Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Secure Borders = Long Airport Queues
Are longer queues at airports the price we have to pay for tighter UK borders? Can the Daily Mail complain about immigration delays when it’s been campaigning for tighter security? We put up with long waits getting into the US of A. Why should our airports be any different?

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Stuck In A Class Rut
Is there a lack of social mobility in this country? Its harder to improve your lot here in the UK than anywhere else in the western world. So are you stuck in a class rut? What keeps you there? Is it the system or your own lack of ambition?

Part 6: Litterbug? Shoe Me The Evidence!
We’ll discuss the man accused of littering after someone else’s discarded cigarette butt ended up on the sole of his shoe. He brushed it off as got in his car and ended up with a fine. Is that fair? He thinks it was by the way - I’m not so sure.

Part 7: Leave The Label
Are you one of those types who leaves the labels, protective coverings and warning stickers on everything you buy? Mrs. Wright has left the stickers on her computer proclaiming Intel this and Microsoft that, Eric still has the plastic film on the front of his phone that apple put there. What’s the matter with you people?

    Flooding. The Environment agency and water boards should stop moaning and sort or the misery of millions. We put man on the moon, dig a tunnel from England to France and drill for oil in some of the deepest oceans. Surely it is not beyond the wit f man and technology to drill bire holes to the aquafier layer and take other meausres to capture rain waters before they flod - especially now we know we are having them regularly and WHERE THE RAIN FALLS !! Stop this procrastination and let the fat cats do somehting about it. We have the technology. Regards David
