24 June 2011 Last updated at 10:44 BST

Economist and journalist Will Hutton said the UK must put its hand in its pockets to help Greece, claiming it would be "bonkers" to think Britain would not be affected by the eurozone's financial problems.

This was followed by a debate where Michael Portillo claimed the Euro crisis could 'sweep us all away'
