Mrs Mike had a call from a Liberal Democrat canvasser today.

She was very polite, I thought. He asked which way she was planning to vote and she said Labour.

Then he tried to tell her the only way to keep the Tories out was to vote Liberal Democrat and she told him to clear off.

Because that’s how you get a bad result.

In my constituency, we don’t know that the Conservatives are going to get a large number of people voting for them. They have in the past, sure – but public opinion is turning against them, across the whole of the UK.

But if (in this case) the Liberal Democrats start going around telling you to vote for them, in case there’s a large Tory vote, then you’re no longer electing a government.

You’re betting on how to stop somebody else doing it. And that’s not the point of the exercise.

You don’t get any extra points for supporting the party you thought had a better chance of winning than the party you really wanted in office. In fact, that way, you stand to lose a lot more than you expect.

Ask yourself: Which of the national political parties has the policies that are best for you?

And act on the answer when you come to vote on June 8.

That’s all there is to it.

If you don’t know what the parties’ policies are, after all this time (and after reading This Site), then visit their websites and read the manifestos that are published there.

Think for yourself.

Don’t let other people tell you what to do – especially not the newspapers or TV pundits.

It’s your vote. It’s your choice.

Don’t let other people make it for you.

And base your vote on what you think is best for you and the country.
