Poll suggests record Tory slump - what could change in two weeks?

6/19/2024
Sky News has partnered with YouGov for the general election campaign and today the second of their three MRP polling projections is out.

On this episode, Niall Paterson analyses the implications of today’s poll with our deputy political editor Sam Coates. Plus, Sky’s political correspondent Tamara Cohen joins us from Edinburgh where she was at the launch of the SNP manifesto.

'We need to have an adult conversation about migration'

6/18/2024
More people in the UK think immigration has a negative impact on society than a positive one, according to a YouGov survey for Sky News.

Both the Conservatives and Labour are placing promises to tackle illegal boat crossings high on their list of promises if they get into Number 10. So what do voters think about immigration and how could it affect these elections? Host Niall Paterson is joined by Sky News’ community correspondent, Becky Johnson, who’s been speaking to voters in Swindon about their views. Plus, economics and data editor Ed Conway digs into the statistics to reveal exactly how big an impact migration, both legal and illegal, has on the UK.

Is bigger always better? Why smaller parties are having a good election

6/12/2024
While the Conservatives and Labour battle it out for No10, recent polling reflects a changing mood from the electorate towards the smaller parties.

In 2017, the two big parties got 82% of the vote. Now, the combined Labour-Tory vote could be as low as 56%. With the Green Party launching its manifesto today, on this episode of the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson and our deputy political editor Sam Coates dive into the dissatisfaction with Sunak and Starmer. Plus, Scarlett Maguire, pollster with JL Partners, discusses how well the smaller parties are doing. Producer: Sydney Pead Editor: Wendy Parker

Can the Conservative Party manifesto revive Sunak's campaign?

6/11/2024
Rishi Sunak has launched the Conservative's election manifesto, promising to slash taxes in a bid to revive the party's floundering campaign. In his address at the home of the British Grand Prix, the prime minister pledged £17bn in tax cuts including lowering national insurance by 2p, scrapping it entirely for the self-employed and stopping state pensions being taxed with "triple lock plus" - which the party said would all be paid for with £12bn in cuts to the civil service and welfare. But will it be enough to turn around the fortunes of the Conservatives? Today on the Daily, Niall Paterson crunches the numbers with Sky's economics and data editor Ed Conway and political communications strategist Jo Tanner unpicks what the Tories are trying to do with this manifesto. Plus, Sky News' political correspondent Darren McCaffrey on if it will shift the dial for the election.

Man City v The Premier League

6/5/2024
Manchester City – a Premier League club with deep pockets thanks to its Abu Dhabi owners – is taking the league to court. It’s over the current Associated Party Transaction (APT) rules which determine whether sponsorship deals are financially ‘fair’ and require independent valuation for such deals. The rules aim to prevent clubs from inflating sponsorship deals with companies linked to their owners, ensuring fair competition. Man City claim the rules restrict their ability to raise revenue, are unlawful and discriminatory. They argue that sponsors, like those with ties to their Abu Dhabi ownership, should have free rein to set sponsorship prices. Niall Paterson is joined by our business correspondent Paul Kelso to explain City’s legal action, and the potential repercussions for the Premier League.
