Here on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

On Election Reporting Scotland tonight:

:00:00.:00:00.

Scottish Labour launch their manifesto with a cast-iron

:00:07.:00:08.

I see like a marriage on the salary I have. I have two go to food banks.

:00:09.:00:30.

I aim nurse who can manage. -- can't.

:00:31.:00:31.

And the nurse who took Nicola Sturgeon to task in last

:00:32.:00:33.

night's TV debate gets an apology on social media.

:00:34.:00:35.

Monday's almost over but not before your nightly helping

:00:36.:00:38.

of everything you need to know from today on the election

:00:39.:00:41.

Another day, another manifesto launch.

:00:42.:00:43.

Today, it was the turn of Scottish Labour to launch

:00:44.:00:45.

their vision for the country and this one hadn't even been leaked.

:00:46.:00:48.

Our political editor Brian Taylor reports.

:00:49.:00:55.

Kezia Dugdale concedes pulls apparently pointed to a UK

:00:56.:01:05.

Conservative victory while insisting she is fighting to install Jeremy

:01:06.:01:08.

Corbyn in Downing Street. She told cheering supporters she deplores the

:01:09.:01:13.

Conservative approach to pensioners and benefits, including the revised

:01:14.:01:16.

offer on social care in England. The Tories are standing in this election

:01:17.:01:21.

on a miserable and mean manifesto that will take our country backwards

:01:22.:01:23.

and he went back and get away with it.

:01:24.:01:27.

APPLAUSE But how? In Scotland, that partly

:01:28.:01:31.

involves a tactical appeal to counter the SNP. They are defending

:01:32.:01:37.

56 Scottish seats out of 59. She edged doubters in constituencies

:01:38.:01:40.

where a labourer was second to consider turning red again. The

:01:41.:01:45.

author, a federal UK and opposition to independence. In these 120 pages,

:01:46.:01:53.

you'll find a guarantee that they will oppose a second referendum on

:01:54.:01:56.

independence. The Labour Party is built on solidarity and could never

:01:57.:02:03.

take our country down that path again. We are divided on. She said

:02:04.:02:08.

the key manifesto policy was a living wage of ?10 gallon. -- per

:02:09.:02:16.

hour. They will increase public spending with a spin off for

:02:17.:02:21.

Scotland. Hull Scotland will see a huge increase in public service

:02:22.:02:25.

investment. That figure is around ?3 billion in parliament. Money for

:02:26.:02:28.

schools, hospitals and the benefit of being partly the United Kingdom.

:02:29.:02:32.

That means higher taxation, although not the Jeremy Corbyn version. The

:02:33.:02:37.

Scottish Labour manifesto in involves plans to increase the basic

:02:38.:02:42.

rate of business tax, although that is in the hands of Holyrood. At the

:02:43.:02:47.

launch, Kezia Dugdale said she was excited by the opportunity presented

:02:48.:02:52.

by Labour's manifesto. Here are more details. They propose a Scottish

:02:53.:02:55.

investment bank with ?20 billion of resources. The also involve

:02:56.:03:02.

high-speed rail to Glasgow and Edinburgh and they will align the

:03:03.:03:08.

Trident nuclear gerunds, in alignment with the UK policy, not

:03:09.:03:13.

the Scottish policy. Starting in Livingston, that is the package

:03:14.:03:16.

Kezia Dugdale will offer voters. Our nightly panel of pundits join me

:03:17.:03:21.

now, live in the studio this evening it's Labour campaigner and former

:03:22.:03:24.

candidate Cat Headley, the journalist Peter Geoghegan

:03:25.:03:26.

and in Edinburgh the political Welcome to you all this evening.

:03:27.:03:37.

Thank you for joining me. Cat, first, what lies behind a U-turn

:03:38.:03:41.

from the Conservatives on social policy in the middle of an election

:03:42.:03:45.

campaign? We saw two day that reason eight, when he is on, she can take

:03:46.:03:53.

it. -- Theresa May. We saw this without having the election in the

:03:54.:03:57.

first place, national insurance contributions in the budget. This is

:03:58.:04:01.

sending a clear message that Theresa May every Prime Minister of the 8th

:04:02.:04:06.

of June is actually going to, when the going gets tough, do a runner.

:04:07.:04:12.

