john_reid_203.jpgHome Secretary John Reid is under fire on several fronts as the Conservatives accused his department of descending into "anarchy". First the head of the Youth Justice Board of England and Wales, Rod Morgan, quit in protest at prison overcrowding. A second judge then said he released a sex offender because Mr Reid had urged judges to avoid jailing people. And Mr Reid admitted the government acted "unlawfully" in relation to the detention young asylum seekers. Newsnight has an interview with Professor Rod Morgan.

Also: We hope to have an interview with a Roman Catholic Archbishop responding a gay adoption poll; and the Daily Mail editor's BBC criticisms.
