Here is my take on #TacticalVoting in #Wycombe:

1) 2017 and even 2015 stats are based on a very different context and we have 2 different parliamentary candidates (#LibDem & Labour) 👇
2) Labour are not a #ProRemain party. They’ve repeatedly voted against #Remain amendments & refused to join the #RemainAlliance. #Wycombe is still a #Remain constituency. Corbyn is a Brexiteer & can whip his MPs to vote for a #Lexit deal, contrary to suggestions at local level 👇
3) Labour have a national policy against entering into pacts. They won't do it.
4) The last time Labour held #Wycombe was in 1945. They cannot currently win even with tactical vote share. They couldn't win #Wycombe in 2017 when they were at 40% in the polls and riding the coat tails of Corbyn's wave at the time 👇
They can't win here now when they're polling at least 10% lower and when Corbyn's popularity is significantly lower.
5} Moderate Tory voters will never vote for Corbyn, nor will #LibDem voters, but they will vote for the #LibDems. Moderate Labour voters will not vote for Johnson, but will vote #LibDem. #Remain voters know that the #LibDems are the clear, consistent voice of #Remain 👇
We (@LibDems) support a #PeoplesVote on any deal and promise to #RevokeArticle50 if elected to form a majority government, having campaigned with that as a manifesto promise 👇
6) Our current canvass data is looking very strong and I have also been told by someone in the local Tory party that they see me, @ToniBrodelle, as the main challenger to Baker 👇
They understand the context here too. Lifelong Conservative politicians, such as Lord Heseltine, have been advising lifelong Tory voters to vote #LibDem.
7) The people of #Wycombe deserve an MP who - in this time of polarised politics - is not afraid to take a principled and balanced stance, as opposed to engaging in dog whistle rhetoric, and who will fight for #liberal values. That is who I am and what I stand for.