As she has on the campaign trail. Strong as stable. It would fight

:04:13.:04:16.

weak and wobbly instead, doesn't it? In dollars but what is telling is

:04:17.:04:22.

that when the manifesto was together, it was a closed room. --

:04:23.:04:30.

it does. It works well when the going is good, it is like an echo

:04:31.:04:35.

chamber. There wasn't much. When Andrew Gilbert was talking today,

:04:36.:04:40.

the policy-making does not work very well under a general election

:04:41.:04:44.

environment. In a way, we are just... A group setting, you said,

:04:45.:04:50.

they just go and roll with it. It. It unravelled by the end of last

:04:51.:04:56.

week. It was not going to be sustainable. These are issues,

:04:57.:05:00.

especially around the idea of a dementia tax, it is a general

:05:01.:05:05.

phrase. For a larger families, it is relevant to something they are

:05:06.:05:08.

dealing with an everyday lives it was going to be unsustainable. The

:05:09.:05:13.

much more fundamental question is, how did this come about in the

:05:14.:05:16.

birthplace? Added and not get scrutinised before the public

:05:17.:05:19.

domain? That is more damaged than the Eugene itself. -- in the first

:05:20.:05:30.

place. -- than the U-turn. When it comes to paying foreign social

:05:31.:05:33.

provision, the Conservatives need to show courage in the conviction in

:05:34.:05:37.

asking for more from better off pensioners. The way they went about

:05:38.:05:41.

it was wrong, but was this U-turn a mistake, and the policy itself is

:05:42.:05:48.

fundamentally right? I think the policy, as was, and this old thing

:05:49.:05:54.

is undeniably messy... But the policy as was was at least the

:05:55.:05:59.

beginning of a more responsible discussion about what is a massively

:06:00.:06:04.

complex and of course costly problem in intergenerational poverty and the

:06:05.:06:08.

cost of social care. The requirement is sometimes to sell someone's house

:06:09.:06:13.

to pay for that. That is a discussion we need to have and I

:06:14.:06:18.

thought the policy unveiled last week was a beginning of something

:06:19.:06:22.

quite promising in that respect but it is obviously political

:06:23.:06:28.

kryptonite, there have been a view focus groups since then and the

:06:29.:06:32.

prime minister and advisers are obviously panicking on that. -- a

:06:33.:06:38.

few. I think we have now taken several steps back. Ivo gives group

:06:39.:06:43.

that is obvious is the Cabinet. Do you agree that she did not go

:06:44.:06:47.

through the rank process? Patently been the case. It is well documented

:06:48.:06:53.

that the prime Minister and her two chiefs of staff, Timothy and Fiona

:06:54.:06:59.

Hill, it seems that this simply was not tested. Not only beyond that

:07:00.:07:05.

tight circle but crucially without as, members of the public. -- with

:07:06.:07:15.

voters. ACAS Ireland guaranteed you never support independence, will

:07:16.:07:18.

that be enough to build a Labour revival? Kezia has been very clear

:07:19.:07:24.

that it is time to move on, Scotland have had enough. -- A cast-iron

:07:25.:07:34.

guarantee. Scottish Labour is very clear that we are against a second

:07:35.:07:38.

referendum. It is time to focus on education and the health service

:07:39.:07:42.

anti-government have to get back to the day job. The debate last night

:07:43.:07:47.

was very clear from the audience members, on the doorstep, the

:07:48.:07:50.

independence referendum is a distraction and it is also a

:07:51.:07:56.

convenient excuse in relation to the EU because the result was going to

:07:57.:07:58.

be something that Nicola Sturgeon will find for the SNP to argue for

:07:59.:08:04.

another referendum. If it was not EU, it would be something else. With

:08:05.:08:10.

the SNP and independence, and the Tories with the cuts, have they made

:08:11.:08:17.

a difference today? In some ways, they hidden stories of the council

:08:18.:08:20.

elections, which is a few weeks ago but feels like a few months ago, is

:08:21.:08:26.

that Labour did OK, they survived, come out unscathed. The jewellery

:08:27.:08:29.

came out in seconds but it was not as bad as it could be. The challenge

:08:30.:08:34.

for Labour in a first past the post system is that it is that

:08:35.:08:42.

nationalism. The SNP are really a force of nationalism, the Tories are

:08:43.:08:46.

not, where the Labour Party fit in? We are going to have any --

:08:47.:08:53.

unionism. Are they on the Unionist side? They are probably not going to

:08:54.:09:00.

pull off enough. What about with the SNP? And they will probably be able

:09:01.:09:04.

to pull a view but not quite. Will they generate multi-? It is

:09:05.:09:07.

difficult to look across the country and see where they generate multi-?

