Worried about protest voting?

Are you a labour supporter wanting to protest vote? In the light of various politicos saying 'a vote for Lib Dem could let the Tories in by the back door', it could be a good idea to look at the stats. Have a look at these statistics. Assuming that the lib dems improve their performance from 2001 and get a 22% share of the vote (from around 18%), then labour still get a majority even if the Tories lead by 7%!

Any swing from Labour to Lib Dem, without a corresponding swing to the Tories does not give rise to a Tory Victory.

You may wish to look around the backing blair site, to read the balance of comment here (not just the article) and also consider why a promise from 1997 was not kept.
