                David Cameron has joined the calls for FIFA's President Sepp Blatter to resign. Pressure is mounting on football's governing body after sponsors voiced their concerns over the arrest of seven top officials on corruption charges. We spoke to the former sports minister Hugh Robertson, who expects Blatter to survive the row. And as David Cameron travels around Europe to build allies in EU re-negotiations, a French MP warns the prime minister not to use his referendum as a threat.

              • Dignitas death prompts fresh debate over assisted suicide laws

                As a 54 year old man, who's cancer was not thought to be terminal, dies at the Dignitas clinic in Switzerland, does this mean the UK should liberalise or tighten the law on assisted suicide? Lord Falconer tells us he'll try again to introduce his Bill in the Lords, while a leading Professor of Palliative Care says the man's death sends entirely the wrong message to the many people who live fulfilled lives, despite being severely paralysed. Leading Tory Eurosceptic, Liam Fox, gives the Prime Minister his advice on to renegotiate Britain's relationship with the EU. And one of the last survivors of the rear-guard fight at Dunkirk relives the battle, nearly 75 years to the day since it happened.

                On the programme today we discuss the challenges faced by David Cameron as he embarks on renegotiating the UK's relationship with the EU, ahead of the referendum. The Shadow Foreign Secretary, Hilary Benn, joins us to argue that 16 and 17 year olds should be given a vote in the referendum and that Labour would seek to amend the legislation to make that possible. After the Republic of Ireland's referendum on same sex marriage we speak to veteran campaigner and UUP councillor, Jeffrey Dudgeon, about the fact that it remains illegal in Northern Ireland. We end the programme with a discussion about land reform in Scotland.

                The Prime Minister has been speaking to fellow EU leaders in the Latvian capital, Riga, about Britain's relationship with Europe. David Cameron no longer seems to be talking about "full-on Treaty change", but can the reforms he wants be made without it? And just how significant is the relationship between migration and welfare? One leading Tory Eurosceptic, Chris Heaton-Harris, offers his advice to the PM. For free. As a Government Minister tells an audience at Hay that it's time to tax sugar, we ask whether the Danish experiment worked. And a councillor in Anglesey tells us what it's like living with broadband so weak that the peninsula has the lowest levels of internet use anywhere in the country.
