First hour: News review: with Labour councillor for St George and Trooper’s Hill Fabian Breckles. Every Bristol City Council Tory councillor was invited to come on this week’s show, as well as Bristol and South Gloucestershire Tory party chair Dr Barbara Lewis, to explain reasons for this week’s snap general election being called but none were available. Theresa May refuses to take part in any TV debates so broadcasters may run debates with an empty chair where the Tory leader should be. Also, election fraud charges may be brought against around 30 Conservative MPs from fraud at the 2015 general election. Tory MPs face being prosecuted for electoral fraud while they are fighting the upcoming general election campaign. The CPS confirmed it must announce whether it will prosecute before 8 June.  Many students and poor people are disenfranchised – Register by 22 May to vote in the General Election on 8 June. Labour MP Dennis Skinner asks Theresa May if any 2015 election fraud Tories will be standing in this snap election. Labour MPs won’t have to face members’ re-selection ballots to stand again. The party is waiving requirements for ‘trigger ballots’, avoiding a potential internal row. Jeremy Corbyn has set out a 10-point programme for Britain’s future, Corbyn’s 10 pledges: 1) Full employment and an economy that works for all: based around a £500bn public investment via the planned national investment bank. 2) A secure homes guarantee: building 1m new homes in five years, at least half of them council homes. Also rent controls and secure tenancies. 3) Security at work: includes stronger employment rights, an end to zero hours contracts and mandatory collective bargaining for companies with 250 or more employees. 4) Secure our NHS and social care: end health service privatisation and bring services into a “secure, publicly-provided NHS”. 5) A national education service: includes universal public childcare, the “progressive restoration” of free education, and quality apprenticeships. 6) Action to secure our environment: includes keeping to Paris climate agreement, and moving to a “low-carbon economy” and green industries, in part via national investment bank. 7) Put the public back into our economy and services: includes renationalising railways and bringing private bus, leisure and sports facilities back into local government control. 8) Cut income and wealth inequality: make a progressive tax system so highest earners are “fairly taxed”, shrink the gap between the highest and lowest paid. 9) Action to secure an equal society: includes action to combat violence against women, as well as discrimination based on race, sexuality or disability, and defend the Human Rights Act. 10) Peace and justice at the heart of foreign policy: aims to put conflict resolution and human rights “at the heart of foreign policy”. Tony makes a plea to nationalise Bristol Water who have been using legal tricks to pursue him for an imaginary debt for the last ten years. Bristol Water got a county court judgement against him using legal manoevers to ensure Tony was not able to submit a defence. Water regulator OFWAT determined Bristol Water prices were the most overpriced in all of Britain so Bristol Water set their over-paid lawyers on OFWAT too. Yvette Cooper points out that Theresa May keeps breaking her promises at Prime Minister’s Questions.
