AC Grayling, the celebrated Oxford University philosopher, has thrown his weight behind Liz Leffman, the Liberal Democrat candidate in the Witney by-election.
Grayling urges everyone who is pro-Remain to vote tactically for the Lib Dems. The majority of Witney voted for Remain the Referendum.
I want a #pro-EU party to win David Cameron's Witney seat. That means the Lib Dems in this instance: a concerted effort on tactical voting.

Liz Leffman said:
“Naturally I very much welcome the endorsement of such a serious thinker as AC Grayling.
“The bookies have the Lib Dems as the clear challenger to the Tories, and a strong showing for the Liberal Democrats would act as a warning to the Conservative Brexit government.
“With the Labour Party hauling up the white flag on the Single Market, only the Liberal Democrats are fighting for our European future and to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.”
