Sharp End 24th March

Tonight’s Sharp End is the last one until after May’s Assembly Election.

Next week we start a series of in-depth interviews with the party leaders called Wales Decides 2011: Face to Face.  First up is Kirsty Williams, the leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats.

In subsequent weeks, she’ll be followed by the Conservatives’ Nick Bourne, Plaid Cymru’s Ieuan Wyn Jones and Labour’s Carwyn Jones.

There’ll be election talk in tonight’s Sharp End too. Last week I talked to senior Labour and Conservative politicians about their approach to the forthcoming election.

Tonight Plaid’s Deputy Leader Helen Mary Jones tells me about the rocky road to separation for her party and its coalition partner, Labour, as well as speculating about possible future coalition partners.

Meanwhile I’ve been asking the Liberal Democrat AM, Peter Black, how his party here in Wales might be affected by the unpopularity of the party at a UK level.

I’ll be talking too about this week’s budget and the potential impact on Wales with my guests who this week are: Labour AM Alun Davies; Conservative Assembly candidate Suzy Davies and Steve Theaker, senior partner at the accountancy firm UHY Peacheys.

Now as well as being a financial whizz, Steve has a hidden talent which will also be on display. He’s the Singing Accountant who’s garnered a cult following in the business world for his budget-themed songs.

He’ll be singing his latest opus in tonight’s Sharp End. 1035 ITV1 Wales.
