    • The Conservatives are seeking to focus on Brexit again, with David Davis accusing Labour of having a "naive" view of the EU's approach and saying his party has a "detailed" plan.
    • Labour is concentrating on its plan to extend childcare provision in England, as shadow education secretary Angela Rayner accuses Theresa May of "ideological attacks" on education and health services

  4. Two views on Jeremy Corbyn's performance

    Today Programme

    BBC Radio 4

    Former Labour spinner Tom Baldwin says Jeremy Corbyn is "incredibly comfortable in his own skin".

    "I think things bounce off him," he says, and argues that Jeremy Paxman got it "slightly wrong" and should have asked the Labour leader about what he would do in the future, not about his long-held beliefs.

    Craig Oliver, former Tory communications chief, says "the reality is that if nobody thinks you are going to be prime minister, the pressure is off."

    "It's a much easier game to play," he says, adding: "If you're ahead, you're more likely to be defensive."

  5. Corbyn win or no-score draw?

    Today Programme

    BBC Radio 4

    Tom Baldwin, Labour's former communication director under Ed Miliband, says there wasn't a single moment that stood out for Jeremy Corbyn, high or low, at the TV debate.

    "Overall he did very well... he won last night's debate," he argues, but there wasn't a single "take-away moment" of victory that'll be played again and again either.

    Craig Oliver, former spin doctor for David Cameron, thinks Theresa May did well on Brexit and had the audience cheering along with her, but she had difficult moments on public services.

    "There was a little bit of heckling and that's not great", but he thinks overall it was a no-score draw.

  6. Davis says the UK government is not seeking a fight

    Today Programme

    BBC Radio 4

    David Davis recalls a row over conflicting reports of a Downing Street dinner with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker as an example of the UK government's negotiating style.

    Ultimately, he claims, EU officials "backed off" and said that "Theresa May is a very good negotiator".

    He tells Today: "We didn't escalate the fight. We didn't go in for a tit-for-tat but at one point or other, we drew the line."

    The Brexit secretary insists that the government's aims for negotiations are clear: "What we're after is a free trade agreement with an associated customs agreement.

    Quote Message: What we're after is a tariff-free arrangement, that's the aim, but if we can't have one then we will have to design our strategy accordingly, which is why we've said: no deal is better than a bad deal."

    David Davis

    Brexit Secretary David Davis tells Today that "polls are very unreliable" after recent election polling show Labour cutting the Conservatives' lead.

    Responding to Angela Rayner's comment that "Brexit is happening", Mr Davis says the real question is "how it happens".

    He says: "A successful Brexit will give you the scope for a successful economic strategy, which will then give you the money to pay for good public services."

    Mr Davis tells Today Ms Rayner set out "an incredibly naive view of how the Europeans are going to play this".

    "We’re going to have to be quite tough with them I’m afraid," he adds.

  10. What might 'no deal' look like?


    Theresa May has insisted that "no deal is better than a bad deal" when it comes to Brexit. Angela Rayner disputed this on Today, arguing that "no deal is a bad deal".

    But what might "no deal" look like? Some helpful colleagues have attempted to thrash it out - looking at issues like money, borders, red tape, and the rights of expats and holidaymakers.

  11. Shadow education secretary says childcare policy will 'pay for itself'

    Today Programme

    BBC Radio 4

    Angela Rayner turns to Labour's plan to extend free childcare provision to all two to four-year-olds in England.

    She describes "£2.7bn of capital investment over the Parliament" to create more places, and "a further £4.8bn a year to bring in the extended free childcare offer, and half a billion to reverse the damaging cuts that have already taken place to our flagship Sure Start centre programme".

    Ms Rayner argues that the system would allow more women to enter the workplace and "GDP could go up by as much as 10% - so it will pay for itself".

    She adds: "It will transform Britain. It has a massive net benefit."

  12. May 'making us look like ogres across Europe'

    Today Programme

    BBC Radio 4

    Angela Rayner

    Shadow education secretary Angela Rayner tells Today that Labour wants to focus on the domestic agenda, while Theresa May just repeats that "Brexit means Brexit".

    "The world is moving on," Ms Rayner says. "We know that Brexit is happening."

    She claims that Mrs May called an election in the hope of securing a big majority in order to continue "ideological attacks on our education and health service... That's why we're talking about the domestic agenda".

    However, Ms Rayner does have time to attack the PM's approach to Brexit:

    "Saying you're going to be a bloody difficult woman right at the start of negotiations tends to make sure that do get a bad deal," she says.

    Quote Message: Negotiation is a dialogue between two parties and unfortunately, Theresa May, in the way she's handled it, has made us look like ogres across Europe."
