Cilla Quinn here sitting in for Ed today who's a little poorly. Nice to talk to you again.
I was due to head off to Wales to talk to people about fortnightly rubbish collections today - lots of those voting in next week's local elections are very angry about the stink, the rats etc. So it was interesting to see the story about Gareth Corkhill this morning who was fined and given a criminal record because his (fortnightly-collected) wheelie bin was so full the lid wouldn't shut. Is it an issue that gets you going?
Later we'll be hearing about the costs of the European Parliament - how much does it cost to run two centres in Brussels and Strasbourg - and what about those MEP allowances and expenses. Is there a euro equivalent of the John Lewis list? Juan Luis perhaps? Giovanni Luigi? Jean Louis? What would it be in Hungarian? Or Greek? Maybe you can help us out?
See you at 5.
