Interesting research by the Fabian Society

On LabourList interesting research by the Fabian Society is reported:  http://labourlist.org/2014/06/research-indicates-decline-in-support-for-labour-among-blue-collar-working-groups/

"Labour has dropped in five key groups: transient single populations in routine occupations; low income families; comfortably off industrial workers; middle-aged working couples with young children and older couples in former council estates or low value housing."

"...in many constituencies which Labour is targeting in 2015 almost a half of all households are comprised of these groups."

When we consider Labour's prospects for 2015 I would say things are looking bleak.
