Sir: I would like to tell Chas Loft ("Next time, can I have a vote that counts?"; Letters, 3 May) not to give up hope. As he has only voted four times he is obviously a relatively young man and so has more chance to get his wish than I ever had.
After voting Liberal and Liberal Democrat for 50 years, only once has my chosen candidate got into Parliament. I hoped to get a second one this time, but it wasn't to be.
