First hour: news review: Conservative councillor for Brislington East Tony Carey – and chief executive of Creative Youth Network – and the Green party’s candidate for mayor Sandy Hoare-Ruthven - Creative Youth Network – what they do; Green Party Conference in Bristol – main issues covered; New figures revealed on news report filmed in Taunton: at least 449 homeless deaths in UK in the last year - homelessness – regulation of letting market; PMQs homelessness – winter hostels, Bristol’s new St. Annes Hostel, new policy of Theresa May’s on social housing, support services cut for complex needs of homeless, austerity, 300,000 migrants a year – where are they living?;  PMQs Universal Credit - Universal Credit: Charities told to sign ‘gagging clauses’ to protect Esther McVey’s reputation via @Welfare_Weekly - Theresa May saying ‘an end to austerity’; Fran Mier, who has cerebral palsy has had her ESA confirmed after assessment, then stopped three days later; bail out of banks in 2008; PMQs why have bankers responsible for 2008 bank crisis not been brought to account? New regulations, fines; Bristol Council run as a business: Plans to make Bristol City Council 'more business-like'; Piecemeal ideas, such as putting advertising in Bristol parks , will be brought under one banner with the help of Penny Fell, who as of August is the council’s new director of commercialisation. In a report, she said the "council has no widely understood meaning of the term ‘commercialisation’", before drafting her own definition: “Bristol City Council will achieve efficiency savings and income growth by developing, implementing and evaluating commercial objectives and activities in a more business-like way”. Some of this new approach may have been seen in a deeply unpopular decision by the council not to renew the lease for Ashton Court miniature railway on the grounds the land could make more money turned over to other uses. PMQs Corbyn – Education – pay cuts for teachers; Mervyn King says 2008 financial crisis was not Labours fault: Labour not responsible for crash, says former Bank of England governor. Mervyn King says there was shared intellectual responsibility across political parties for failing to foresee problems – was an international crisis.
