So Labour's support collapsed in the latest political poll because of the capital gains tax announcement.
That's the current wisdom being touted by the so-called experts.
Those who dare to differ are being called denialists, unable to face the cold hard truth about the harsh poll.
Even though the same poll that saw Labour's support slump to 27% showed 47% of those polled supported a CGT.
Polls paint a particular picture on a particular day. A range of polls can show a trend. The trend has been bad for Labour, and anyone who suggests otherwise is fooling themselves. But whereas polls may have something useful to say, much of the punditry around polling is idiotic noise.
