Tory poll shows RESPECT in third place in Hodge Hill


Anti-war party Respect received an unexpected but welcome boost to its electoral campaign in the Hodge Hill by-election yesterday.

For an internal Tory party opinion poll published in yesterday's Birmingham Evening Mail shows Respect running in third place - ahead of the Liberal Democrats.

"Blair's New Labour is more unpopular than ever because of the war in Iraq and the Lib Dems are backing the occupation and dispatch of 3000 more troops, so it's hardly surprising that Respect is gaining ground at the expense of the pro-war and pro-occupation parties," said Respect's Hodge Hill candidate, John Rees.
