On general election day I really don't feel it is my place to give any views on how the campaign has gone, there will be plenty of that over the next few days. All I will say is to urge people to get out and vote.

When Yougov published the results of its "mega" MRP poll last week showing that the Conservatives were on course to win a 68-seat majority in the 2019 General Election, I found their findings credible.

We are now just two weeks away from the 2019 General Election - it really is the business end of the campaign when people really are going to have to make up their minds how to vote.

Watching this week's 2019 General Election debate reminded me so much of watching a Champion's League second-leg match between two heavyweight teams where one starts 3-0 ahead after the first skirmish.

General elections are nothing if they not major media events - and the way the parties are playing news organisations has always been a feature of how democracy works in this country.

A week on from the confirmation that the 2019 General Election will be held on December 12, we've been undergoing the traditional "phoney war" as parliamentary business is polished off and former MPs return to their constituencies.

So we've finally got a decision and we are going for a General Election on December 12 - the first case of Jingle Polls since the 1920s!

Over recent weeks, I've tried to keep this column as Brexit-free as possible - but there really is only one political show in town at the moment and I'm starting to think the issue could have a serious impact on Suffolk politics.
