It’s less than a hundred days now till the next general election here in the UK. This means we can expect to be bored silly by endless electioneering, little of which will have any real effect on our lives.

Meanwhile, here’s a spot quiz that you can put to any candidates that bother you on the doorstep: You print the wrong phone number on a mobile campaign billboard. Do you a) blame it on the printer, b) admit that you didn’t bother to read the proof, or c) claim that only you can save the NHS.
