Helen and Stephen digest the latest from the battle for No.10 – from the merits of Corbyn’s on-screen performance, to concerns surrounding the Conservative campaign. Plus, You Ask Us: is the Labour poll surge right? And will there be high youth turnout?
Quotes of the Week:
Stephen on Theresa May’s campaign performance: “Labour and Corbyn have done everything right. And the Conservatives have done everything wrong […] it’s like watching a team do a great passing move to a donkey.”
Helen on the Conservative manifesto: “There is a feeling of misery generally about the manifesto. And about the feeling that the Labour manifesto was all cookies and sprinkles – and theirs was all porridge and carrots. And that the porridge and carrots had all been taken away from you.”
