Letter : Anti-Tory tactics

Sir: Earl Russell must know perfectly well that the Liberal Democrats are not going "to come into power" at the next election whatever they promise (letter, 20 December).

Since they clearly are serious about constitutional reform they would do well to encourage tactical voting in every constituency where the two major opposition parties are simply cutting each other's throats. Targeted tactical voting could be a major factor in achieving an overwhelming Tory defeat and thus the removal of the largest obstacle to constitutional reform.
