IT’S OBVIOUS there’ll be no ProUK single party gaining a working majority in May. Even though the SNP will probably see its vote share, in both constituency and regional lists reducing it will still, with the aid of the Greens have the largest block of seats (we can probably ignore the effects of Alba & Alliance 4 Unity, neither will poll well). Forming a government however will not be as simple for them as it was in 2016.
In order to protect our UK and Scotland’s place in it, we need to vote tactically to maximise ProUK seats at the expense of the narrow-minded single focus nationalists.
It is very easy to do, vote for the best ProUK constituency candidate based on 2016’s result, and vote in the Regional List for EITHER Scottish Labour OR Scottish Conservatives (your choice) in every region – with the one caveat that in North East Scotland it’s also fine to vote Scottish Liberal Democrat.
Obviously, if something major in your region or constituency occurs before Thursday, then use your common sense.
There are a number of ProUK tactical voting websites, many of which have an element of ‘political adjustment’ in their suggestions of whom to vote for; they don’t publicly share their logic or methodology for these adjustments.
The website VOTE UNION has pure guidance (as above) based on the 2016 outcome (the same as in my own work) – it is the best and only website providing apolitical ProUK tactical voting guidance, please use it. It is also very easy, all you have to do is pop your postcode in the dialogue box provided and it will tell you your constituency and region (just in case you are uncertain) and the voting recommendation.
It’s time to be tactical, think carefully, vote wisely, vote the #SNPOut.
