The Polling Station is a new podcast of around 5 minutes in duration which we hope will come out every day between now and the election.
We will do short informative little pieces on the election matters that are being missed, evaded, obfuscated or terminalogically inexactituded in the normal election coverage.
This is the 2nd episode, you can find the others here.
This time we spoke of the rather rough day that Jim Murphy's had yesterday, mostly caused by this quote from Chuka Ummuna...
"The leader of the Scottish Labour Party will not be in charge of the UK budget. The leader of our country, our next prime minister, Ed Miliband, will be in charge of the UK budget and he has just answered the question, when that was put to him - will there be any cuts over the course of this parliament not just in the first financial year, but in the following financial years? And he was absolutely clear - there will be the need for further consolidation and cuts throughout the rest of the parliament."
So was Jim hung out to dry or was it just the head office getting the branch manager back in line?
We also talked about the idea of No Detriment and the fact that the Independent ex UK nation of Ireland seems to be doing rather well at the moment.
Hope you enjoy…
