This morning, my son woke me up with a somewhat confusing picture he’d been drawing as I dozed. It was, he explained, a spot-the-difference. Similar characters, replicated on both sides of the page, with asymmetries I was required to highlight. So far, so seven-year-old.


Half an hour later though, his homemade game felt pretty relevant as I pored over the Sunday papers.


On one side of the page was New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern, celebrating a landslide victory over her National rivals. On the other, the treat that is UK politics was laid bare, with feuding politicians dodging questions about their own adoption of the rules taking up column after column. The difference was not hard to spot.
