I’m now the wrong side of 25, have moved into a new flat to live with my girlfriend, and we have settled into a very domestic kind of life. The highlight of the week has been… the arrival of a new espresso machine (Gaggia Classic) courtesy of Helena’s parents. Once upon a time I would look forward to some kind of political activity each day, and now I look forward to a decent capuccino in the morning instead. Times change it seems.

Extend Article 50 then oust Johnson? Or oust Johnson so as to guarantee the extension of Article 50? This week’s crucial question

I wanted to compare @BestForBritain and @remainutd's tactical voting advice, but the problem is we don't have (and hopefully won't have) a non-tactical election to compare against.
Decided to compare to @Survation's constituency polling, and @YouGov's regional polling.
And having done the analysis of tactical voting: it's in just 6% of seats (38 of 632) where it's not clear who to vote for, tactically.
I am really reassured by this result!
Right then. Main analysis done for my how-to-use-tactical-voting-sites blog post.
I have a list of 38 (of the 632 England, Wales, Scotland) constituencies where it is far from clear how to vote tactically, and where the sites differ.
Will all be written up tomorrow...
