Blair feels his pain

The Iraq war hangover is continuing to undermine the public's faith in Tony Blair and his government, a new poll shows.

The Populus poll for The Times found 34% support for Labour - two points down on July.

Mr Blair's woes were good news for the Liberal Democrats, who were on 25% - four points up on last month.

The Conservatives were on 32%, also down two points.

The poll contained further good news for Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy.

He recorded a personal trust rating of +23% - compared to Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith's +10% and Mr Blair's -4%.

I guess I understand British math as much as I use the word "poleaxed," but a minus four percent can't be good, can it?
