With me are the broadcasters John Stapleton and Esther McVey.

:00:18.:00:31.

Two editions on a Sunday night, music to the ears of quite a few

:00:32.:00:41.

viewers. Are we going to find the front pages? Maybe we're not to

:00:42.:00:48.

bother. We can just talk at great and length -- greater.

:00:49.:00:58.

The Financial Times quotes a bleak economic analysis by the treasury

:00:59.:01:02.

The Daily Telegraph say the Prime Minister and Chancellor will

:01:03.:01:16.

deliver a warning that leaving the EU will cost Britain hundreds

:01:17.:01:19.

Where are they getting this idea of a recession from? It is a forecast

:01:20.:01:29.

from the Treasurer which says, if you vote to leave, you will be

:01:30.:01:35.

voting for a DIY recession. They think that GDP will go down by 6%,

:01:36.:01:42.

that interest rates would rise and house prices would fall, et cetera.

:01:43.:01:51.

It is also reported by the governor of the Bank of England and people

:01:52.:01:55.

from the IMF. The league campaign are saying it is a very biased view

:01:56.:02:06.

-- Leave campaign. As far as they are concerned, this is more from

:02:07.:02:11.

project fear. One side says one thing, and the other side says

:02:12.:02:17.

something that is the complete opposite. A different point of view,

:02:18.:02:23.

we have read about this now for a long time. Every day it seems to

:02:24.:02:28.

ratchet up. If you are at the chancellor or the Prime Minister,

:02:29.:02:32.

you have to look at the country and what you shouldn't be doing is

:02:33.:02:35.

talking the country and the finances down. At the moment, we are on the

:02:36.:02:42.

eve of the last day that you can get a bid in to buy tighter steel. You

:02:43.:02:51.

don't want to be dismissing the economy -- Tata. There is a warning

:02:52.:02:57.

that this may well happen if you vote this way... You just said that

:02:58.:03:11.

forecasts aren't right. They have said that... A lot of changes at...

:03:12.:03:26.

The reality was that jobs have gone up by 2 million jobs. It was the

:03:27.:03:30.

highest ever employment rates... The same kind of people who wanted to

:03:31.:03:36.

put out an agenda were giving out incorrect facts at the last

:03:37.:03:41.

election. Sorry, we don't have huge amounts of time. The Daily Mail said

:03:42.:03:47.

that Cameron's Guru is saying that we must quit the EU. Which Guru is

:03:48.:03:53.

this? I think this is a very interesting article. Steve Hilton,

:03:54.:04:00.

many people say he helped David Cameron become the Prime Minister.

:04:01.:04:05.

Wobbly one of the brains who helped him. He is saying that this is

:04:06.:04:08.

absolutely wrong and we have to get out of Europe. He says he will take

:04:09.:04:14.

power back from an arrogant, unaccountable elite, and we should

:04:15.:04:20.

put power back to the people, where it wants. It's an earthshattering

:04:21.:04:30.

story. David Cameron's former aid has also campaigned for the country

:04:31.:04:35.

to leave the EU. I wonder what effect this will have outside the

:04:36.:04:40.

Westminster bubble and the bubble of people who we mix with

:04:41.:04:44.

professionally. Would the vast majority of people know Steve Hilton

:04:45.:04:50.

from a bar of soap? When he is challenging what is being said,

:04:51.:04:54.

talking about the NHS, there was a doctor who is the chairman of the

:04:55.:05:00.

health committee, she said it was a cynical distortion of facts about

:05:01.:05:04.

the NHS. When you have people coming forward and saying things like that,

:05:05.:05:09.

people should listen... There would be an equal number of people on the

:05:10.:05:16.

other side saying the opposite. A lot of people would say we would be

:05:17.:05:23.

better out. There are not all of these hell and damnation stories.

:05:24.:05:28.

Austria on a knife edge as the vote is too close to call. The centrist

:05:29.:05:34.

party have disappeared without a trace really in this election. You

:05:35.:05:39.

have a far right candidate and a former Green Party member who is

:05:40.:05:46.

standing as an independent. Line it is a very divided set of choices,

:05:47.:05:50.

but it is people saying, we are not happy with the mainstream parties.

:05:51.:05:57.