:09:08.:09:10.

It is difficult to look across the country and see where the seat will

:09:11.:09:12.

come from. There is one where it'll certainly struggled to vote. Whether

:09:13.:09:16.

these were at an Edinburgh salve, because it is very different to

:09:17.:09:20.

these policies, who knows. The prime Minister was interviewed by Andrew

:09:21.:09:23.

Neal Elliott today, she refused to take part in your leaders debate.

:09:24.:09:29.

You're the one in Edinburgh. -- Andrew Neil. Is it difficult for

:09:30.:09:37.

leaders to get the point across? -- the leaders debate in Edinburgh. Of

:09:38.:09:44.

course. You heard the nurse Jake the First Minister to chat. We should

:09:45.:09:48.

not overstate the impact of the leaders debates, manifesto launches,

:09:49.:09:53.

and indeed political campaigns. The average voter will not follow this.

:09:54.:10:03.

-- take her to task. They are they are watching this programme. All of

:10:04.:10:08.

it has its place but it can be exaggerated. Villagers decided to

:10:09.:10:14.

vote on a general mood of candidates, a general impression of

:10:15.:10:17.

party, leaders and policies. Very little of this actually cuts

:10:18.:10:22.

through. Kezia Dugdale for example had a good night last night, I

:10:23.:10:27.

think. Anti-gay, knows journalists thought she did very well at the

:10:28.:10:37.

manifesto launch. -- And today, most journalists what she did very well.

:10:38.:10:39.

More from the campaign trail coming up, but first Anne Lundon has

:10:40.:10:42.

Thousands of investors seeking compensation

:10:43.:10:46.

from The Royal Bank of Scotland are taking legal action against

:10:47.:10:48.

This morning the case was adjourned for 24 hours

:10:49.:10:52.

The shareholders claim they were misled

:10:53.:10:57.

over the bank's financial health in the run-up to its near-collapse

:10:58.:11:00.

More from our business correspondent Andy Verity.

:11:01.:11:07.

Inside this building behind me this morning the courtroom was packed,

:11:08.:11:10.

and included among the people were shareholders who were asked to fork

:11:11.:11:13.

The bank was trying to raise ?12 billion, the

:11:14.:11:20.

biggest ever fundraising at the time done by a UK corporation, and when

:11:21.:11:24.

you raise money from your shoulders, you are supposed to tell them what

:11:25.:11:27.

they are handing over their money for.

:11:28.:11:29.

All the relevant details are supposed to be there, like for

:11:30.:11:31.

example how financially strong or weak you are.

:11:32.:11:33.

What the shareholders are claiming is that the bank didn't

:11:34.:11:37.

tell them relevant information, like for example the fact that executives

:11:38.:11:41.

had been telling each other that if they could not borrow from other

:11:42.:11:45.

banks, they might run out of money in a day or less.

:11:46.:11:48.

The shareholders are irritated now that this has

:11:49.:11:51.

taken years to progress, and that the bank has spent

:11:52.:11:54.

?110 million of money that comes from you and me,

:11:55.:11:58.

taxpayers, fighting this case, only to decide it wants to settle it now.

:11:59.:12:02.

One shareholder, Neil Mitchell, gave me his views.

:12:03.:12:07.

It is absolutely atrocious that 110 million has been

:12:08.:12:10.

booked so far, it will be at least 125 million.

:12:11.:12:13.

This is taxpayer money being used to defend litigation

:12:14.:12:18.

against their own shareholders, their own customers, which is what

:12:19.:12:27.

RBS do in dealing with anyone dares complain against them.

:12:28.:12:29.

Now they have decided to adjourn the case for

:12:30.:12:33.

a day while they try to continue settlement talks.

:12:34.:12:38.

Among the people they are talking to are former employees

:12:39.:12:40.

of the bank who are encouraged persuaded to take out shares

:12:41.:12:43.

themselves, investing thousands of pounds,

:12:44.:12:44.

and of those shares went from ?2 down to 11p.

:12:45.:12:50.

They are not happy, and in order for them to be

:12:51.:12:53.

settled with, the bank is going to have to go some.

