  • What could have happened to Jay Slater?

    24 JUN 2024 · Jay Slater went missing while on holiday on the island of Tenerife last week. The last known contact the 19-year-old had was during a short phone call to a friend, in which he said he had missed a bus trying to get back to his accommodation and so was attempting to walk instead - a journey that would take 11 hours.      Rescue teams including helicopters, rescue dogs and drones have entered the second week of the search, as his family and friends become desperate for answers. What could have happened to him?      On this episode, Niall Paterson learns more about Jay Slater’s story and what might have happened to him from our correspondent Shingi Mararike. Plus, Sue Sim, former chief constable of Northumbria Police, joins Niall to discuss the social media wildfire surrounding the case.  Producer: Emma Rae Woodhouse  Editor: Philly Beaumont

  • Why won't politicians really talk about social care?

    21 JUN 2024 · Four out of five people will need social care before they die - yet it's hardly been mentioned in the election campaign to date.       The architect of the government's delayed social care reforms, Sir Andrew Dilnot, has told Sky News politicians need to "grow up" and tackle the crisis in the sector.       On this episode of the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson is joined by political correspondent Rob Powell to discuss the current state of social care and what political parties are promising to change.       We also hear from Norman Phillips who is a full-time carer for his wife, Ros, who lives with multiple sclerosis and dementia.

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

    12 JUN 2024 · While the Conservatives and Labour battle it out for No10, recent polling reflects a changing mood from the electorate towards the smaller parties.      The latest YouGov poll suggests Reform UK have climbed within one point of the Conservatives, the Lib Dems are up four points, and Labour are dropping below 40%. 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?

    11 JUN 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.    Podcast Producer: Sydney Pead Podcast Promotions Producer: Jada-Kai Meosa John Editor: Philly Beaumont
