As we go into general election campaigning, this is vital information from Another Angry Voice:
Since the announcement of the December General Election there has already been a proliferation of different tactical voting websites, but you have to be extremely careful with them.
One of the major problems is that some of them, especially the supposedly Remain-focused “Best For Britain” Get Voting site, are clearly hyper-partisan party political propaganda outfits disguising themselves as ‘useful advice’.
In several marginal Tory/Labour constituencies this dreadfully partisan site is advising people to vote for the Lib-Dems, despite the fact they got less than 5% of the vote last time around.
This outrageous Get Voting site is recommending the Lib-Dems in a whopping 99 seats where they trailed the incumbent by over 25,000 at the last election!
To put this absolute insanity in perspective the biggest swing of the 2017 was a swing of just over 15,000 in Gordon, north East Scotland.
What this “Best For Britain” Lib-Dem front operation is advocating is trying to achieve 99 record-breaking mega swings simultaneously.
After years of contemptuously dismissing Leave voters as total idiots who believe in unicorns, these Lib-Dem Remain Ultras are actively advising people to waste away their votes on an absolutely ludicrous unicorn hunt!
The site mentioned above is only one of several; until you know otherwise, I think you should consider all of them to be suspicious.
The best advice This Writer can give is to use your own intelligence.

I am proud to be a part of my Labour election campaign. I was at our local party meeting tonight. I am pretty much housebound, relying on others to help me get out, so can’t go canvassing, but I will be bundling leaflets and helping with mailouts. We all have our part to play. Anyone who wants a better future for the country, for the oppressed, sick, homeless, unemployed, etc, can help in some way. No way will switching to vote to a relatively minor party who are trying to win votes by defaming one of the most honest MPs we have help fix the problems this country has. I am sick of hearing politicians and journalists trying to destroy the reputation of such an honest and gentle campaigner, the man who could improve the lives of millions of us. People believe what they hear, they don’t fact check, which is why sites such as this need to be shared. Thank you so much for being one of the few journalists who have inspired me to find ways to use my time to help others, to help people I may never meet.
What a lovely comment! Thank you for saying that.
