Maurice Smith on the Scottish Labour parties new manifesto - can they woo back SNP supporters?
Well let's stay with politics and events north of the border where Scotland's Labour party has unveiled its manifesto for the May 5th elections. Party leader Kezia Dugdale said the document was a "return to the party's roots" and that Labour was the only party "offering an alternative to austerity". Yet with the Scottish National Party enjoying a 30 point lead in opinion polls, can the manifesto woo back those Labour supporters who've defected to the nationalists? Juliette Foster is joined on the phone by our man in Scotland Maurice Smith.

What might economic life look like in the event of Brexit? Stephen Booth at Open Europe gives his take
What might economic life outside of the E.U. in the event of Brexit look like? The think tank, Open Europe, says the referendum campaign has not adequately addressed this so far. Open Europe says it will be neither apocalypse nor utopia. They say there will be a short term shock followed by the potential for long term prosperity if liberal economic policies are followed. On the line is Stephen Booth, Co-Director of Open Europe.

The EU referendum: Is the leave campaign ahead in the polls? Fraser Nelson of The Spectator spoke to Share Radio's Robert Van Egghen for more
The latest "poll of polls" for the EU Referendum shows the Remain side's lead is narrowing. The poll by NatCen Social Research shows just 51% of voters want Britain to stay in the EU. But another recent poll by the ORB shows that if only those likely to vote are counted, it is actually the Leave side who are ahead. Earlier Share Radio's Robert Van Egghen spoke to Fraser Nelson, Editor of The Spectator magazine. They began by discussing whether with the more committed supporters the Leave campaign could win the referendum.