:12:54.:12:57.

A former head teacher at a Catholic boarding school in the Highlands has

:12:58.:13:00.

gone on trial accused of assaulting boys in his care.

:13:01.:13:02.

83-year-old Father Benedict Seed is charged with assaulting

:13:03.:13:06.

eight pupils at the now closed Fort Augustus abbey school

:13:07.:13:08.

Inverness Sheriff Court heard that the alleged attacks included

:13:09.:13:15.

hitting boys with a hockey stick and a spiked golf shoe.

:13:16.:13:18.

A man has appeared in court charged with attempting to abduct two young

:13:19.:13:26.

girls from a playpark in Falkirk last Friday.

:13:27.:13:30.

50-year-old John Bermingham is also accused

:13:31.:13:35.

of assault and breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order.

:13:36.:13:37.

He made no plea during the private hearing at Falkirk Sheriff Court

:13:38.:13:40.

Getting back to the campaign trail now - the Liberal Democrats called

:13:41.:13:53.

on the SNP to drop their demands for a second independence

:13:54.:13:56.

referendum for the sake of Scotland's businesses.

:13:57.:13:59.

When the challenge for businesses is so huge with Brexit, the last thing

:14:00.:14:05.

they need is even more trade barriers with independence. That's

:14:06.:14:10.

why the SNP should call off their campaign for another independence

:14:11.:14:14.

referendum. It will damage in this and it is bad already with Brexit.

:14:15.:14:16.

-- damage businesses. The SNP picked up on the biggest

:14:17.:14:18.

issue of the day - they used Theresa May's apparent

:14:19.:14:21.

U-turn on social care to push their credentials as the protectors

:14:22.:14:23.

of Scotland's pensioners. Left to their own devices, the

:14:24.:14:31.

Tories will take away the triple what protection on pensions and the

:14:32.:14:37.

Winter fuel on balance, and impose a dementia tax in England. That says

:14:38.:14:42.

to me that, for Scotland, we need the strongest possible voices

:14:43.:14:45.

standing up in Scotland's interest and that can only come from the SNP.

:14:46.:14:51.

A few hours ago, in a BBC interview with Andrew Neil, Theresa May

:14:52.:14:54.

refused to put a figure on the upper limit people will have to pay

:14:55.:14:58.

towards the cost of social care, saying it will be

:14:59.:15:00.

The Prime Minister has denied going back on her manifesto plan

:15:01.:15:03.

to make people in England pay for their care, up to the last

:15:04.:15:06.

We're going to publish a green paper, a consultation, so we want to

:15:07.:15:20.

take people's views and views of charities and others on how the

:15:21.:15:26.

system should be operating. We will have within the consultation that

:15:27.:15:31.

concept of an absolute limit on the costs that people have to pay.

:15:32.:15:33.

Well, I'm joined by some politicians - tonight the Scottish Labour MSP

:15:34.:15:36.

James Kelly is here in Glasgow and in Edinburgh we've got

:15:37.:15:38.

the Scottish Lib Dem candidate Christine Jardine,

:15:39.:15:40.

the Scottish Conservative MSP Gordon Lindhurst and the SNP

:15:41.:15:42.

Welcome to you all. Gordon Lindhurst, you were on the campaign

:15:43.:15:58.

trail over the weekend. Just how badly was the social care issue

:15:59.:16:04.

going down and does that explain this dramatic U-turn today? I think

:16:05.:16:10.

what the Prime Minister did today was clarified the policy and it's

:16:11.:16:15.

something that she says will be subject to further consultation. Did

:16:16.:16:20.

anybody mention it to you over the weekend? No, what people have been

:16:21.:16:24.

saying on the doorsteps is they recognise the need to address social

:16:25.:16:28.

care and other policy issues in this area but this particular

:16:29.:16:30.

announcement does apply to Scotland, where we have our own set of policy

:16:31.:16:36.

considerations. but this has been a massive climb-down in the middle of

:16:37.:16:43.

an election campaign. As I said, this only applies to England, but

:16:44.:16:46.

the Prime Minister is seeking to clarify things and detail on policy,

:16:47.:16:53.

is always something that needs to be clarified and were consultation is

:16:54.:16:57.

going to be carried out, that can be done so no, it's not something that

:16:58.:17:01.

voters were really overly concerned about in Scotland at the weekend

:17:02.:17:05.

when I was out campaigning. Polls seem to be campaigning a bit away

:17:06.:17:09.

from you right now. When you look back at this YouTube and social

:17:10.:17:12.

care, will you think this was a key moment where the election possibly

:17:13.:17:19.

turn for you? I think this election campaign still has two weeks to run

:17:20.:17:24.

and I don't think this issue in and of itself certainly in particular in

:17:25.:17:28.

