Tac­ti­cal vote could thwart To­ries

Yorkshire Post - - FRONT PAGE -

JUST 82 peo­ple vot­ing tac­ti­cally in a key York­shire mar­ginal seat could help deny Boris John­son and the Con­ser­va­tives a Gen­eral Elec­tion ma­jor­ity, it is claimed.

New anal­y­sis by the proEU cam­paign group, Best for Bri­tain, sug­gests that as few as 40,704 tac­ti­cal votes across just 36 mar­ginal seats would be enough to pre­vent a Tory ma­jor­ity. Dews­bury, where Labour’s Paula Sher­riff de­fends a ma­jor­ity of 3,321, is the con­stituency where the fewest tac­ti­cal votes could stop the To­ries win­ning.

The study also showed with­out tac­ti­cal vot­ing, the To­ries are on course to win 345 seats and a ma­jor­ity in Par­lia­ment.
