Letter: Some advice on tactics

Click to follow
Sir: Polly Toynbee is correct in asserting that "on the ground each local party wants to win" ("Britain Decides: The Independent's Guide to the Election") Of course they do. Anyone who's been a candidate has shared that ambition - especially given that it's costing you and your family in terms of lost income, time and stress.

However, she is wrong to call the tactical vote a "blunt instrument for change" - given a reliably informed local constituency electorate there is no reason why switching to the candidate most likely to beat the Tory should not deprive the Conservative Party of at least 90 seats.
