Comment

Party leaders marked ‘World Poverty Day’ yesterday, but the issues are likley to disappear until the TV debate on Thursday, which will focus on foreign policy.

Dealing with ongoing air chaos is likely to dominate the news agenda.

Every day, Ekklesia will be setting out the election 'agenda' giving a slightly different take, in line with our 'ethics election' initiative. This will include highlighting what smaller parties are doing, some voices which are not being heard, and some issues which are not being highlighted. We will also draw attention to the values underlying the various positions. Check back as this is updated during the day
