Michael Heseltine: Reject Boris Johnson and vote Lib Dem

It’s been a weekend of high profile endorsements of the Lib Dems.

First, Alastair Campbell went canvassing with our Luciana Berger in Finchley and Golders Green:

Then Dominic Raab’s predecessor as Conservative MP for Esher and Walton backed Lib Dem Monica Harding.

From the Surrey Comet:

In a dramatic twist in the race for his old seat, Mr Taylor urged residents not to vote Conservative and said the Lib Dem’s candidate Monica Harding was “worthy of support” instead.

Monica welcomed Ian Taylor’s endorsement:

And last night, Michael Heseltine, always on the left of the Tory Party until he was ejected from it for saying he was voting for us during the Euros, announced he was doing the same again.

    You know, despite the dismal poll figures, I get a feeling that, amongst those, who take their politics seriously, something significant is changing. We desperately need a sensible, common sense, but still radical party as both Tories and Labour continue to abandon the middle ground.

    Whether it has happened too late to influence the outcome on 12 December is the big question at the moment, especially as large swathes of our population regard ‘politics’ as something slightly embarrassing and those that practise it a bunch of clowns. I just hope that the Lib Dems row back on revocation, at least as a final act, rather than as a ‘time out’ to give us a chance to reconsider.

    And, as far as Lord Heseltine is concerned, it would appear that he is kind of returning to the fold, in that the first time he stood for Parliament in a welsh constituency as an undergraduate in the 1950s was, I believe, whether it was the local Tory convention or not, as a ‘National Liberal’.
