Even the most optimistic Conservative won’t be predicting a Tory victory this evening. But they’d surely want at least some bullishness from their leader. Three days after claiming he hadn’t given up on maintaining his grasp on power, a glance at Rishi Sunak’s online rallying cries suggests otherwise. Of the Prime Minister’s last 40 tweets, 38 have referred to stopping a Labour “supermajority” — not exactly fighting talk.

Tory comms throughout this election campaign haven’t been especially inspired, but it’s quite something for the Downing Street incumbent to beg the electorate to make his defeat slightly less embarrassing. With his own seat in doubt, will Sunak send a similar appeal to his constituents in Yorkshire?
