Tonight on my LBC Show From 7pm...

7PM Aid to Africa: Lord Mandelson has courted controversy again by suggesting that African aid has been wasted and created an army of ‘professional beggars’. He said money should have been poured into trade deals rather than handouts. Is Peter Mandelson right? Should we reconfigure our aid policies and make them dependent on trade?

8PM Dentistry: We keep being told that it is easier to find an NHS dentist than ever before. But a survey out today shows that the cost of NHS dentistry is encouraging people to delay dental treatment of opt for cheaper care. And 10% of people don’t go to the dentist because they are scared stiff and 20% don’t go because of bad experiences with their dentist. Why do we British care so little for our teeth? And why isn’t dental care free at the point of use, just like any other medical treatment?

British Dental Association wouldn’t put up a spokesman because – and I quote – "It’s been a long day". Pathetic.

9PM LBC Legal hour with Daniel Barnett from Outer Temple Chambers.

Iain, what on earth are you doing giving the oxygen of airtime to peter mandelson. He, of all people should be shunned by all normal people in this country. I despair that you allow evil to thrive. When socalled civilised men grant the likes of mandelson and campbell and blair, brown, hoon and all the other socialists, the same rights that they would deprive us of, if they were ever allowed, they are enabled in their task. Justice for all the normal people of our country, is what is needed, not debate with our enemies.
