Consumer news with Winifred Robinson. The three main parties debate energy policy post election; what are their plans for renewables, energy security and regulation and what will it mean for our bills? Should we just give money to the poor in developing countries and do away with complicated aid packages; a new book says we should because evidence suggests they won't waste it and know what they want better than we do. Also, next month Marks and Spencer gets a new man at the top; what does he have to do to return the iconic high street store to its glory days?
