What strategies might we see in the 2019 election?
The election is looming - and already we're seeing polished films on social media, snappy campaign slogans and fiery exchanges between politicians.
Behind the scenes are groups of specialists - all coming up with what they think is *THE* strategy to secure their party's place in Number 10.
So what might we see over the next six weeks? 5 Live's Anna Foster and Tony Livesey put the question to four people who know exactly what those conversations are like.

The UK villages feeling the impact of climate change
Fairbourne is a small village on the west coast of Wales. In the shadow of Snowdonia, the village, thanks to rising sea levels, is expected to be the UK’s first community to be decommissioned as a result of climate change.
Sea defences will stop being maintained in the 2050s, but Gwynedd Council said it may begin "decommissioning" the village before then and start moving residents out. People living there are angry – public consultations on the plans are ongoing.
Meanwhile in the village of Happisburgh in Norfolk, climate change is said to be speeding up the impact of coastal erosion. 40 metres of land has been lost this year.
5 Live reporters Rory Carson and Stephen Chittenden have been speaking to people in both villages.
