Not if they weren't aware how best to defeat the Tory candidate

Agree. He's not been behind that message at all. If we want to avoid a landslide Conservative victory (and most, I think, would) we should vote for the candidate most likely to beat a Tory incumbent whether it's Lib Dem, SNP or Labour.

I won't be retweeting it - but Boris Johnson has copied my video. Tanks. On. The. Lawn. Don't share his version in outrage - instead, share my original version. It's us versus Cummings, Johnson, Trump and Farage - retweet this and spread the word!

If you're still thinking of voting Tory - and want the NHS to be there to look after your kids and parents - please, please don't

When confronted by a picture of a 4 year old boy lying on a hospital floor Boris Johnson grabs the reporter's phone so he doesn't have to look it it. Hard to think of any recent prime minister - or remotely decent human being - who would have done the same.

Lifelong Labour voters also need to support where they have the best chance of unseating a Tory MP

Hard though it is to support Labour at the moment it's important to remember that the Labour party is not Corbyn and if you want to deny the Tories a disastrous outright majority you need to vote tactically especially in these target seats.

The electoral calculus site now estimates 335 seats for Tories. Anything less than 322 & Johnson majority is gone. This election - our future - thus comes down to 14 seats. 14 marginals where less than 60 000 - 0.1% - of voters will decide. Doable - if we’re not tribal.

Whatever your party affiliation this is a lovely video from a candidate who's clearly rooted in her own community. I hope she wins.

If you're tempted to tuck into the stollen you bought for Christmas you might as well treat yourself to a glass of something delicious with it too.

Kinda wish was leader of the Labour party. Socks it to the Tories like no-one else.

If you're having goose rather than turkey this Christmas you may be wondering what wine to drink with it. Here are my favourite pairings

The case for tactical voting on Thursday. Please get hold of the Observer guide to whom to vote for in 50 seats - and spread the word. We need a hung parliament to stop Britain becoming a leper in Europe while economically and socially crippled at home.

Coq au vin is of course cooked in wine - usually red wine - so does that mean you should pair it with the wine you've used to cook it in? Probably not and here's why

There's nothing like a hamper to make you feel festive and we've got a fabulous one on offer as this month's prize (for delivery in January to cheer the lucky winner up once Christmas is over)