Scotland is really something that is going to heavily influenced the way

:17:29.:17:35.

voters vote -- influence the way voters bought, so I think one can

:17:36.:17:39.

look at it the other way and think that it shows the Prime Minister is

:17:40.:17:43.

listening to what people have to say and wants to allay fears that may

:17:44.:17:48.

not have a basis. Tommy Sheppard in Edinburgh, elections are made of

:17:49.:17:51.

manifestos and moments of last night's readers debate, in stalled

:17:52.:17:54.

Nicola Sturgeon that she struggled to afford to live and how to turn to

:17:55.:17:59.

foodbanks and was criticised by one of your Westminster colleagues on

:18:00.:18:03.

social media and subsequently faced a barrage of abuse as a result.

:18:04.:18:06.

There has been an apology on social media to her. Would you like to

:18:07.:18:13.

apologise to her on TV? I haven't seen what was said, Stephen, but of

:18:14.:18:17.

course I would condemn any abuse of social media, I get it myself, and

:18:18.:18:23.

there is no place for that in this election campaign but I understand

:18:24.:18:25.

the nurse did raise some important points that go to the heart of this

:18:26.:18:29.

election campaign and that is who is paying for Brexit, who is paying for

:18:30.:18:35.

its territory, and only the SNP are coming up with a coherent plan to

:18:36.:18:40.

challenge austerity at source and decided should be the poor and

:18:41.:18:43.

vulnerable in our society who have to pay for that. People shouldn't

:18:44.:18:50.

have to continue working and not see an increase in their wages. So

:18:51.:18:55.

you're saying it was important for her voice to be had and was wrong of

:18:56.:18:57.

your Westminster College to criticise her for what she said? --

:18:58.:19:04.

Westminster colleague. I'm not sure what the debate was, but I'm sure my

:19:05.:19:09.

colleagues would have acted in good faith with the information they had

:19:10.:19:12.

but the information has now been corrected an apology has been made

:19:13.:19:18.

and I think it should go on. I think the important thing today is the

:19:19.:19:22.

bizarre spectacle of a Labour manifesto for a Westminster election

:19:23.:19:25.

suggests income tax should go up for basic rate taxpayers in Scotland but

:19:26.:19:29.

not anywhere else in the UK. How on earth do they expect anyone to vote

:19:30.:19:34.

Labour in that context? It is quite a bizarre offer to the electorate.

:19:35.:19:38.

The SNP wants to see those with broadest shoulders who can afford to

:19:39.:19:43.

do so paying more in tax and we want to CNN to two Tory cuts but to be

:19:44.:19:48.

transferring them onto the backs of low-paid families in Scotland like

:19:49.:19:52.

the nurse last night is not the way of doing it. James Kelly, Scottish

:19:53.:19:57.

Labour, your manifesto launched today. Last day Kezia Dugdale

:19:58.:20:01.

accused the SNP have been blinded by independence. The headline on your

:20:02.:20:05.

press release, Scottish Labour manifesto to oppose another divisive

:20:06.:20:11.

referendum. One page mentions independence 11 times. The truth is,

:20:12.:20:15.

you're the party that can see past. Greenback we made it clear today

:20:16.:20:20.

that at the heart of our proposals is that we are stronger together. We

:20:21.:20:25.

are opposed to another independence referendum but what is becoming

:20:26.:20:27.

clear in this election is that Labour are winning the political

:20:28.:20:30.

arguments and that is because the policies that we are putting forward

:20:31.:20:36.

like a ?10 minimum wage, an additional ?3 billion to the

:20:37.:20:39.

Scottish budget and taking railways back into public ownership are

:20:40.:20:43.

popular policies and that is why Labour has momentum going into this

:20:44.:20:46.

final two weeks. Back to independence, it seems to be the

:20:47.:20:49.

most important thing for you because it is all over the manifesto today.

:20:50.:20:53.

I can much, Jeremy Corbyn said a second referendum was aptly be fine.

:20:54.:20:57.

