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.

The Weeks Update

The Weeks Update: Featuring Professor Ozlem Onaran, Dr. Giovanni Cozzi & Professor John Weeks
This week experts from Greenwich University's Political Economy Research Centre will publish a report which include proposals to strengthen trade unions and increase the statutory minimum wage in Britain and Europe. Similar themes will be addressed in May when a conference hosted by the University, will argue the case for raising public and private investment to stop Europe lagging behind the US and Japanese economies. The reports are published as the debate over the UK's position in Europe gathers more heat in the run up to June's referrendum, and as questions are raised about the future of think tanks like the "Political Economy Research Centre", which get some or all of their funding from Europe. What future do they have if Britain leaves the EU and what could happen to their research? In the studio are Professor Ozlem Onaran and Doctor Giovanni Cozzi, from the Political Economy Research Centre, and Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator.

The Book Review: Jez Rose's 'Flip The Switch: Achieve Extraordinary Things with Simple Changes to How You Think'
Have you ever wondered why some people get what they want while others have to struggle? Are they phenomenally talented or do they have the knack of being in the right place at the right time for good things to happen? Surprisingly luck - and to a certain extent talent - don't have much to do with it. How far you go in life and whether you achieve your potential, depends on how you think and approach situations. So how easy is it to change the thought and behaviour patterns inherited from childhood, into something positive and beneficial? According to Jez Rose, an author and award winning behaviour specialist, anyone can do it....just as long as you follow a few rules outlined in his new book "Flip The Switch". Jez Rose joins Juliette Foster to discuss the book in more detail.

Edward Smith of Rathbones talks myths around Brexit debate from a new report
Investment Perspectives: What is fact and what is fiction? That question has never been more pertinent as the UK weighs up the arguments ahead of the In/Out referendum on June 23rd. Rathbones, the UK provider of personalised investment management and wealth management services, has published a new report that specifically looks to address five myths around key areas of the Brexit debate: immigration, trade, financials, public finance, and foreign investment. Share Radio's Michael Considine discussed some of them with Ed Smith, Asset Allocation Strategist at Rathbones and began by asking him whether the arguments against immigration stood up to investigation.
