Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Tagging: Game Over?
First up: is it game over for electronic tagging? 60 per cent of criminals with tags to monitor their behaviour break their curfew. They’re not punished, and some even see the tag as a badge of honour. So is it time for a re-think of a scheme that costs £100m a year? True, it’s cheaper than locking people up, but what about the cost to society of the crimes committed by the tagged lags roaming the streets unchecked?

After taking your calls on that it’s over to Katy for the rest of today's headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Are Wind Farm Nimbys Selfish?
After that: are wind farm nimbys selfish? If you’re opposed to having a wind farm on your doorstep are you guilty of putting your own happiness before the needs of the country. We’re running out of fossil fuels - your grandkids might have to live in a world where coal and gas are a precious commodity. So how can you justify not wanting wind turbines in your back yard - when not having them could jeopardise both the planet and your childrens’ futures?

Part 6: Is An Affair Proof Your Husband Loves You?
Then: Is an affair proof your husband loves you? A new book reckons men cheat, not because they don’t love their partners, but because they do. He’s not leaving you, after all, just fulfilling his physical needs elsewhere - and if he still loves you, he’ll come back. Sound absurd to you? If you think there’s something in it, give us a call.

Part 7: Talking Telly With Mike Ward
And finally we'll be talking telly with Daily Star and Daily Express TV critic Mike Ward. What have you got for us this morning Mike?
