  • If the Lib Dem’s are to make the most of the opportunity this GE offers them then they have to take a risk. I think the Lib Dem’s should come out and rule out putting the Tories in power and that there is an olive branch for Labour but no more than that.

    The olive branch would be that the Lib Dem’s want a referendum and that in the 6 months it would take to carry out a referendum they would expect to see the areas of their manifestos that are largely aligned enacted but that tax and spend rises would be limited to something that aligns with the Lib Dem manifesto. Beyond the referendum result there would then have to be another GE as the Lib Dem’s could not prop Corbyn up for longer than 6 months as he himself is not someone the Lib Dem’s can tolerate.

    This could be a game changer in this election. Labour voters would know that if they vote Lib Dem they won’t get Tory. Tory remainers would know that the deal is time limited and spending would be kept in check.

    Tactical voting could be the big winning ticked for the Lib Dem’s who should see this election as an opportunity to rebuild to a strong base
