Theresa May’s approval rating appears to have been hardly affected by the Tory party conference, a BMG/ Independent poll has found. 33% of voters are satisfied with the job she is doing, and 52% are dissatisfied, giving her a net rating of -19, down from -18 two weeks earlier. By contrast, Jeremy Corbyn’s popularity was boosted by the Labour conference: he is on 0, up from -10.

72% of people think Britain is “on the wrong track” – up from 56% in April. By contrast, just 8% of Chinese people feel the same way about their country. Ipsos Mori
