Proportional voting and tactical voting are becoming more important here.
Although there are delays in the London counting, one result tonight shows
massive tactical voting got the Conservative MP out in a Parliamentary
by-election, with Labour voters switching to Liberal Democrat.
Ken's vote is partly a protest vote and most votes are votes against someone.
All this talk of entrism is a waste of time. Serious discussion of tactical
voting is not. There is an advantage in having at least one radical left
representative in the Greater London Assembly.
