Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Mitchell And Pleb
Mitchell and pleb is the subject of our first phone in. Should David Cameron fire his chief whip after Andrew Mitchell called a couple of coppers effin plebs? Five days the row has rumbled on with Mitchell first denying everything; 24 hours later he fessed to swearing but not the pleb insult. Police notes suggest otherwise, though. Labour and the rossers want the PM to act. Should he?

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Fool Not To Keep Weapon At Home?
After that: Are you a fool not to keep a weapon at home? A new study suggests one in four of us has a baseball bat, knife or club ready to use against intruders. Tory MP David Davis famously called for homeowners to be allowed to use tasers as he thought it was unfair they should take on burglars with their bare hands. Is it? Or do you side with police who say you’re more likely to end up hurt by confronting an intruder.

Part 6: Who Likes Looks More?
Then: Who likes looks more, men or women? Studies show men tend to put looks ahead of personality and status, women say they do the opposite. But are they telling the truth? Are women less fussy when seeking a mate? And is it shallow to pick a partner just because they’re good looking.

Part 7: Time For Girls To Pick Up The Bill!
And finally: Is it time you girls picked up the bill for dinner? For the first time a majority of men think the bill should be split equally on a first date, and another one in five reckon you should at least pay for drinks. But would you be more likely to give a fellas a second date if he paid for the lot? Psychologists say you would.
