7PM Unemployment: Unemployment has fallen for the second quarter in a row. Signs of a recovery or a straw in the wind? Is this proof that the private sector is rising to the occasion and replacing the jobs shed by the public sector? But the number of women out of work is the highest for some time. Why do women suffer disproportionately in difficult economic times? Guest: Chris Grayling
8PM Ken Clarke: The Justice Secretary caused outrage today over his remarks on degrees of rape. Ed Miliband called for the PM to sack him, while women’s groups have been up in arms. Isn’t he another politician whose only crime is to speak the truth as he sees it, or do you think he should he pay with his job for his apparent crassness? Did his language offend you? And hasn’t this who episode marred a proper debate out sentencing for rapists?
9PM LBC Parliament Philip Lee, Conservative MP for Bracknell, Andy Slaughter, Labour MP for Hammersmith, and Julian Huppert, LibDem MP for Cambridge.
