Monday 8pm – 8.30pm, Channel 4

The leadership debate is simply the public facing issues plaguing the party, behind the scenes there is far more to be tackled. Channel 4 political news editor Gary Gibbon investigates the issues and questions whether the party has the right priorities, and if the leadership campaign is as transparent as it should be.
