Why should anyone trust opinion polls?

Polling companies are there to shape public opinion, not measure it! Britain's biggest pollster YouGov has put out a prediction saying we could be in for a hung parliament, but why should anyone trust what it says? In 2015 the "experts" all predicted a hung parliament, and they were all wrong. Nick Margerrison, standing in for Jon Gaunt, spoke to Joe Twyman, founding director of YouGov, to see if he could convince him that there's any use in opinion polls.

Corbyn could be about to let thousands of unskilled migrants into Britain! The Labour manifesto said it would end EU freedom of movement, but Britain's borders would still be open to cheap migrant labour from around the world. Has Corbyn shot himself in the foot? Nick spoke to Alp Mehmet, vice chair of Migration Watch UK.
