The strange death of Labour Scotland – video

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

John Harris visits Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill, once the safest seat in Britain, but now within the SNP’s sights. The veteran Labour MP Tom Clarke says he’s confident he can hold on. But his SNP challenger Phil Boswell says Labour has stopped representing the workers, and fancies his chances. It’s tense, and messy.

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

Since February, John Harris and John Domokos have been travelling around the country, avoiding the media pack, taking the political temperature … and making a series of videos about this unpredictable, unprecedented election. Where do you think they should go for the penultimate instalment? They want somewhere that might highlight the likely final result, and where it’s all kicking off a bit (but note: they will be in Scotland for a final video around polling day, so England and Wales only, this time).

Friday, April 24th, 2015

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

The Green party thinks Bristol West could deliver its second seat in parliament – but to achieve that, they will have to reach way beyond their bohemian comfort zone into the city’s more deprived areas. John Harris joins the party faithful as they canvass high-rise estates and aim for working-class and ethnic minority votes, while trying to lay to rest Natalie Bennett’s ‘brain fade’ and sound a loud message of hope Continue reading…

Election 2015: Cleggy Cleggy Cleggy, out out out? – video

Friday, April 17th, 2015

John Harris meets Nick Clegg in the Liberal Democrat leader’s seat of Sheffield Hallam, and witnesses a surreal political battle. Local students are furious at the Lib Dems over their broken promise on tuition fees; Labour claim to be on the march; and Clegg is accused of ducking public debate. One big question hangs over everything: could the deputy prime minister lose his seat? Continue reading…
