Michael Heseltine visited the Tory stronghold of Beaconsfield last night to support the recently ousted Conservative, now independent candidate, Dominic Grieve. During the event, which also saw Remain rebels David Gauke and Anne Milton take to the stage, Lord Heseltine was asked his advice to long-standing Conservative voters in the upcoming general election. Heseltine told the audience:

I am telling them to vote for what they believe and what the Conservative Party has stood for all my life and certainly their's and put country first. And what I think that means in practical terms is they either vote for the defrocked Conservative candidates, of which we have three excellent examples here, or they vote for Lib Dems.

Lord Heseltine's comments can be heard here:
