Former RTE radio reporter Valerie Cox has decided to run in the General Election in Wicklow as an Independent. Valerie will run on a platform for older people. Two reporters go to war, one runs for office and the other is Henry McKean, who has to play second fiddle to Valerie Cox.
In this double trouble exclusive, the two reporters stop commuters at Bray Dart station.
