How popular is the Shadow Cabinet?

Posted on 23/10/2015


Labour List regularly runs a poll to find out how Labour supporters rank their own Shadow Cabinet’s effectiveness.

The latest results show that a relatively new and unknown Shadow Cabinet is already as popular as Ed Miliband’s last, ill fated, shadow team.

While not as popular as the former Shadow Cabinet was just before the election (when it was packed with big-media performers), given the new team is only a month into their new jobs, the new shadow ministers will be hoping this gives them a platform to build on.

But their media appearances will need to increase – and improve – if these rankings are to improve.
