My message to Labour voters living in Lib Dem/Tory marginal seats.

Your vote can stop Boris Johnson on December 12th - but only if you vote tactically.

I have been a Labour supporter all my life. I worked alongside Tony Blair in three election victories, and was Director of Communications under the last Labour Government. I worked for Gordon Brown and Ed Miliband in their campaigns. I will be voting Labour this time too, because where I live they are best placed to beat the Tories.

But at this election I'm asking you to vote for the Liberal Democrats in your Buckingham constituency.

Across the country there are many seats where if people think and vote tactically, BorisJohnson can be stopped from getting a majority. We have seen what he is like with a little bit of power. Imagine what he would be like with a lot of power.

In seats like the Buckingham constituency, the choice is between the Liberal Democrats or Boris Johnson's Conservatives. Voting Labour will just help the

Tories.

My message to Labour people in your seat is that only the Lib Dem can beat the Tory. So don't vote Labour, vote Lib Dem. Rest assured I'm asking Lib Dem and minor party voters in other areas, where the Labour candidate is the obvious choice, to vote tactically too. To defeat the Tories in this election, we all need to put aside our traditional tribal loyalties. The stakes this time are far too high.

Lend your vote to the Liberal Democrats in your area this time - it's the only way to stop Boris Johnson.

With best wishes

Alastair Campbell

Life-long Labour supporter and campaigner

P.S. Remember - in your area, only a vote for the Liberal Democrats can beat Boris Johnson's Conservatives. Make your vote count on 12th December.
