5 live Breakfast: The first anniversary of the Coalition
What's your verdict on the coalition government at Westminster, as it marks its first birthday?
Over the last few days on 5 live Breakfast, I've been trying to find out.
Few dispute the scale and the scope of the government's ideas for change in its first year. But for all of those who see them a positive step, plenty of others disagree.
What stands out for you as the most controversial decision taken by Messrs Cameron and Clegg in the last twelve months?
Three struck me as worth taking a look at this week:
University tuition fees in England
My first stop was the University of Kent in Canterbury.
Suddenly I realised why so many parts of the UK have been having terrific weather recently. It's exam time.
But there wasn't a vast queue of students up for chatting to Rachel Burden and I at half six in the morning.
Helen Wood, the President of the University of Kent Students Union, scraped herself out of bed for us.

"Everything's been tipped upside down in the last year," Helen told me. The University of Kent is planning to charge tuition fees of £9,000 a year from 2012. "I'd have never believed it a year ago. It hits home when you think of younger brothers and sisters. People are making their decisions on where to go based on the cost."
Owen Lyne, a Lecturer in Statistics and activist with the University and College Union, told me it'll completely change the relationship between students, universities and lecturers.
"Universities won't have any more money - and yet students will expect more for their money, because they're paying more. University will be an economic transaction, and it shouldn't be that."
But many argue leaving things as they are is unsustainable, and those benefiting from going to university should pay the going rate for it.
Cuts in government spending
Next stop for me, for Thursday's Breakfast, was Linlithgow in West Lothian.
The coalition are planning £81billion pounds of cuts over the next four years.
I went to meet Robert Collin, who runs Cube Architecture. Robert told me that over the last three years or so his clients have changed. Fewer working families can afford an extension, for instance. Either money is very tight or people are scared it will be if they lose their job.
Retired people, or those whose kids have left home and are about to retire, do have the money for renovations and building work.
But he's noticed another interesting trend, which he also links to government spending cuts.
"Workers are being asked to work from home," Robert tells me. "But home workers don't have the space, so the solution is an office in the garden. Some of them are just two square metres - room for a desk, a computer and a phone. And it is a mixture of public sector and private sector people after them - from bankers to those working for the NHS."
For the final stop of my tour, I rolled up in Radlett in Hertfordshire, to look at the controversial changes planned for the English NHS - which involve giving more power to family doctors, and to the private sector.
The Practice Manager Ken Spooner generously welcomed me in, despite it being the wrong side of six o'clock in the morning.
Ken and Dr Mike Ingram, a GP at the surgery for almost 25 years, have signed up for a pilot scheme testing the new arrangements. It's involved a trip to Westminster; even a cup of tea in Downing Street.
Ken's approach is pragmatic. He has reservations, but thinks it's better to be involved from the outset rather than carp from the sidelines.
But he's worried about the detail, and the implications for the surgery and the patients: "We could end up replacing one lot of bureaucracy with another," he says.
Dr Ingram, too, is drawn towards the government's big picture theme here. He likes the idea of empowering surgeries like Red House, but also has his concerns.
"I am attracted by the veneer of responsibility, to be more involved in the care of our patients. But what we're worried about is what's underneath that veneer. Where will the ultimate responsibility lie? Will we be left with all the blame and none of the power?"
David Cameron's future - and the future of the coalition government as it enters its second year - could rest upon convincing people like Ken Spooner and Dr Mike Ingram that he has definitive answers to their questions.