Now we're getting a cast-iron guaranteed never to back

:20:58.:21:02.

independence. How does that square? Labour have made it absolutely

:21:03.:21:06.

clear, consistently through this campaign, that we are opposed to a

:21:07.:21:10.

second independence referendum. Module leader, Jeremy Corbyn! The

:21:11.:21:16.

SNP have taken their eyes off the issues they should be concentrating

:21:17.:21:21.

on like the crisis in the NHS, the pay cap that the nurse spoke about

:21:22.:21:25.

last night and trying to improve literacy and numeracy in our

:21:26.:21:28.

schools. I've been on the doors tonight in Rutherglen and those are

:21:29.:21:31.

the issues that people are talking about. They don't want another

:21:32.:21:34.

referendum and it's time that the SNP got on with the issues that they

:21:35.:21:37.

are responsible for. That's what people are saying in this selection.

:21:38.:21:44.

Christine Jardine for the Liberal Democrats, we heard in the debate

:21:45.:21:47.

last night a very clear choice in the election, the SNP for

:21:48.:21:50.

independence and two major parties opposed to independence but with

:21:51.:21:52.

different views about how the country should be run. Where does

:21:53.:21:57.

that leave any space for the Liberal Democrats? I think you're

:21:58.:21:59.

overlooking the fact that Willie Rennie has been absolutely clear

:22:00.:22:04.

that we are opposed to independence. There were three major parties last

:22:05.:22:09.

eight opposed to it. Not on the basis of the polls, Christine.

:22:10.:22:13.

Withered leaves us is, as a party who are the only party in Scotland

:22:14.:22:19.

who are pro-UK and pro-EU and want to see Scotland at the heart of the

:22:20.:22:26.

UK and the heart of Europe with a strong relationship with Europe. But

:22:27.:22:31.

the Labour Party Conservative parties have come down now in favour

:22:32.:22:34.

of hard Brexit. Jeremy Corbyn has backed to -- Theresa May's view.

:22:35.:22:43.

That puts 80,000 jobs at risk in Scotland. We are the only party

:22:44.:22:45.

standing up for a relationship with Europe which will protect those

:22:46.:22:49.

jobs. Ruth Davidson said today she would be happy to work with you and

:22:50.:22:53.

Labour to form a prounion coalition to force the SNP out of Hollywood.

:22:54.:22:58.

Would you work with her? I think what we're seeing across Scotland is

:22:59.:23:01.

people deciding for themselves who they would see as the best party to

:23:02.:23:07.

vote the SNP alt of the seats for Westminster and that is what we are

:23:08.:23:10.

concerned about at the moment. We have an election where it is clear

:23:11.:23:16.

that Theresa May is heading towards a victory. So you would work with

:23:17.:23:21.

her? I think what we're seeing is that people are deciding for

:23:22.:23:24.

themselves how they are going to vote. so would you work with her?

:23:25.:23:29.

Our leader has made it clear there will be no coalition at Westminster

:23:30.:23:32.

and what we're doing is, we are working for the people across

:23:33.:23:37.

Scotland who want to see Scotland at the heart of the UK and the UK at

:23:38.:23:41.

the heart of Europe. That's what we're working on. Thank you all of

:23:42.:23:44.

you for joining us this evening. Now there's around an hour

:23:45.:23:45.

left to get yourself registered if you want to vote

:23:46.:23:47.

in this election. I found out earlier

:23:48.:23:50.

just how easy it is. This is Sam. She's 22 and doing work

:23:51.:23:59.

experience. Sam dropped off the electoral roll after the

:24:00.:24:02.

independence referendum. Up to 7 million eligible people across the

:24:03.:24:09.

UK are not to vote and this particular -- there is particular

:24:10.:24:16.

concern for younger voters. Hondas under-21s have dropped off the list

:24:17.:24:21.

since the vote was introduced. But it just takes an address and

:24:22.:24:25.

national insurance number to join. Now that that's done, my next

:24:26.:24:26.

decision is who to vote for! So if you want to register before

the midnight cut-off in just one Before we leave you tonight,

:24:28.:24:30.

you know that feeling when you are caught doing something

:24:31.:24:37.

you shouldn't be doing? This was Foreign Secretary Boris

Johnson sneaking a look at the questions before

being interviewed by Fellow Tory Sir Nicholas Soames

called him a rotter. And that's Election
