TUSC Mersey metro-mayoral candidate Roger Bannister debated in the studio with other candidates on the BBC's Sunday Politics North West programme (30 April). In the short time he was given, Roger explained that membership of the EU has not protected workers' rights but had led to 'a race to the bottom' in wages and conditions.

He highlighted the chronic deindustrialisation over decades in Merseyside, as well as underinvestment in the region's infrastructure due to government cuts. Roger also exposed the Ukip candidate's divisive education policy of wanting to bring back secondary modern and grammar schools.
