If you oppose Brexit, here is a handy list of the top 50 marginal seats where your vote could make a serious difference.

* Vote for the right party to keep a Brexit-supporting MP out.

* Remember - your vote is worth more than one vote anyway, because many people don't vote - and in one of these seats, your vote is worth FIVE or even TEN times as much as a regular vote. Don't waste it!

Here is the list, drawn up by polling expert Peter Kellner for the Guardian.

“47* Kensington
“Former Tory MP Sam Gyimah is standing as a Lib Dem; Labour is now third, polls say VOTE LIB DEM”

This is shockingly untrue and is a terrible recommendation. Sam has been spreading lies about the labour mp throughout the campaign and even so the polls show that he is not in a position to beat the conservatives.

One of the observers recommend snp votes is in a constituency where the snp candidate has withdrawn and been suspended for antisemitic comments.

There’s a place for tactical voting and it will hopefully have some big impacts on Thursday but this list from the observer is based on polls from 3 or more weeks ago and risks splitting the vote in crucial seats.

The Sheffield Hallam recommendation is similarly dreadful
