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.
