Discussion on BAe Systems' closure of Bristol's historic Filton airfield and the continuing failure of developers to get planning permission from South Gloucestershire Council to build housing on the old runway. The 'Big Four' 'financial services' firms KPMG, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte & Ernst & Young all subject of Competition Commission's investigation into price fixing and fraud. CC have missed 2 deadlines already for delivering their report on these four powerful companies who signed off bank's accounts as healthy in the run-up to the 2008 crash. Discussed with Old Labour Oxford economist Martin Summers. A 'volunteer' from KPMG has been recruited as advisor to mayor Ferguson. Horse meat being passed off as beef scandal: Horsemeat found at Bradley Stoke meat firm Greencore labelled as beef for human consumption this morning. Environment Secretary Owen Patterson reports to the House of Commons; Stephen Williams in PMQs asks question about Christian Aid event around tax evasion, profit reporting and transparency - only with doubtful political will it ever happen; Gareth Thomas in PMQs: 4000 fewer police on London's streets after the first two years of the Coalition government; Stephen Powell in PMQs on the millionaires tax cut in April he asks Cameron directly whether he benefited personally from this tax break but Prime Minister David Cameron refuses to answer.

Former NHS Chief Executive Gary Walker from Lincolnshire NHS Trust and gagging clauses, NHS culture needs to change, general discussion on gagging clauses; Bristol Port boss David Ord is a Conservative donor and denies directly lobbying the PM against building the Severn barrage; voxpop by Marina Morris on the newly introduced law allowing gay marriage, many Bristolians asked don't think it's a good idea.
