Labour begs for Lib Dem votes
"A senior Cabinet minister has declared that there are so few major policy differences between Labour and the Liberal Democrats that potential supporters of the third party should vote tactically in order to keep David Cameron out of Downing Street.
"In a controversial intervention Lord Adonis raises the sensitive issue of tactical voting amid growing signs that Labour strategists regard a hung parliament as their only realistic hope of clinging to power after the general election.
"Writing in The Independent today, the Transport Secretary, a former member of the Social Democratic Party and ex-Liberal Democrat councillor, says: "To avoid a Tory government after 6 May, it is vital to grasp now the fundamental Labour-Lib Dem identity of interest. This can best be served by Labour coming out of the election as strong as possible, able to form a government.""
