Find out why

Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Call Me Fatty: That’s A Hate Crime?
For our first phone in: Should calling someone fatty or even obese be a hate crime? A group of MPs think it is and want appearanced-based discrimination to be outlawed. But however hurtful or upsetting it is to be called fat you can do something about that whereas you can’t change the colour of your skin or your sex.

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Train Kids For Trades At 14?
After that: What do we think about training kids for trades like plumbing at 14? The ConDems are keen to expand the number of technical colleges in England and Wales but is 14 too young to choose a blue collar career?

Part 6: Should Parents Cater For Fussy Kids?
After that: Should parents cater for all the fussy eaters in the family or make one meal for all? One in three Mums are dishing up three different menus at mealtimes. Are they to be envied or are they too soft for their own good?

Part 7: Gullible Fools
And finally: Gullible fools: What nonsense have you been conned into believing by your so-called friends? That sheep’s legs are shorter on one side to help them stand on mountains? That you can buy salt extracted from human tears? That Jeremy Kyle has human parents? If you’re as gullible as I am we’d love to hear from you.
