Parts 2 & 3: Arm The Police!
First up: Is time to arm every police officer in the country? That’s what people asking after the brutal and cold-blooded murder of two policewomen yesterday. And yet both Manchester’s chief constable and members of the Police Federation have said they don’t want British coppers to go down that route. Would arming the police affect their relationship with you? Would it lead to even more cops being killed?

We’ll take plenty of calls on that, then it’s over to Lemar for the rest of today’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Badger Cull: Your Thoughts
After that we’re going to have another look at culling badgers to prevent the spread of bovine tb. The ConDems have given the green light for farmers to shoot as many 100,000 badgers. Why when scientists can’t agree if a cull would work. Animal charities believe vaccination is the key. Could farmers do more to reduce their herds’ exposure to the bacteria?

Part 6: Football: Life Ban For Bad Taste Chants?
After that: Should the FA slap lifetime bans on any fans caught shouting bad taste chants at matches? That’s what one soccer legend is calling for after Man U fans mocked the Hillsborough tragedy at a game last weekend. But is that a realistic goal? Where do you draw the line between what’s offensive and what’s risqué?

Part 7: So When Are You Having A Baby?
And finally: So, when are you having a baby? Does every new couple get asked that by relatives? Is it that the kind of question that makes you want to clutter up the planet with little consumers or reach for the condoms? Did you, do you resent being pressured to start a family?
