Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Olympic Bonuses For Bus Drivers
For our first phone in: the on going saga of Olympic bonuses, this time for bus drivers. Cash bonuses worth up to £2,500 have already been promised to Docklands Light Railway workers, overground rail workers are getting £600 and now bus drivers want £500 to compensate for the extra stress Olympic passengers are going to cause. Am I the only who thinks these people are having a laugh?

We’ll take plenty of your calls on that before Toby leads us through the rest of the day’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Confront Litterbugs? No Thank You!
After that I want to know what you think of Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman urging us to confront litterbugs. While the idea of citizens addressing anti social behavior is laudable what if you end up getting stabbed to death for your trouble. It’s happened before and will no doubt happen again.

Part 6: Lateness = Lack Of Respect?
For our last phone-in we’re asking if turning up late is the ultimate sign of disrespect the irony being this debate is 24 hours late as we were supposed to hold it yesterday. As I said then: if the queen wanted to meet you you'd be there nice and early wouldn't you, so why not show the same respect to you friends, family and colleagues?

Part 7: Talking Telly With Kevin O’sullivan
And finally: we'll be talking telly with Daily Mirror critic Kevin O’Sullivan.
