The Wright Stuff

Lively magazine show in which Matthew Wright and this weeks panelists Gareth Thomas and Tracy-Ann Oberman discuss the topical issues of the day with todays guest, actor Michael Praed, who will be discussing his new play 'Dangerous Corner'.

Todays topics:
OSBORNE: BASH POOR FOR FIVE YEARS MORE?
First up we'll hear what you make of George Osborne's plans to keep squeezing the poorest people in the country if voters give the Tories five years more next May. 10m households will be hundreds of pounds worse off as the chancellor seeks to slash another £13bn from welfare budgets to close the deficit. Having endured four years of pain already who's going to vote for more?
PARTNER'S RIGHT TO KEEP PAST PRIVATE?
After that: does your partner have the right to keep their past private: old relationships, dodgy dealings, children even - or do you have the right to know everything about them? In our guest Michael Praed's play Dangerous Corner digging into peoples' past does no one any good. But maybe you disagree. If you've been asked to tell all I'd love to know if you agreed - did being open help at all? And what happened if you refused?
POSTING PIX WITHOUT PERMISSION
After that, is it wrong to post pictures of someone, maybe your partner or parents, your kids even, without getting their permission? Aside from tramping over their right to privacy, many internet giants - twitter, facebook and instagram - can do what they like with your pictures and of course there's a risk perverts, weirdos and ne'er-do-wells can get hold of them too.
ONE CAT PER HOUSE? PURRFECT!
And then we'll wrap up proceedings by getting your reaction to the cat loving academics who want to limit households to one cat each, as overcrowding leaves our bird-eating, sharp-clawed moggies feline depressed. Eight and half million homes have at least one cat. Around half of them have more than one. How would you guys feel about cutting down on your cats?
