UKIP are WIPED OUT in local elections!

UKIP have lost all of their local councillors who were standing in yesterday's elections, and now, just two years after the party's record-breaking 2015 election performance, it looks like the party is facing a wipeout next month. Where the hell do they go from here? I spoke to the party's local government spokesman Peter Reeve.

With a colourful character like Donald Trump in the White House, and bed-wetting liberals destroying college campuses, surely this is a golden age for satire? To find out, I spoke to top US comedian and satirist, Will Durst.

France goes to the polls this weekend, with centrist Emmanuel Macron still enjoying a healthy lead over the Front National's Marine Le Pen, but the gap is narrowing. Whatever the outcome, is this election a hammer blow for the EU, and will European politics ever be the same again? I spoke to Peter Foster, Europe Editor of the Daily Telegraph.

I agree with Gordon. Why can't Scots recognise that they have more in common with the English brexit communities - one layer of Gov down - 2 to go.

From my point of view here in Scotland, I'm just delighted that Krankie's lot have lost control of their only council and are down 7 seats. Hopefully it's a sign of slight decline of the SNP and we can put to bed this ridiculous and devisive second independence referendum!
