Self-fulfilling and self-serving

When a newspaper headlines the detail of an opinion poll rather than the basic numbers, the chances are that it's looking for a story that better fits its view of the world. The Telegraph says that almost two thirds of people think Gordon Brown is an electoral liability. Given how badly Labour is doing, that's hardly surprising.

In fact, the Tory lead is down six points. Labour are still 18 points behind - but these are silly numbers that are unlikely to be reflected in an election in two years' time.
