The Lewes Lib Dem leader, Chris Bowers is sadly deluded in his views on tactical voting. Yes, Labour voters in Lewes did used to vote tactically for the Lib Dems to keep the Tories out. However, that was before they realised that voting Lib Dem would actually put the Tories into Government.
Thanks to Mr Clegg’s duplicity, I’m afraid all bets are off for the next General and District Elections. As was shown by the Lib Dems’ dismal showing in the County Elections in Lewes, Norman Baker, Chris Bowers and his colleagues are in deep trouble.
Rather than fantasise about tactical voting intentions, the Lib Dems should quit this disastrous, cruel, right wing Government now to preserve the little dignity they retain.
