#TV10 Tactical Voting Will Kick Balls Out

Ed Balls has a notional majority of 9,000 in his newly created Morley & Outwood seat. That should be taken with a pinch of salt, it is a new seat created after boundary changes, in local council elections over the last 2 years Labour has polled badly, even coming fourth on occasion.

With Labour nationally polling in third place the swing against Labour means Balls’ notional lead is likely to be negligible, his Tory opponent Antony Calvert is fighting an energetic campaign, he’s raised money online for his campaign and he has caught the imagination of many with his “Balls Moment” advert. George Osborne has decided that even though Morley and Outwood wasn’t even on the Tory’s 200 target seats list, that it is now a priority.  In an email to hundreds of thousands of supporters today Osborne says

Labour’s collapse has opened up new opportunities for us that we will be making the most of in the week ahead. We are expanding our battleground against Labour and now have a good chance of winning many more seats where they are haemorrhaging votes, including Ed Balls’s seat in Morley & Outwood.

Last week Guido suggested that Tories in Islington South should vote for the LibDem to oust the sitting Labour MP, this week Guido is urging LibDem voters who want to wipe the smug smile off Ed Balls’ face to lend their vote to the Tory candidate. The LibDem can’t win, Antony Calvert can. It will be the most memorable moment of election night, just as in 1997 when Portillo was defeated. Are you up for a “Balls Moment”?

UPDATE : Punters are putting their money on Calvert to take the seat, he is now the favourite to win.

        week 1 – winners: tories and job tax
        week 2 – winners: cleg and debate
        week 3 – winners: lib dems and Torries neck and neck
        week 4 – its the economy stupid

        Is economy really a strong suit for a chancellor who made so many mistakes… GB can only say what others would have done, he cant really defend what he did do

        This weeks debate cant be good for someone who says UK will emerge are strongest out of the recovery and its .4% q1 and .2% q2 and heading for double-dip recession…..

        Liebour spin after debates is getting desparate…….

        Henry Cooper lost a fight and said to umpire he though he just shaded the win, umpire said champions dont shade wins..

        Same with GB – he is the PM and should walk all over the others and isn’t

        I know TB did not do debates – but does anyone feel he would not have creamed him opponents and thats something GB is not even close toooo

        Even with his attack dogs saying he wins on a technicality (substance)…

        The real PM wins on all counts. So far only Cameron and Clegg have achieved that.

        Maybe GB so desperate for power he wants Clegg as PM and labour having 60% of the cabinet…. ?

          If immigration and treason has got to the level where those in power ( the media and goverment) feel they can now get away with claiming the British as a people don’t exist(funny how they never made such claims when they wanted us to fight and die in the second world war – clearly people who died for nothing!) then you just know it is time for the BMP to clean house and rid us of the treacherous filth.

      MR BLINKEY says:

      I am in two minds about unseating Ed Balls.

      1) This odious little man gets his comeuppance. For years he has ignored his constituents whilst climbing the greasy pole by being Gordon Browns chief ‘Yes Man’. He ALWAYS put Party interest over national interest. He has never had a proper job; a brief stint as a journalist before becoming Gordon Browns lick-spittle in 1992. Along with that patronising wife of his, flipped his home and screwed the taxpayer out of hundreds of thousands of pounds. He deserves to lose and I look forward to cracking open the champagne when the camera pans to Blinkey’s face as he learns that he lost a 9000 majority. I will be saying “haha, fuck you Balls” whilst downing my Bolinger.

      On the positive side, I think Anthony deserves to win. He has fought a fantastic campaign and is a genuine local candidate. Balls was parachuted in for ‘a job for life’, conveniently next to his wifes seat!

      2) Ed Balls wins, just, by a tiny margin, clinging on by a few dozen votes. He can then continue to be a thorn in the side of the Labour Party for years to come. Blinkey will continue to go on the TV and make a fool of himself. He will delude himself and others that he can become leader. He will kick and scream when the Blairites seize control after his old boss resigns as Labour leader.

      I would genuinely prefer outcome number 1, but outcome number 2 is no bad thing!

