Only a few days before federal election, and I feel like I’ve been here before
There's an upstart Conservative party leader putting on a friendly, faux-progressive face. He’s looking to take power. The struggling centre-left governing party stares down the barrel of a global crisis and the party leader's carrying the weight of past controversies. There's also a progressive third party, wildly popular with young people but not polling high enough to make it a real contender to win. The polling is so tight that nobody can predict who will form the next government. That was the U.K.’s 2010 election.
