Voters are certainly deserting the Conservatives in record numbers, and with good reason. But it is incredibly arrogant of the Liberal Democrats to claim victory when we may still be a year or more off a general election.

The Liberal Democrats seem to assume they will gain all these votes – but you should beware of politicians who take your vote for granted.

What is certain is that the Liberal Democrats will not be winning a general election on the back of their current 15 seats – only the Labour Party can do that with their record lead in the polls suggesting they can add to their 196 MPs. A Labour MP in Guildford would put our constituency at the heart of a new Labour government.

To those thinking of tactical voting – don’t do it. Vote for something, not just against something. Vote for policies and send principled politicians to the house, not electoral wheeler-dealers. If you don’t know what they stand for, don’t vote for them!
