Election campaign highlight

I have loved following this podcast during the election campaign. Listening to a candidate answer questions off the cuff portrays their character/ability/agenda infinitely better than what can be taken away from reading the carefully crafted wording in the manifestos. I will be sad to see this end!

Excellent show

This is a valuable resource at a testing time for voters. Messrs Guillou and Byrne have put together a daily dose that makes the daunting task of picking up to 38 out of 118 seem far more manageable, while respecting the candidates who’ve decided to put their heads above the parapet. I’ll miss this when it’s all over.
