7PM Phone Hacking: As News International issues an unreserved apology for the News of the World Phone Hacking scandal, I want to know if we should blame ourselves, as well as tabloid journalists for this scandal.
8PM Lap Dancing Clubs: The City of London corporation wants to ban all lap dancing clubs from September in the square mile due to their damaging impact on women. Good decision, or yet another example of our elders and betters knowing what’s good for us?
9PM The value of reading: Research shows that the only out of school activity that will really enhance a teenager’s career prospects is reading. Computer gaming teenagers however are less likely to go to university. So reading for pleasure as a teenager helps your career prospects. Who’d have thought? Did reading as a youngster help you? And I also want to talk about literary festivals which are experiencing somewhat of a revival. Have you been to one recently in your own town, or do you go to the big ones in Oxford or Hay? What do you get out of them?
