First hour news review: with Conservative Councillor for Bishopsworth Richard Eddy and Labour cabinet member for Housing and Central ward Paul Smith - also former Sunday Times Rich List journalist Kevin Cahill and project director of Stapleton Road's Wild Goose cafe Mike Connelly. Final vote on May’s Brexit deal - MPs voted against: opinions on Brexit votes results; problems with leaving EU; Parties and Country split; ways ahead now; how will Brexit affect poor people?; Brussels and Whitehall bureaucrats compared.Interview with Mick Connelly from The Wild Goose Cafe - a drop in cafe for the homeless and poor: many other services they offer; numbers needing their services going up; supported housing; effects of recent benefit changes; Bristol out reach services; Tory cuts; Crisis Centre Ministries – services they offer; ideology not reality affecting policy making; Tony Benn said some thought it a good idea to have some homeless on the streets – so others will see them and keep in line; different types of homelessness; Universal Credit and benefit sanctions; work not a route out of poverty any more; rich getting richer.Full Council Meeting: the state of the air in Bristol and Stoke Lodge absurdity over 'non-structural' fence – Doctor discusses a ‘clean air zone’ idea and Mayor Marvin retorts how the NHS are contributing to polluting the air! Trying to be clever by arguing the NHS is responsible for a proportion of the very deaths the doctor in front of you fights to prevent is the sort of sophistry I’d expect from a Tory Health Secretary, not a Labour Mayor.; BRI car park plan; congestion charge; Stoke Lodge park dispute – is a fence a structure, Kevin says in law it cannot be. And Mayor’s answer – why is Mayor not sharing legal advice that 'a fence is not a legal structure'? MPs vote to have LGTB lessons for 5 year olds: Mariam Ahmed, who has a four-year-old daughter at the school, told i-paper that it is “absolutely wrong” the lessons are taking place. “My child is four, and I found out that in the No Outsiders programme, she’ll be taught about homosexuality at her age,” she said. “We’re getting children confused. I’m not saying we don’t need to tell our children about it, but we want to tell them when we feel it’s appropriate.” - PMQs Islamaphobic Tory MPs.
