The Last Word

In this week's Last Word - a unique assessment of Margaret Thatcher from a former Kent MP who knew her well, because he dated her daughter for many years. The Conservative experiment to get more people involved in local politics.

And energy prices - which political party has the best formula to stop the ever-rising tariffs? Candidates from three main parties - Clarence Mitchell in Brighton Pavilion, Tanmanjeet Dhesi from Gravesham, and Vikki Slade in Mid-Dorset and Poole North will debate all that and more.

And - oh yes : why on earth is a teacher from Brighton knitting pincushions to look like Michael Gove?
