Tactical defeat

Sir: Venessa Redgrave's intention to vote Liberal Democrat is more curious than you seem to suggest (report, 19 April). In her constituency of Brentford and Isleworth, she knows very well that the Liberal Democrat candidate cannot win. In 1992, the Lib Dems there gained a fraction over 10 per cent of the vote. By not voting Labour, she will actually be assisting the Conservatives. Is another spell of Conservative government what revolutionaries really want?
