"The idea that Northern Ireland can sit and refuse to make any changes round welfare reform is not a sustainable political position and it says to the people of Northern Ireland, politics doesn't work." That's what shadow Secretary of State Ivan Lewis told the Nolan show earlier this week. Let's listen to a bit more. He was one of the fiercest politicians of his generation. Norman Tebbitt, now Lord Tebbit, was given nicknames like Thatcher's rottweiler. The former Tory cabinet member controversially hit the headlines last week. That was after he suggested dissident republicans might shoot deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness for attending a Royal banquet. Lord Tebbit was, of course, one of the victims of the 1984 IRA bombing of the Brighton hotel. His wife, Margaret, was paralysed in the attack.

You will remember last year the story that we covered of the 18 care homes set for closure under 'transforming your care'. At the time we spoke to 92 year old Jean Faulkner who was going to have to leave her care home. Health Minister Edwin Poots has now confirmed that all 18 care homes will stay open and that existing residents will be allowed to remain in their home for as long as they wish and so long as their needs can continue to be met. Stephen talks to Jean and gets her reaction to the news that her care home will remain open. We also get the views of Jean's cousin, Sheena Costelloe, and political reaction from SF's Maeve McLaughlin, SDLP's Ferghal McKinney and UUP's Roy Beggs Junior.

Attracting Catholics to unionism. Is that a realistic goal? And is the union at risk if it doesn't happen? The First Minister Peter Robinson has told members of the DUP they need to seek out converts to unionism. He was speaking at the party's spring conference in Newcastle on Saturday. Mr Robinson said demographic changes could not be wished away and ignoring them would be, what he termed, "constitutionally dangerous". The DUP leader said the test of success for unionist parties would be in stopping to look for Lundies and starting to look for converts.

Our top story this morning, bonfire blight for Newtownabbey. Bonfires are a huge part of life for a lot of people in Northern Ireland. But as we reported on Wednesday they can also be highly devisive. Newtownabbey councillors have voted to spend 30 thousand pounds facilitating a bonfire site in Ballyduff. That sent the phones red hot. Well in the wake of that people living close to another bonfire site, also in Newtownabbey, got in touch with the Nolan show. They said that even though it's only the 2nd week of April, construction is well underway. We were told one hundred tyres and hundreds of pallets are on the site already. We sent Lisa up for a look. And our Friday interview this week is with broadcaster Liz Kershaw who has presented the Top 40 on Radio 1, has fought to save Radio 6 Music AND also made claims of being routinely groped while working at the BBC and described the atmosphere at Radio 1 as very intimidating for a young woman.
