Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Jt Verdict: A Black And White Case?
First up: I’m after your thoughts on the John Terry racism trial that ended with the Chelsea captain being cleared. The judge ended the trial as there was no clear evidence of what Terry said to Anton Ferdinand last October. Begs the question if there was no clear evidence why was the case brought to court? Couldn’t the FA have dealt with the row in-house? Maybe the CPS felt if they didn’t charge Terry they could be accused of being soft on racism?

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Is Clare’s Law Flawed?
After that: Is Clare’s Law flawed? From today you have the right to check up on your partner. Police will have to tell you if your new lover has not just convictions for violence but has ever been accused of wife beating. Doesn’t the latter undermine the golden rule that we’re all innocent until proven otherwise? Also how’s a fella supposed to move on from past mistakes if those past mistakes’ll haunt him forever?

Part 6: Do Kids Need Hugs?
Moving on, as it’s hug your kids day today I want to know if you think kid really need hugs to feel loved? Some psychologists think the benefits of hugs are overstated - an emotional sticking plaster is how they describe them. The critical thing is for your kids to know they’re loved. So are hugs overrated?

Part 7: Neighbour Away? Park In Their Bay!
And finally: If your neighbour’s away would you have the cheek to park in their bay or on their drive? Eric doesn’t see the problem. Do you?
