news review with leader of the Conservative group on Bristol City Council and councillor for Stoke Bishop Peter Abraham. Last week's local elections; Nationally the Tories lost 10 local authorities & 273 seats, UKIP picking up much of their vote due to policies on Europe and immigration; cuts and economics - national debt has nearly doubled since Coalition government was elected in 2010. A clip of Jane Taylor from UNITE at last Saturday's May Day Trades Union 'Workers' Day' Rally in Castle Park, Jane proposes more council house building to kick-start the economy and provided much needed housing. Bristol Mayor opens new office space – but according to local housing campaigner Tony Crofts' website 'Speak Truth To Power' we already have 2 million sq. ft., equivalent to 60 acres, of empty office space in Bristol; The Queen's Speech - influence or power? She owns more land than anyone on the planet but still got an extra £5 million pay rise in 2013 – What was NOT in the Queen's Speech was a register of lobbyists, promised by Cameron before and after the general election, discussed; Privatisation of the probation service, national press has come to Bristol to ask why as we have some of the best rates of curbing re-offending; Police said not to be involved in Jimmy Savile case - vox pop by Marina Morris about who is to blame for the Jimmy Savile fiasco, BBC, police or Savile himself? On the release of today's internal report by West Yorkshire police about cosy 'Friday morning club' breakfast meetings between their officers and Britain's worst ever paedophile, Jimmy Savile. The report said 76 crimes involving 68 victims relating to Savile had been committed in the West Yorkshire area, but added that none of the offences had been reported before the former DJ’s death in October 2011. The report also revealed the youngest of those victims was five years old at the time and eight others were aged nine or younger. Victims' lawyer brands temporary Assistant Chief Constable Ingrid Lee's report as 'pathetic' too. Martin reminds us that Savile spent over a decade of New Year's Eves at Chequers with Margaret Thatcher.
