THE SUNDAY TIMES: Wise guys

“I have no advice for you if you are voting Saturday, particularly because I am mindful of the fact that if you are reading this, you have not closed your mind to the facts that surround you and you are therefore not in need of advice.

“I can only try to take you through the questions I will be asking myself between now and Saturday before I cast my own vote.”
