Abstract

Conservatives like @iaindale are rightly anxious that the tactical voting surge could help rob the Tories of a majority. He fears that reporting the possibility of tactical voting is akin to advocating it: “The BBC should be very careful about how it covers this tactical voting story. Reporting it is fine, but promoting it isn’t.”