          That got me thinking – what odds could you get on Balls coming 3rd in a 2 horse race?

          • Fisiani says:

            In NZ we have been doing tactical local voting for years. For instance Epsom in Auckland is a rock solid Tory area but the voters are given the nod to cast their vote tactically for the leader of a small coalition party. In Wellington the Green voters swing in behind the Labour candidate.
            The electorate simply need to be reinforced with the message that if voters of the party that came 3rd in 2005 cast their vote for the party that came 2nd then the sitting Labour MP will be tossed out

        What? That public opinion is slowly but steadily swinging against Cameron and that the Conservatives haven’t a chance in hell of forming government on their own, that if tactical voting didn’t exist we might actually end up with a group of MPs in government people can relate to, that a hung parliament – some call it coalition government – may in fact not be the worst thing that could happen?

        So what concept is it that I haven’t quite grasped?

          A liberal says:

          Thats national “strategic” voting your talking about.

          The concept we are talking about here is local “tactical” voting. Here you don’t vote for who you want but to stop someone else getting in, in this case Ed Balls.

          Thats the concept and from your posts you are not getting it.

          • Anonymous says:

            And if Labour aren’t going to be part of the government what difference does it make if Balls gets in or not?

            Don’t get me wrong, I’d be delighted to see him lose his seat.

          • A liberal says:

            Thats the point of the tactical vote!

            To make him lose his seat, the national strategic overview doesn’t matter here. What does is that a scumbag MP loses bigstyle, one who might otherwise have been the next Labour leader for all we know.

            Also if we are in hung parliament territory Labour may well be part of the next government it depends who bribes, sory persuades Clegg to support them and/or whether or not Labour attempt a minority government.

          Presumably “Anonymous” you’re far too young to remember the last Lib/Lab pact in the 70′s?
          Sadly I’m not- and it was a fucking disaster.
          The Liberals were shafted, the country paralysed by political infighting, and the coalition inevitably imploded.

          • A liberal says:

            I’m not trolling here but I don’t think this will happen again.

            I would guess that a deal would be done whereby the Liberals will back A or B for a fixed period of say 24 months in return for electoral reform, their income tax plans and trident in the strategic review.

            It wont be an infighting bonanza for the first 18 months till the economy is seen as stable-ish then bickering like you said and collapse at around 24 months followed by our first PR or AV GE.

            That said I firmly beleive the Tories will attempt a minority government if their numbers of MP’s are high enough and simply dare the Liberals to stop them, knowing that if they do the economy will implode and the tories will gain at another snap election.

            Interesting times indeed…

            Don’t forget that labour in the seventies did more or less try and pretend they were decent, honourable and truthful, and coalition didn’t work then.

            The modern labour party does not pretend to be anything other than a buch of lying, smearing, bullying, thugs.

            If there was a Lib-Lab coalition the bodies of the Liberal members of cabinet would end up in the Thames.

        Given the rampant success that other winners of the Nobel Prize for Economics have vested upon us, I’m always inclined to be sceptical of anything produced by such a prizewinner.

        I’m not a fan of any form of representative democracy – the Swiss model where more direct democracy is the default is more fair and certainly doesn’t seem to have harmed the Swiss as a nation. But if we must have representative democracy, then it must be tempered by strict limits on party whips and by the opportunity to recall representatives if enough constituents decide it is desirable – giving the idiots five years of job security seems to be unwise on the basis of past experience.

        And you’re not geeky – you just wish you were :P

      “Balls loses gets given the vacant seat in Kirkcaldy”

      Only if Brown’s around to protect him, and that’s looking increasingly unlikely.

      Vote Balls, get bollocks. – Who you should ‘vote tactically’ for depends upon which of the LibCon candidates is a more plausible one. That’s not something I know and that’s not something you can tell from council polling figures. What I can tell you is, for better or worse LibDem supporters have a sneaky tendency to vote tactically (look at the Glasgow East by-election) and regardless of national swing may well do so to get rid of this oik. Better if there were an independent running against him however and both the LibCon candidates stood down.

          Reading the article, the most disturbing aspect of the whole affair isn’t the percieved anti-Catholic bias or the puerile nature of the document, but the very procedure that was used to produce such a document in the first place.

