So the tax payer gets to take on most of the risk of Northern Rock but not necessarily enjoy much of the profit. That appears to be Alistair Darling's latest plan to solve the problem of the troubled bank. The Tories say the government is gambling with public money. The Lib Dems are accusing the government of being politically frightened of nationalisation. We'll debate what the best thing really is for the tax payer and the bank.
There are dramatic pictures from Gaza where the power station is not working and the UN claim food supplies are running out because of an Israeli blockade. The Israeli government say recent events have been staged by Hamas and that the people of Gaza are not under any real threat. We're trying to find out the truth.
First we were definitely going to get a referendum on an EU constitution. Then it was a debate in parliament about whether we would get a referendum. Now there will not even be a debate. Michael Crick will explain.
We'll also be speaking to the former Norwegian Prime Minister. Why? Because Kjell Magne Bondevik is one of the few front line politicians to take sick leave because of depression. Despite this he was re-elected by the people of Norway. Would we be so understanding?
