Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Forgive Murdoch, 81, For Retard Comment?
Can we forgive Rupert Murdoch for describing David Cameron’s son Ivan as a retard because he’s 81? Or should the media baron know better? After all his paper The Sun is quick to condemn anyone else who uses the word. I’m certain the billionaire wouldn’t use the N word to describe black people, shouldn’t those with learning difficulties expect the same degree of sensitivity?

We’ll take plenty of calls on that before it’s over to Lisa for the rest of today’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Women: Too Clever For Kids?
Antiques Uncovered star Dr Lucy Worsley claims she’s been educated out of having kids - her massive brain thirsts instead for more exciting activities than nappies and breast feeding like, er, travel and work. Too clever for kids? How does that make you breeders feel? Like a bunch of dimwits?

Part 6: 50 Fags Make You Pack It In?
If ciggies were £50 a pack would that make you pack it in? They’re thinking of charging just that for a pack of 20 in New Zealand where they hope to wipe out smoking by 2025. Could that work here?

Part 7: Which Side Is Your Best Side?
Which side is your best side? Scientists say it’s the left side of your face for reasons I’ll explain later - just wondered if you’d go along with that - not sure I would.

    he described the boy as retarded and did not call him a retard. I can't believe you have the whole basis for your discussion WRONG. Retarded is a technical medical term, retard is disgustingly abusive

    Forgive Murdoch? I would not give him access to our remote control never mind control of a media empire!! Age is no excuse for this kind of comment!! How did he pass the fit and proper ruling when he opened The Sun on Sunday?!?!?
