  5. Sunday lunchtime recap:

    Here are some of the key points from this morning's shows:

    • Scotland's First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, says it would be a "mistake" for David Cameron to hold the EU referendum in June.
    • The SNP leader also said a vote to leave would reignite calls for independence and warned there was "some distance left to travel" before the financial deal underpinning the Scotland Bill is agreed.
    • A former Labour pollster called a report into why Labour lost the 2015 election a "whitewash and a massive missed opportunity".
    • Conservative mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith said he was a "non headbanging Eurosceptic" and said he had not yet decided how to vote in the EU referendum.
  6. How will Tory MPs approach the EU referendum?

    BBC Sunday Politics

    The Sunday Politics panel are talking about how Tory MPs will behave when campaigning gets under way for the EU referendum.

    Beth Rigby, of The Times, says the battle now for the party is what to do with up to a third of the party "who would be minded to leave", while a smaller "core" will vote to leave in any circumstances. Janan Ganesh, of the Financial Times, says the weakness of the Labour Party means Conservative MPs will keep their discipline better than in previous EU splits as they are confident of winning the 2020 general election.

    BBC Sunday Politics

    Diane James and Damian Green

    Talking EU referendum now on the Sunday Politics. Former Conservative Home Office Minister Damian Green says being a member keeps the UK safer. But UKIP's Diane James says the free movement principle means the UK's border controls are not sufficient to keep out would-be terrorists. Mr Green says pulling out of Europe would mean more migrants claiming asylum in Dover rather than being stopped in Calais. Not so, says Ms James, who thinks the current arrangement is because of the "Entente Cordiale" between France and the UK, not the EU.

  11. Corbyn 'must be given a chance'

    BBC Sunday Politics

    People need to get behind Jeremy Corbyn, says Michael Dugher. "He's got to be given a chance because he has got a huge mandate from party members", he says, but he has to show he can convert this into support from the public including Conservative voters.

    BBC Sunday Politics

    Labour MP Michael Dugher, who was sacked by Jeremy Corbyn in his recent reshuffle, says the party has a "massive challenge" at the next election. No political party has a right to exist, he says, but if it stops "picking fights" with itself it can recover from its election defeat.
