Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Let Abortion Clinics Advertise On Telly
We’re going to kick off proceedings by asking if commercial abortion clinics should be allowed to advertise their wares on the telly? Charitable clinics already can, though thousands complain whenever they do. Now advertising watchdogs want to clear the way so profit-making clinics can flog their wares on TV and radio too. Why not? It’s not like they’re doing anything illegal, right?

We’ll hear what you have to say about that before it’s over to Marcus for the rest of the day’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Bum Notes In Community Opera Row
Then: we’re going to find out what you think of the community opera project which has been left in tatters after primary school staff objected to the inclusion of a gay character which they claim is age inappropriate. Is it? Or is this homophobia via the back door - pun intended - when same sex relationships are discussed in primary schools these days?

Part 6: Good To Boast!
After that: is it good to boast? Jeremy Paxman seems to think it is - certainly as far as your educational achievements go. Surely it all depends on who you’re talking to and the way you blow your own trumpet? No body likes a bragger do they? Do you encourage your kids to big themselves up?

Part 7: Peeling Off In Parks
And finally peeling off in parks. Yes, it’s my annual what-the-hell-do-they-think they’re doing lying in their bra and knickers in the middle of a city park rant. But seriously: what the hell do you think you’re doing?