They want something different. Right or wrong, they are saying that they

:05:58.:06:02.

have heard the smooth words, they don't believe that and it's about

:06:03.:06:07.

the voice of the people who are coming out in protest wanting

:06:08.:06:10.

something different. You are just seeing it in Austria, you are seeing

:06:11.:06:14.

it right across Europe. And in America too. Immigration is a key

:06:15.:06:20.

issue there as well. That is at least partly responsible of the

:06:21.:06:28.

success of the far right candidate. He will find out tomorrow whether he

:06:29.:06:33.

is successful, 900,000 uncounted postal votes. Cash is used for fewer

:06:34.:06:44.

than half of all consumer payments? It doesn't surprise me. I went to

:06:45.:06:51.

catch a bus in the rain near where I live recently. I was shocked to

:06:52.:07:00.

discover... You can't pay cash on London buses! I had to walk all the

:07:01.:07:10.

way... You got very wet? Those contactless cards, I think they are

:07:11.:07:13.

dangerous because you don't know how much you've spent. Arkley 's says

:07:14.:07:19.

that the biggest rise in contactless payments were those over 60. We are

:07:20.:07:29.

tapping and bowling. We also thought checks were going to die, but

:07:30.:07:35.

apparently they are still going. A lot of the... When they did want to

:07:36.:07:42.

get rid of checks, it was charities he said it would cut back on a lot

:07:43.:07:49.

of donations. I agree with that. Long live the cheque. I don't use

:07:50.:07:54.

cash because the kids have usually pinched all of mine. Don't let them

:07:55.:08:04.

get your contactless card. The Daily Express... Eat more fat to stay

:08:05.:08:13.

healthy? It seems that we have been badly advised? Is the same thing as

:08:14.:08:20.

Europe. They are told one thing, then they are told something

:08:21.:08:23.

completely different. Conflicting advice from so-called experts,

:08:24.:08:28.

saying that eating more fat will reduce the obesity epidemic. This

:08:29.:08:40.

certainly hasn't worked, our obesity problem is massive. It is costing us

:08:41.:08:47.

billions of pounds a year. Bring back real food like steak and eggs.

:08:48.:08:53.

Real, healthy food, as my grandmother would say, a little bit

:08:54.:08:57.

of what you fancy is good for you. It would just be a staple diet and

:08:58.:09:03.

not the sort of, low-fat which is full of other things. As he said,

:09:04.:09:11.

egg and chips, nothing wrong with that. I read a nutritionist's look,

:09:12.:09:21.

she said if it has more than five ingredients, don't go near it. Or if

:09:22.:09:25.

your godparents wouldn't have recognised it, don't eat it. The

:09:26.:09:39.

death of the song, not the story on tiny pets. But Jose Mourinho,

:09:40.:09:43.

potentially going to be the Manchester United boss? He has had a

:09:44.:09:57.

rough season, Louis van Gaal. The club haven't had any silverware for

:09:58.:10:01.

three years. I am a Manchester City fan, but the fact that... If Jose

:10:02.:10:09.

Mourinho is taking over and United still aren't confirming this, it

:10:10.:10:15.

looks like shabby treatment. There has been so much speculation. Every

:10:16.:10:21.

time he goes to press conference, they asked if Jose Mourinho is

:10:22.:10:29.

taking over a. He said that the way he heard was that his wife saw

:10:30.:10:33.

something on the television, gave him a call and alerted him that that

:10:34.:10:40.

could be happening. I think that is shoddy. He did win the FA Cup.

:10:41.:10:46.

Because he was expected to be there three years and it will only be one,

:10:47.:10:53.

he will get a ?5.4 million compensation package. I wouldn't

:10:54.:10:58.

mind managing Manchester United just for six months, if that is the

:10:59.:11:07.

reward. You good job share! I would happily be sacked on that kind of

:11:08.:11:15.

deal. Are you sure we are not going to do the song story? Baby boomers

:11:16.:11:22.

to blame for a lost generation of gardeners. The Royal horticultural

:11:23.:11:27.

Society are concerned about the state of a lot of gardens because

:11:28.:11:32.

children haven't been taught how to garden. Wears see and baby boomers,

:11:33.:11:45.

from the way this story is written, they didn't teach the children how

:11:46.:11:51.

to garden. Also the problem is that more and more people are living in

:11:52.:11:59.

flats. It could be that both parents are working, people are looking for

:12:00.:12:06.

easy gardens. Astroturf instead of real grass. This links in with the

:12:07.:12:12.

story about the food. You need extra time to enjoy the garden and do

:12:13.:12:16.

proper cooking. Hopefully we will get back to a healthier lifestyle, a

:12:17.:12:21.

bit more time in the garden, bringing your begonias -- pruning. I

:12:22.:12:33.

love doing it, I have just put some rhubarb in. Very healthy. Nice to

:12:34.:12:42.

see you both, a pleasure as always.
