The Mayoral contest for London has thrown up three big stories. One is in the implosion of Ken's campaign.
Ken is a consumate campaigner and communicator. The fact that his campaign has failed to deal with various criticisms is significant in itself.
The second potential big story is UKIP. According to some polls, UKIP is doing rather well. Some have argued that the party will overtake the Greens in London and may become the new protest vote party. This was a role that the Liberal Democrats used to have. Now that they are in government they can no longer attract that kind of voter.
If UKIP do well in the local elections across the country, in terms of share of the vote not council seats, people will argue over whether this is a sign of animosity to the EU or simply that voters are fed up with the main parties.
The third big story in the Mayoral election is that there has been scant discussion over policy. This could be because everyone expects Boris to win.
At this point in the electoral cycle the results may not tell us that much about what will happen in 2015. But they could set the terms of the debate for the next few years.
