PART 1: HELLOS AND MENU


PART 2/3 - BORDER GUARDS OLYMPIC STRIKE - YOUR THOUGHTS
We’ll kick off by getting your thoughts on next week’s strike by border guards. last night the Public and Commercial Services union confirmed their members would walk out on Thursday which some claim will be Heathrow’s busiest day ever. Only one in 10 members took part in the strike ballot over job cuts and pay. Are these border guards taking the michael or seizing the moment to get what they want?

PART 4 - TODAY'S PAPERS

PART 5: ARE MIDDLE-AGED MEN INVISIBLE?
After that I want to know if middle aged men are as invisible as women of certain age? Yesterday we heard how a lot of you girls feel you fade into insignificance after turning 40. Do middle age men fair any better? Women seem to put a lot of store in their sex appeal, men perhaps more so in their jobs. So if the work goes, does everything else follow? Has the age of equality done for the alpha male?

PART 6: DO COOL CLOTHES SPOIL CHILDHOOD?
For our last phone-in of the week: we’re questioning the wisdom of splashing out on designer togs for kids. One, do the cost and delicate fabrics mean children can’t run about as they’re supposed to, and two by spending a fortune on such fripperies are you condeming your sprogs to spend the rest of their lives as slaves to fashion?

PART 7: TALKING TELLY WITH MIKE WARD
And finally: we'll be talking telly with Daily Star critic Mike Ward. What have you got for us this week Mike?

    This shows what most of the people of UK have know for years that are not English, that they are really looked down on if they are not English and they should do as their told and know their place, as soon as Prince Harry and Prince William start singing that song when its played then and only then can anyone in the UK say anything about what another person should sing.

    When England play Wales it's an ENGLISH Anthem. England should have it's own Anthem.
