Episode notes

As attention switches to party manifestos this week three people first-hand experience of writing them; Rachel Wolf, who co-wrote the Tory 2019 manifesto, Marc Stears, part of the team who wrote Labour’s 2015 manifesto, and Lord Richard Newby, who wrote the Lib Dems’ in 2017 and chaired this year’s one too, talk about how the documents come together, as well as their impact on campaigns. Also on is PolHome editor Adam Payne and former Conservative special advisor Fred de Fossard to discuss if three weeks out the tories might have already given up on winning, Lucia Hodgson, partner at strategy firm Charlesbye, comes on to discuss some exclusive new polling, Dr Jess Garland from the Electoral Reform Society talks about the looming deadline to register to vote in this election, PolHome reporters Tom Scotson and Zoe Crowther dial in from the campaign trail, and we have the second set of clips from our Election Diaries project in partnership with ThinksInsight.

Presented by Alain Tolhurst, and produced by Lulu Goad, Ewan Cameron and Nick Hilton for Podot.
