Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, on the program today.
Q Is it true to say that no one should be a billionaire?
A We need to attack the level of informal inequality through a fair tax system.
Q How flat should society be?
Many of us will think that there are 150 billionaires on the one hand, and on the other hand that they are lining up in the food banks and this is not fair.
Justice minister Robert Buckland refused to give MPs a free vote on overthrowing the foxhunting ban if the Conservatives won the majority in the general elections.
The controversial proposal made by former prime minister Theresa May in the 2017 Tory manifesto fell sharply after her low performance in the election. Buckland told Sky News that he thought it was impossible for Boris Johnson to portray the controversial issue.
Foxhunting was banned in 2004 by the laws of the Blair government.
I don't see a turn to that. I think the agenda continued. We are now talking about strong animal welfare measures in our own policies. We are investigating issues such as live transportation. We are dealing with cup hunting and keeping primates as pets.
Johnson added that he believes that there is “originality da in environmental issues, which is an işaret important sign in of his leadership.
Lib Dem justice spokesman Phillip Lee runs media tours this morning. He told his program today that the staff crisis in the NHS will worsen if Brexit continues (quotes from PA Media).
We see that there is a clear staff crisis in the NHS, which is exacerbated by the Brexit expectation. From my own professional experience, I have met many doctors over the years who have been trained in the EU and indeed nursing staff, and I think that if we continue to Brexit, the staff crisis will get worse.
So, by investing in additional money, staying within the EU, the Liberal Democrats will protect the NHS.
Lib Dems says that if they gain power, they will increase the NHS by raising the income tax in a penny. Lee said he asked about the possibility of winning Lib Dems:
The fact that we are 20 deputies and that we come to 326 is actually a goal. We will move to the other side of the election, and if the Conservatives are not the majority, there will be discussions, but we will accept and vote on everything as it is, and we will not put Jeremy Corbyn at number 10…
We have the option of not placing either of the two prime ministers on number 10, so we think that the public should be offered more proposals on who should be prime minister.

Shadow justice secretary Robert Buckland was briefed on Prince Andrew on BBC Radio 4 Today. He said it was inappropriate for him to comment.

When I return to the election debate tonight, Nicola Sturgeon and Jo Swinson have lost their offer to join ITV's program tonight, but there will be other discussions later in the campaign.

Away from main parties:

Here's what the Guardian commentators have to say:
Two other stories you might get stuck with to start your election day:
Tories will appeal to laws and orders today as it promises that adults (over 21) who commit a predetermined murder (under 16) will be sentenced to a more severe life sentence without parole. The existing rules require that the murder be more than one child or be sexually or sadistly motivated.
Justice secretary Robert Buckland said the murdered children had a goal of preventing parents' killers from seeing the is disturbing ”demonstration marching freely.
The focus of today's labor will be to surprise Boris Johnson about what Tories calls a billions of pounds tax refund. Shadow chancellor John McDonnell will speak at a campaign event in central London where Workers intends to yazmak rewrite the rules of our economy ”. The party, which claims 48 billion out of the country's 48 billion, has donated its analysis to the Tories since 2005, while the government would give £ 100 billion in tax relief and other gift-giving transactions by 2023-24.
Bir Someone with a national minimum wage would have to work 69,000 years to pay £ 1 billion, and a newly qualified nurse would have to wait 50,000 years. Nobody will need or deserve that much money. Obscene, ”he will tell his audience that Boris Johnson is on the side of“ billionaires, bankers and big businesses ”.

First and foremost, the NHS bosses made a dramatic intervention in the campaign; Nine out of 10 people say the staff crisis puts patients at risk. Almost 60% believe that this winter will be the most difficult to serve.
The Tory campaign can frighten horses when the growing crisis in healthcare is concerned that the party is at risk of destroying the Brexit-dominated campaign.
Lib Dem & # 39; s policy commitment is unlikely to be helped today, adding a penny to the basic income tax over the next five years, adding an additional £ 35 billion for health and social care. In the third place of the Tories, the NHS committed to spend £ 140.3 billion on the NHS in 2023-24, while Lib Dems stood at £ 142.2 billion and the Labor was cut by £ 143.5 billion.