          It seems that the whole point of the exercise was to maximise the amount of positive spin that the government could garner from the Pope’s visit – the whole thing looks like a ghastly PR exercise handled by the sort of arseholes who normally do that sort of thing. I used to have some dealings with the FO back in the 90s, and it’s inconcievable to me that such an approach would have been taken back then, or even considered appropriate given the nature and the calibre of the FO staff back then.

          What this indicates to me is how far the Blairite / New Labour agenda has compromised even the FO – a department where media perception should be the last on the list of criteria to consider when planning such a visit, security and fulfilling the wishes of the visitor being the top two.

          Still, it has identified at least one public sector job that could be lost without negative impact to the economy…

      Unsurprisingly, I’ve also never once known them go somewhere that has, for example, strong local B*N*P support.

      Brown’s got a majority of around 18,000.

      So, you only need to convince 9,000 people there who normally vote labour (or who don’t normally vote at all) to vote for the SNP.

      9,000 people is only about 13% of the electorate there.

      So, despite the fact that he’s currently got a 58% share of the vote, he actually only needs a 13% swing against him from existing labour voters and non-voters towards the SNP to lose.

    As the Conservative candidate in Islington South, I have told Guido before that it makes no sense whatsoever to vote Lib Dem here. Their Bridget Fox failed to win in 2005 and has lost her council seat since. Local demographic change, the fact that London voted for a Conservative mayor in 2008, and that Conservatives did well locally in that election and in the Europeans have changed the picture. We have rebuilt the Conservative organisation so strongly here that we are fielding a full slate of 48 council candidates. Conservative posters are going up round the borough, volunteers are pouring in and we have won huge support for our campaign helping council leaseholders and tenants fight dodgy repair work. Don’t vote Lib Dem – help rebuild the Conservative alternative in Islington.

      Antonia, perhaps you can tell me ….. my local MP has her name backwards on the posters that are now appearing, so that anyone who didn’t know would think her name was Miller Maria. What’s going on ? Why would the Conservatives think that was a good idea ?

    Moley says:

    Sometimes people miss the obvious.

    Labour can storm back into the lead and demolish both Conservatives and Liberals; Here’s how.

    The Conservative’s plan to stop the increase in NI contributions is going to take billions of pounds out of the economy.

    The way to put that money back into the economy and halt the decline in our country is to triple NI contributions and implement a flat rate income tax of 75%.

    With all that money going into the economy our GDP will race ahead like a rocket and Government debt will come tumbling down.

    You know it makes sense, and you know that when it comes to the debate on the Economy, Gordon Brown will wipe the floor with this compelling logic.

    streamfisher says:

    Has any anybody yet done a proper analysis of the effect of level (ish) pegging of the three main parties as to voting intentions, how many seats could the Conservatives gain relative to New Labour by swings to the Liberals assuming much of the swing would be away from Labour to LibDem rather than Conservative to LibDem? and on top of this the tactical voting against individuals (Balls, Bercow and sundry other ‘Mega’ troughers) add to this the effect of 200 + M.Ps standing down to cop for their Golden Goodbyes, then the possibility of a post election stitch up to hang onto power and it all gets very complicated, wouldn’t like to be a settler at William Hills trying to work out the odds on this one.

    Those Tory activists descending on Morley & Outwood should make a big thing about how Ed Balls spent £3 million of taxpayers’ money refitting his office with a massage room.

    That would be an absolute scandal in any economic climate, but in a recession….!

    The man is a disgrace, an arrogant buffoon who holds the public, including every one of his constituents, in utter contempt.

    Anyone who is aware of this massage room scandal and still votes for Ed Balls needs taking into care. The Tories must make sure that nobody in Morley & Outwood goes out to vote before being made aware of it.

    Bring this man down and make him pay for his own massages.

Kevin Maguire on the less than electrifying Ed Miliband…

“I bet if you went into a pub tonight and started a conversation about ­politics you’d hear strong opinions. David Cameron would be out of touch and Nick Clegg despised while Nigel Farage would divide people sharply. Miliband? In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”
