Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Let Under-13s Use Facebook?
That’s what founder Mark Zuckerberg thinks. He reckons social networking sites are educational. Is he right? If so, do the educational benefits outweigh the risks from online bullying, or sexual predators? Around 40% of nine to 12 year olds already use sites like Bebo, Myspace and Facebook anyway. Should they be allowed to log on legitimately?

We’ll have a word or two on that before we go to these three news sponges for the rest of the day’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Ban Smoking Outdoors?
Then: Should smoking outdoors be banned in the UK? I ask because, as of Monday, New Yorkers caught smoking in outdoor spaces like parks and beaches could be fined $50. Should we do the same here? Or would that be yet another attack on those who enjoy a perfectly legal habit? What do you say?

Part 6: Kids Or Partner: Who Comes First?
After that: Who should come first, your kids or your partner? The daughter of Lord of the Flies author William Golding reckons her mum and dad only had eyes for each other. She says they had no love left for her. Sure, it’s important to keep your romance alive after having kids. But should your other half come first? Should you lavish the same attention on your partner as you do on your kids? You tell me.

Part 7: Great Sex Or A Full Head Of Hair?
And finally: Men - would you rather have a good sex life or a full head of hair? A recent survey says hair just clinches it, but I’m not so sure. Would you baldies out there give up nookie to get your barnet back? And ladies - would you rather your fella had a lion’s mane or was a tiger in the sack?
