Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Who’d Trust Mps To Sort Banking Scandal?
First up we’re going to find out if Ed Miliband was right when he said yesterday that you, the great British public, won’t trust politicians to iron out sharp practices by our friends the bankers. The PM favours just such a quick fix but the Labour leader says we want a full independent inquiry. Do we?

We’ll take plenty of calls before it’s over to Eve for the rest of today’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Airport Bomb Hoax - Should Judges See Joke?
After that: we’ll get your thoughts on the comics urging appeal court judges to recognise that a man fined for tweeting that he was going to blow up Nottingham’s Robin Hood airport was clearly joking. Al Murray and Stephen Fry want the man’s conviction overturned. They say he’s a victim of over-zealous, paranoid anti-terror officials, that free speech is under threat. Well what do you say?

Part 6: I Wouldn’t Leave The Kids With My Parents
After your calls on that I want to know if any of you feel the same as Peter Phillips, Princess Anne’s son by Captain Mark Phillips, who says he wouldn’t leave his two sprogs with granddad because he’s rubbish with kids - something Captain Phillips accepts. But surely even an easily distract, rubbish grandparent deserves some time alone with the sprogs? Whaddayasay?

Part 7: Exes At Wedding?
And finally: What’s the policy when it comes to exes at weddings? Is there something weird about the bride or groom wanting an ex lover to watch them walk down the aisle? What if your future spouse hates the idea? Whose wishes should get priority?
