General election: Court rejects Lib Dem and SNP bid to join Johnson and Corbyn in ITV debate – live news

Liberal Democrats and Scottish National party fail in attempt to be included in ITV debate after PM vows to end plan to cut corporation tax. Follow the latest developments, live

The SNP has said the high court decision allowing ITV to go ahead with an election leaders’ debate excluding Nicola Sturgeon means that Scottish voters are being treated as “second-class citizens”. This is from Ian Blackford, the party’s leader at Westminster.

This election is a chance for people in Scotland to vote to escape Brexit, to protect the NHS and to choose their own future with independence – yet they will not hear that argument in the debate tomorrow night.

Instead, they will only hear from the leaders of two parties who both want to pursue Brexit - taking Scotland out of the EU against its will – who want to lock Scotland into the union.

A Labour government would launch an investigation into British colonialism and its legacy today, the party’s election manifesto is expected to declare, according to this HuffPost UK story by Paul Waugh.

House investigating whether Trump lied to Robert Mueller – live

House tells federal court it is investigating whether Trump lied: ‘Was the president not truthful in his responses to the Mueller investigation?’

According to a new poll, 70% of Americans believe Trump’s alleged efforts to have Ukraine investigate his political rival, Joe Biden, were wrong.

The ABC News/Ipsos poll found that 51% of Americans think Trump should be impeached and removed from office. Another 19% say Trump’s actions were wrong but that he should not be removed from office, and 25% believe the president did nothing wrong.

Lawyers for the House suggested in a previous court filing that the grand jury material from Robert Mueller’s investigation could help them determine whether Trump was truthful in his answers to the special counsel.

“Not only could those materials demonstrate the president’s motives for obstructing the special counsel’s investigation, they also could reveal that Trump was aware of his campaign’s contacts with WikiLeaks,” the lawyer’s wrote in the late September filing.
