First hour: News review: with former deputy mayor for finance and Conservative councillor for Westbury-on-Trym and Henleaze Geoff Gollop: By-elections in Stoke and Copeland – Tories took Copeland which has been Labour for 80 years – is Corbyn not the right leader for Labour? Or is the media not giving him a chance? - PR voting; the FULL Bristol City Council hit list of cuts to make £33million next year – why not use QE to pay off debts of banks? Chief Economist at Bank Of England, Andy Haldane, and the Chief, Mark Carney, both say Brexit not such a disaster as they thought - Mr Gollop was also in the firing line – for Bristol Council overspend – what are Bristol reserves for if not for this?
