Part 1 - Hellos

Part 2/3 - Britain: Arm Syrian Rebels?
First up: Should Britain arm the Syrian rebels fighting evil despot Bashar al Assad? Foreign Secretary William Hague says the conflict’s become a catastrophic humanitarian crisis and has pledged to send the rebels armoured vehicles and body armour but with Russia providing Assad with weapons by the truck load shouldn’t we be doing more? Or maybe you feel government cuts have left our military unable to respond?

Part 4 – Today’s Papers

Part 5 - Make Teens Do Hard Labour!
And then we’re gonna hear if any of you feel, like John’s dad, that all teenagers should be made to do some form of hard labour - if only so they work harder at school to avoid spending the rest of their days doing similar low paid work? What do you say?

Part 6 - Ban Chewing Gum?
For our last phone-in of the week: I wanna know what you make of the English city aiming for a Singapore-style total ban on chewing gum. Campaigners in Milton Keynes want shops banned from selling it and locals barred from even chewing the stuff - why? Because cleaning up after them costs this country £150m a year.
