Leading pro-Brexit group to launch tactical voting drive for general election

A leading pro-Brexit group is set to launch an app to help Brexiteers vote tactically at the next general election.

Big Brexit funder (and Nigel Farage’s personal sugar daddy) Arron Banks indicated on Twitter that his campaign group, Leave.EU, would have a tactical voting app ready “in the next 10 days or so.”


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.

  1. Refuse to have a coalition is perhaps a bit. Nigel didn’t really ask for a coalition. It was another only if. Boris has had that from the rest. Ie we will do this but only if you do that. Then comes along Mr Farage with I will help you win but then came the usual but only if. You don’t offer an affiliation with a threat

  2. Absolutely needed to prevent another Peterborough or Brecon …. Looking forward to this …Labour leave seats good for Brexit party ..Tory leave seats stay Tory πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

  3. I am glad there is a counter movement to deal with Miller’s tactics.
    Tactical voting has never been so necessary. We want Brexit delivered, while preventing Labour getting into power and Corbyn installed in NO 10.

  4. Although not necessarily the case (I know old remainers and young leavers) it’s fair to say much of the leave vote is less tech savvy than much of the remain vote, so apps for tactical voting are most likely going to be more affective for remain. So how can non tech savvy leave voters be guided more effectively to tactically vote?

  5. Happy about an alliance if it keeps out the bastard Socialists, however for ths Tories it’s not just about Brexit: there are other pressing issues πŸ‘πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§
