The first-ever India Inc. survey of voter intentions confirms the obvious dealignment of British Indians from the UK's Labour Party; what is less obvious is where these votes will finally go, writes India Inc. Founder and CEO Manoj Ladwa. Winston Churchill famously described politics as the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month and next year; and then to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn′t happen. The landmark India Inc. Optimus Poll released this week on British Indian voter intentions could well go down in the annals of the December 2019 General Election history as a timely foretelling, up for Britain's political parties to grab in time or then struggle to explain why they failed later. The poll, conducted by YouGov of eligible voters from the UK's 1.5-million strong Indian diaspora, makes it loud and clear that this electorate cannot be taken for granted as a block vote. They may have traditionally identified with the Labour Party but that vote-share is in freefall, registering a 12 point drop since the last election in 2017. This, however, is not immediate good news for the Conservative Party either, which is currently down four points from 2017 and doesn't seem to be successfully attracting the floundering Labour voters, many of whom seem to be attracted towards the anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats.
