So there we have it – after months of uncertainty, a general election has been called. We’ll be keeping track of the polls as the campaign unfolds over the next six weeks. Keep checking back for updates!
One week in: Tories in pole position
The general election is now officially underway. The Tories are a clear 13pc ahead of Labour and the ‘Lib Dem surge’ has yet to materialise. Translated into seats, this would give Boris Johnson a working majority of 91. Although down on last week, it would still be more than enough for Johnson to remain Prime Minister.
30 October: And they're off!
MPs have voted overwhelmingly in favour of a General Election which will be held on Thursday 12 December and the first poll has been released.
A big majority for the Conservatives and heavy losses for Labour – but bear in mind this poll was conducted *before* the election was called. It’s all still to play for.
