WHEN the voters to go to the polls today they will have to remember that not only are they voting for a local MP or particular party but electing the next Prime Minister.

They will also have to consider who then has the best chance of looking after the interests of the UK and its citizens in such a volatile world both at home and abroad.

It could well be that Friday the 13th will be a defining day for more than one reason with Mr Trump and Mr Putin waiting anxiously for the result.
