If you’ve been following the two main characters on the hustings, paying attention to all – or anything – they’ve been saying then you know the issues, and what, if anything of interest they’ve been selling since the campaign got underway, if anything is at stake on a personal level. First and foremost it’s an election, nothing new, and it’s unfolding as it always does, with the usual …
