The *real* split between Communists and Trots

has been revealed, in France at least, by a survey on holiday plans, dreams and the like c/o those nice people at IFOP.

35% of the Plain People of France fancy lounging around somewhere sunny, as do 36% of PCF enthusiasts but 43% of Trots (they are referred to as the extreme left, but I know from experience that this means Arlette Laguiller and Olivier Besancenot fans). The more amusing bit is the revelation that the Trots are fearful philistines and are significantly less interested in cultural tours - 15% vs 23% for the Plain People of France and 28% for Communists. Mind you, apparently no Front National voters fancy this at all.

Further, offered a range of long haul destinations, Communists disproportionately fancy Guadeloupe and Trots Rio. Communists have a major downer on Oz and New Zealand, whereas those deeply hypocritical Greens really fancy it - what about all those CO2 emissions, eh? Better still, neither Trots nor Tankies dream of a jaunt to China - 2% for the former, 0% for the latter against 3% for Gauls overall. Shame they did not offer the DPRK (of which more later).

Could someone repeat this survey in the UK for comparative purposes, so we can find out the preferences of Tories, Liberals and Labourites ?

TWR - I am constantly delighted by the splendidly odd surveys commissioned by the French, and wish that Yougov, Mori etc had a few more imaginative clients.
