Was the Chancellor's u-turn on National Insurance a trust exercise?
To go through all the political headlines this morning, Georgie Frost was joined Josh Lowe from Newsweek. The Chancellor says his u-turn over tax hikes for self-employed people was necessary to maintain voters' trust. Philip Hammond's reversed a National Insurance increase announced in his budget, because it broke a Tory pre-election pledge. Plus the Conservative Party has been fined £70,000 following an investigation into election campaign expenses. The Electoral Commission says there were significant failures by the Party to properly record how much was spent on canvassing. And a far-right party which called for mosques to be closed and the Koran to be banned has failed to win a general election in the Netherlands. Geert Wilders' Party for Freedom came second, winning fewer seats than expected.

What can we expect from the Bank of England's interest rate decision later?
Joining Georgie Frost to discuss the latest market headlines was Share Radio's very own Nigel Cassidy starting with this morning's company announcements. We've heard from Sainsbury's and Eurostar this morning. And we have the Bank of England's interest rate decision later. It will be the last before the UK starts formal proceedings to exit the EU. This comes after the US Federal Reserve raised interest rates on Wednesday by a quarter of a percentage point to 1 per cent. It's the second rise in three months - and only the third-time rates have been put up since the 2008 financial crisis. So what can we expect?

What do young people look for in a job?
Now how important is your pension to you if you're a young worker? Research shows that under-35 year olds are more likely to proiritise flexible working hours and holiday allowance over workplace pension contributions. But is this a generational preference or are auto-enrolment pensions schemes not desirable enough? Our reporter Anviksha Patel spoke to Alistair McQueen, Head of Savings and retirement at Aviva to find out more. Alistair began by explaining Aviva's research.

A rise in interest rates will support regional economies, says the Darlington Building Society
Today at 12pm the Bank of England will be releasing its latest interest rate decision. It's likely that the bank's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) will unanimously vote to hold rates at 0.25% in the face of potential economic upset from Brexit negotiations. Members of the Shadow MPC for the North East are supporting a rise in interest rates, arguing that it would be a positive move at the moment, especially for regional economies. Nigel Cassidy was joined by Christopher White, Financial Director at Darlington Building Society.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte's victory allows the Netherlands, 'not to fall on the wrong side of populism,'
So the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte's defeated a challenge from a far-right group in the country's elections. He's ahead of three other parties including one led by anti-immigration politician Geert Wilders. Speaking after a victory party the Prime minister said: , the [Dutch] people have said no to another country where the domino stone of the wrong side of populism would topple over. Geert Wilders is putting a brave face on coming second. He tweeted that he is proud of the more than one million people who voted for his Party of Freedom (PVV). To give his analysis, Nigel Cassidy was joined by Jeremy Cook, Chief Economist at World First.
