Saving money on home affairs
We're setting off today on our five day trip to find out how you would cut the budget deficit if you were Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Don't worry about suggesting things that are unpopular - our aim is to see how much of the national overdraft we can chip away at in just a week, thanks to your ideas.
Our first stop will be Reading in Berkshire. Throughout Drive on Monday, 5 live Money's Declan Curry and I will be chatting to people at the Broad Street Mall about how they'd save money on the UK's home affairs budget. So we're looking at the money currently spent on things like schools, hospitals and police.
Flicking through the Chancellor George Osborne's Red Book - his Budget from last month - I can tell you the government is planning to spend £122bn on the NHS this year. That is about 22p of every £1 we pay in tax.
The Prime Minister has promised that the health service budget won't be squeezed, but we'll be hearing one radical idea to do just that.
And we're keen to hear plenty more from you. Once Drive is on air you can text us on 85058, you can comment below or you can contribute to the BBC News website's Have Your Say discussion on this.
One final thought.
I think I have found the most-uttered political cliché of 2010. Here it is: "Front line services." Politicians of every persuasion trot out the phrase, with the word "protect" usually cropping up somewhere nearby.
But what on earth is a "front line service?" How would you define it? Perhaps we would all agree that a teacher or a doctor, for instance, would count. But what about the person who picks up the phone when we have to dial 999? And what about teaching assistants? Do they count too?
