Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: St Paul’s Protest: Go Before You’re Pushed!
First up: Should the Occupy LSX protesters leave St Paul’s before they’re pushed? They’re being given 48hours notice to move one, though church bigwigs may back down on that later. Some protestors have already quit claiming the 200-tent camp has been taken over by wasters, not campaigners. Meanwhile city bigwigs with their 49 per cent pay rises laugh in demonstrators faces. Has the two-week protest gone sour?

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Mum’s The Word, Bob’s Your Uncle
Then: mum’s the word, bob’s your uncle: a look at the pros and cons of nepotism.
If family connections could give you or your sprogs a leg up in life, should you call on them? Is getting someone to fix you up with work a form of corruption or just the world works? Are those who choose to stand on their own two feet and make their own way in life bonkers?

Part 6: Branson: Give 10% To Charity!
After that: what do you make of Sir Richard Branson’s latest wheeze to persuade 10 per cent of you to give 10 per cent of everything you own to charity? Nice idea - if you’ve got as much cash as Branson has. Or maybe you’re sick of the super-rich urging the rest of us to dig deep when they have so much more?

Part 7: Cgi: Can’t Generate Imagination
And finally: Does anyone else think the acronym CGI stands for can’t generate imagination? Do any of you think the latest digital computerised graphics and animation are spoiling movies? Was the CGI King Kong any better than the original Kong of the 1930s? Can’t wait to hear your views and John’s on that.
