The Labour party has a 30 point lead over the Conservatives in a YouGov poll of voting intentions as a majority of voters blame the government for soaring mortgage prices.

That’s down slightly from 33% the week before. More than half of voters blamed the government for the economic crisis, while 24% attributed higher borrowing costs to global pressures. And only about 5% thought the Bank of England or mortgage lenders were responsible for the upheaval.
