Andrew Neil and Shelagh Fogarty are joined by the director of the London School of Economics, Howard Davies.

They'll be taking a look at the financial crisis sweeping the eurozone, European leaders are meeting in Brussels, and top of the agenda will be the Greek economy which is on the brink of collapse.

Massively in debt, it's thought either the IMF or other European countries will come to its rescue. Gordon Brown's under mounting pressure from MPs to ensure that only eurozone countries contribute to a rescue package. There's all the latest from the summit and they'll be talking to the Conservative MEP, Daniel Hannan.

On the eve of a major assault against Taliban strongholds, they will talk to a former soldier who's served in Afghanistan.

Plus, why is there no British Tea Party? Last weekend, under the aura of Sarah Palin, the American Tea Party met. For those of you not in the know, it's a little man against big government movement that's sweeping the states. You'd be forgiven for thinking that a similar movement would do well in the UK. They'll be speaking to commentator Simon Jenkins about that.
