Part 1 - Hellos

Part 2/3 - HS2 BE OR NOT 2 BE?
The Institute of Economic Affairs thinks we should scrap the proposed high-speed rail link between London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds. It says it will cost £80bn - double the government estimate and end up costing the taxpayer a fortune. But its supporters say it’ll slash travel times, boost the economy, reduce congestion and create jobs. Is high-speed rail essential for us to remain competitive?

Part 4 - Todays Papers

Part 5 - REDUCE VOTING AGE TO 16?
Should the UK reduce the voting age to 16? Ed Miliband’s election guru Sadiq Khan MP thinks we should. He says it’s bizarre teens can pay tax, have sex, get married and sign up to defend their country - but not have a say in how it’s run. Scottish 16 year-olds, of course, will get a say on independence. But do you really have enough life experience at 16 to make a responsible political choice?

Part 6 - WHY TAKE YOUR OWN FOOD ON HOLIDAY?
One in three of us are packing our cases with food from home when we fly off abroad. Tea bags, cereals, chocolate and crisps are the most popular. Do you do it? What tasty treat can you not do without in your holibags?

Part 7 - SHOULD YOU TEACH YOUR KIDS TO FIGHT?
Should you teach your kids to fight? Experts say martial arts, boxing or other self-defence classes teach kids discipline, confidence and keep them physically fit. But will it also make them more likely to get into scraps?
