First hour: news review: with Metro Mayor Tim Bowles and Green leader Eleanor Combley: Lloyd Roberts from Save Redland Library joins us to discuss. Only 1% responded to the libraries consultation, Westbury and Henleaze Tory people who have plenty of money and spare time responded to keep their own library open. There are schemes which could be use to save seventeen libraries. Surely Marvin should close Tory ward libraries. Fears Government-funded report into library cuts will be ‘buried’ by Bristol City Council. What is going on with the city’s library service? Bristol mayor Marvin Rees' office says he's 'too busy' to come on the show. But we know he isn't because the last time he was booked to come in, then changed his mind at the last minute, he was sitting just outside the studio in the Community Centre waiting to meet some Labour councillors. Eleanor suggests Marvin may simply be avoiding the close questioning he'll get here. What is a Metro Mayor - annual budget is £30 million for infrastructure like rail and housing, Tim's job is vague but seems to be to lure foreign investors into the region - job losses on the horizon at GKN and Airbus - too much 'feudal power' in a mayor - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Labour anti-racism activist Marc Wadsworth expelled from the Labour party for alleged antisemitism, founder of Labour Party Black Sections, former chair of the joint unions chapel at Thames Television - accused by Labour MP Ruth Smeeth of 'using an antisemitic trope' by saying "I saw that the Telegraph handed a copy of a press release to Ruth Smeeth MP, so you can see who's working hand in hand". (Did Marc mean the Labour MP was working with a right wing newspaper, or was he alleging she was part of an a Jewish conspiracy?) Ms Smeeth branded the comments "vile conspiracy theories about Jewish people”. VIDEO OF THE EXCHANGE AT A LABOUR PARTY PRESS CONFERENCE - doesn't the Tory party discriminate against poor people? A city councillor of a minority ethnic background was arrested after going to his local police station to report a crime because officers were searching for a suspect who “looked like” him. Amber Rudd resisted calls to resign as Home Secretary as she faced accusations she misled Parliament. A leaked memo suggested Ms Rudd was aware of Home Office targets for immigration removals - just a day after she told MPs she had not agree to specific targets. Ms Rudd had initially told MPs investigating the Windrush scandal that there were no immigration removal targets. She then said she was not aware of them.
