The BBC reporter has picked up on the fact that the forthcoming elections here in Guildford are particularly interesting because of the high degree of uncertainty in the outcome.

It was a similar story in 2019 when Tim Donovan came to Guildford to interview the Dragon editor who then turned the tables and interviewed the BBC editor.
