Labour's private polling says it could lose 220 of its MPs

The well-connected Jackie Ashley reveals the sensational fact in her Monday Guardian column:

"Some Labour people may think I'm sounding too gloomy, but those who have been privy to recent private polling are a lot more than gloomy. This suggests that Labour could return to the Commons with just 120 MPs or thereabouts, taking the party back to 1930s territory. As ministers look for jobs to keep themselves going after politics, a Miliband move to Europe looks sensible."

I can't imagine things getting that bad for Labour but gobsmacking nonetheless.
