The Bigger Picture: The General Election, Keith Vaz and a new speaker
Political commentator Mike Indian looks at how the general election he predicted at the beginning of the year finally came about, at some of the MPs who are standing down (and some who aren't) and at the departure of John Bercow as Speaker. He discusses the suspension of Keith Vaz, the most severe ever that will have no effect thanks to the election. And he looks at which might happen when the country goes to the polls.

Also, how an artificial leaf can make synthetic gas, a car powered by cow dung, the first selfies in space, an ecologically-sound lunchbox, a wallet-sized fork and spoon and how driverless taxis might make the streets of our cities even busier.

This is Money: Does loyalty pay?
What's the difference between loyalty and inertia? Do we get too little reward for the former and show too much of the latter when it comes to shopping and banking? That's the question Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and host Georgie Frost tackle in the podcast this week. It comes as Tesco – one of the original loyalty scheme pioneers – revealed its new paid-for Clubcard Plus, costing £7.99 per month. Meanwhile, Nationwide Building Society has also announced it is scrapping its hugely popular loyalty savings accounts held by 1.6million people. Which are the firms and organisations the team feel some loyalty too - and what are the ones they stick with out of sheer laziness? And with another small energy firm going bust, should we in fact be staying 'loyal' to some of the established giants for peace of mind? Elsewhere, we look at a study comparing the costs of buying and renting a home claiming the former could leave you £350,000 better off: do we finally have conclusive evidence?
