Tony Blair very low in opinion polls

Under the label don't feel too bad because someone else is likely to have it worse: Tony Blair's approval rating is at 30 percent and only 29 percent approve of his government's record to date. To put this in some perspective, in a three party system it has been much harder for Blair to break 50 perent than it has for Bush. Blair can win handsomely with only 40 percent of the vote. On the other hand, given how articulate Blair is, it is amazing that he can be this low in the polls.

Blair is this low in the polls because of his complete failure to deliver on any of the election promises he made when elected- crime rates are spiralling (and the Home Office is advising police to caution burglars instead of arrest them), the NHS is collapsing, taxes are rising and Labour is beset by corruption scandals.

Domestic issues are what voters here in the UK are most concerned about and Blair is roundly failing to provide what the people want.

Good points. i just put up some posts showing the concerns about crime getting more and more out of control.
