First hour news review: with SW England Brexit party MEP Ann Widdecombe and Conservative councillor for Westbury-on-Trym and Henleaze Geoff Gollop. Ann Widdecombe, MEP South West Brexit Party, discusses her time in politics and Brexit: things she wanted to achieve in politics and couldn’t;  why she joined the Brexit Party;  EU rules helping us;  what it’s like working in EU; are we going to leave with a No Deal? Michael Gove, the No Deal Brexit Minister, discusses how No Deal Brexit will be OK; problems with No Deal Brexit; Guy Verhofstadt, Chief Brexit Representative for European Parliament, saying an EU army is necessary; Brexit affecting the Pound and economy –  fragility of banking system – Euro not stable; how leaving EU could work – backstop. External auditors concerned with £98,000 pay off of ex Bristol Council Chief Exec, Anna Klonowski; problems with the Mayoral system;  Mayor Marvin Rees excluding councillors from meetings; Leader of Labour Group, Marge Hickman, discusses £29m shortfall in Bristol Council, from when Geoff Gollop was in charge of accounts;  austerity and Local Government cuts. “It wouldn’t normally be the case at the scrutiny committee a year after this started with us asking ‘where’s the brief, why can’t we see the brief?’ “In this case, all we keep hearing is the mayor has an amazing idea and then we have to keep dragging out the information.” Joanna Booth, Journalist, discusses the proposed Weston Harbour development and how local residents and local Councillors haven’t been informed on what is going on. Secrecy, the Western Harbour, transport, and billions in development. Smacking children to be a criminal offence in Scotland and Wales.
