Labour doubles poll lead over Tories despite anti-Semitism controversy
Labour has doubled its poll lead over the Conservatives despite the ongoing controversy over anti-Semitism.
In a major boost for Jeremy Corbyn, Survation puts Jeremy Corbyn's party four points ahead of the Tories.
Labour is now on 41%, one points up on its previous figure, while the Conservatives have slipped by one point to 37%.
The poll, which was carried out on 31 August and 1 September, also puts Ukip ahead of the Lib Dems for the first time since in two years.
The anti-EU party appears to have cashed in on public unhappiness at Theresa May's Brexit strategy to jump four points to 7%, while the Lib Dems have slumped four points to just 6%.
The poll suggests that Labour has suffered little if any ill-effects from the anti-Semitism row which has gripped the party all summer.
The party's ruling NEC attempted to draw a line under the controversy on Tuesday by finally adoptiong the internationally-recognised definition of Jew hatred.
But Jeremy Corbyn further angered Jewish groups by attempting to add a caveat stating it is not racist to describe the foundation of Israel as "racist".
