Friday 8 January 2010 - the plan so far
Northern Ireland's First Minister Peter Robinson is coming under increased political pressure over allegations about his wife's financial affairs. Tonight we'll consider if Iris Robinson - who obtained £50,000 from two property developers to help her young lover start a business - should resign, and if she might bring down the political career of her husband with her. We'll be seeking out opinion from Northern Ireland and from Westminster, and examining whether it is vital for the power-sharing Executive that Mr Robinson survives.
And at the end of an eventful week Michael Crick will be assessing where Gordon Brown stands after the failed coup. Incidentally Michael was blogging yesterday about whether Mr Brown was now safe and reports that Justice Secretary Jack Straw was enraged by Nick Robinson's report on the plot - you can read that here.
