How popular is the Shadow Cabinet?

October 23, 2015

0

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 […]
