Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: £100 Vouchers To Sort Poor Parents
First up: the £100 vouchers David Cameron hopes can sort out all the struggling mums and dads in the country. In a trial scheme they’ll be handing out the coupons in high street chemists: pick one up and you can trade it for 10 parenting classes. The ConDems hope the pilot will be stigma free - but will those parents who need help get it?

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: How To Fill Olympic Empty Seats?
After which I’m after your ideas on what should be done with any left over Olympic seats. Experts predict there’ll be plenty going begging for volleyball, hockey, canoeing, women’s football and badminton - should organisers hang on for someone to pay for them, slash prices, give them away or leave them empty? Do let us know.

Part 6: Are You A Freak If You Shun Facebook?
Moving on: are you a freak if you shun facebook? Half the population refuses to get on board facebook while more than 80 per cent of Brits reject twitter. And yet newspapers, radio and TV shows are filled with the badly-spelled thoughts of those who do social media. And I wondered if that makes the rest of you, those who don’t tweet or facebook feel a tad excluded?

Part 7: What’s The Point Of Scatter Cushions
And finally in an attempt to find the most seemingly mundane talking point ever: what’s the point of scatter cushions when you have to move them if you want to sit or lie down?
