Letter: Grotty prospect

The Independent Online
Sir: It is good to learn from Brighton that in some senior Liberal Democrat circles the possibility of not standing candidates in seats otherwise winnable by Labour is catching on. If the same common sense developed in senior Labour circles, the Grot (Get Rid Of Them) tactical voting campaign would be unnecessary. Grot is proposing a modest target of some 68 seats, chosen on realistic criteria.

What possible justification can there be today for putting up candidates who split the anti-Tory vote, or for voting in such a way as to allow a Tory victory?

Yours faithfully,

BRUCE KENT
