The Weeks Update: Talking woes for the Labour party and controversy in the mayoral race with Angela Mason & John Weeks
With the local elections just two days away the Labour party could be on track to suffer one of its worst results in opposition for 34 years....according to one of the country's leading polling experts. Professor John Curtice of Strathclyde University believes Labour could lose 170 councillors and control of key local authorities like Redditch and Crawley. It's the latest run of bad news for a party still reeling from claims of anti-Semitism in its ranks. Labour's candidate for Mayor of London, Saddiq Khan, has even warned party leader Jeremy Corbyn that accusations of anti-Semitism will make it more difficult for him to beat his Conservative rival Zac Goldsmith. Could Mr Corbyn's days as leader be numbered, and what last minute actions can the party take to avoid a massacre at the polls? Councillor Angela Mason, Cabinet Member for Children at Camden Council, is in the studio along with Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator.

In recent weeks’ candidates such as the Tory's Zac Goldsmith and Labour's Sadiq Khan, and others, have all been grilled on what they will do for the capital. Their actions and policies can also feed into the rest of the country in terms of wealth and prosperity created. But religious communities also have a stake in the vote and have their own concerns that they have been raising during the campaign period.

Company Casebook

Company Casebook: Cauli Rice
Linda Lewis visits the people behind Cauli Rice an innovative range of low carb, low calory rice made from cauliflower which available in supermarkets. About a year ago Gem Misa was one of the finalists slightly nervously lined up to pitch their business idea to Richard Branson in the annual Virgin competition for start-ups and new businesses. An advertising campaign was part of their prize, Cauli Rice got a lot of media attention. And not long afterwards their innovative range of low carb, low calorie rice made from cauliflower was launched in supermarkets and online. Since then, co-founders Gem Misa and her husband Jamie have raised more investment, won more prizes and are already planning various new flavours and business extras, such as a subscription service for people watching their weight who want their low carbs delivered straight to the door in a regular order. With sales soaring, they've also opened an office in Battersea, South London.
