A leading pro-Brexit group is set to launch an app to help Brexiteers vote tactically at the next general election.
Banks’s tweet implies that the app will allow Brexiteers to easily see which local candidate they should vote for, in order to make sure a Brexiteer has the best chance of winning the seat.
Boris Johnson has been applying pressure on opposition parties to submit to a December general election, and is planning to hold a vote on the subject on Monday.
The Prime Minister has refused to forge an election pact with the Brexit Party, which means Farage will likely run a candidate in almost every seat. The Leave.EU app will try to avoid the two parties splitting the pro-Brexit vote and allowing a third party (likely Labour) to win the seat.
Plans are already underway between anti-Brexit parties to co-ordinate their efforts at the next election – through a group called Unite to Remain.
The hope is that pro-Remain parties will stand aside in certain seats, to maximise the number of anti-Brexit MPs in Parliament.
With Brexiteers ramping up their efforts, the Unite to Remain campaign is more vital than ever.
