Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Olympic Strikes
We’ll kick off by hearing your thoughts on Olympic strikes. Union bosses want the world to know everything is far from rosy in the UK right now and this summer’s games would be the perfect place to get that message across. But if unions do a call a strike what kind of support would they get from you? Not very much I’d imagine.

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Kill Unwanted Newborns
Today’s Daily Mail provides our next phone-in: the academics saying doctors should be allowed to kill unwanted newborn babies. It’d be no different from terminating an unwanted pregnancy as the baby has yet to develop a personality. What’s more, killing the tot would be kinder to the mother than seeing it given up for adoption. Will anyone watching today back what these boffins are saying?

Part 6: Put Prisoners To The Front Of Jobs Queue
After that: should we put prisoners to the front of the jobs queue. We heard yesterday our two convicts had landed jobs as binmen ahead of 38 other people without criminal records. While you can’t help but feel sorry for the guys who missed out, if a job stops these villains from burgling your house again, then maybe employers should positively discriminate in favour of all ex cons?

Part 7: Does Female Dr Watson Patronise Women?
And finally: does the decision to cast a woman as Dr Watson in a new Sherlock Holmes adventure patronise women as Lowri was saying yesterday? If women really were men’s equals, why not cast a lady as Sherlock himself? Anything less is just flim flam designed to stop you girls burning your bras, right?
