Paddy O'Connell Sits In

Duration:
2 hours
First broadcast:
Tuesday 11 October 2011

Paddy O'Connell sits in for Jeremy.

A new report says that child poverty could increase from a fifth to a quarter over the next 3 years. As incomes fall, what has your child had to go without?

If you're disabled, have you been part of the Motability Scheme that allows you to lease a car with taxpayers' money? One commentator describes it as a 'racket'.

How often have you donated blood? One woman has given 120 pints of her blood. Do you feel guilty you don't donate?

A council in Staffordshire has stopped kids from using a swing because they say it creates too much noise and disturbance. Are you fed up with noise from a children's playground?
