Tactical vote could thwart Tories
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.
