Observer says vote Lib Dem in Ealing Central & Acton to keep Tories out

Following the endorsement by The Guardian and The Observer of the Liberal Democrats nationally, yesterday's Observer published it's "guide to Britain's key battleground seats," which says:

"When the Tories’ target list of 130 seats held by Labour was drawn up months ago, those requiring a swing of 5% and less were thought ‘in the bag’, and the ‘battleground seats’ needed between 5% and 9%. Now many could be ‘in play’ and vulnerable to a Lib Dem assault. We have identified two which on today’s standing of the parties would be expected to go to the Liberal Democrats - Ealing Central & Acton and Northampton North."

This is further evidence that I can win here in our constituency if everyone who does not want to see a Conservative victory here unites behind me.

The final sentence of the Observer's leader column gives a clear call to action:

"There is only one party on the ballot paper that, by its record in the old parliament, its manifesto for the new one and its leader's performance in the campaign, can claim to represent an agenda for radical, positive change in politics. That party is the Liberal Democrats. There is only one way clearly to endorse that message and that is to vote Liberal Democrat."

Hi Jon,

I appreciate that you're probably very busy with last minute canvassing, but as I mentioned in my email of 30th March, any information regarding your viewpoint on the Digital Economy Bill would be helpful in securing my vote.

You used to work in the computer industry, you can't tell me you don't have an opinion!

Thank you, again, for your time.
