Who do you think will win the next elections?
Hung parliament 23%
Diplomats tip Tories to win general election
The Conservatives are likely to win next year’s general election, but victory is by no means certain according to a survey of London’s diplomats.
In a poll conducted by Embassy, 46 per cent tipped the Tories to win the election compared to 16 per cent predicting a Labour victory.
However, a significant proportion (23 per cent) forecast a hung parliament, with a further 15 per cent saying the vote could go either way, with one respondent saying the Conservatives were “too dependent” on their leader.
Not one respondent said that the Lib Dems stood a chance, but some felt the party could become kingmakers in the event of a hung parliament
