DO OVERPROTECTIVE DADS HARM DAUGHTERS?
And then: I want a word on overprotective dads - do they harm their daughters? Studies show fathers are far more worried about their girls having sex than their sons, Peter Andre for example saying he wants his nine-year-old to become a nun. A bit of laugh or something darker?

DNA SCREENING AT BIRTH?
Then, I want to know where you stand on DNA testing every child at birth? With the cost of mapping your genes in freefall, there's a growing argument that identifying and treating problems early could save the health service a fortune. But what about the side effects: higher insurance costs for example? And who would you trust to keep your child's data safe?

VAT ON MEAT: LUXURY TAX, LUXURY PRODUCT?
First up: I want to know what you'd say to campaigners calling for 20 per cent VAT to be slapped on meat, taking a leg of lamb from £10 to £12. When Value Added Tax was introduced in 1973 it was levy on luxury goods. Some luxury foods like ice cream are already subject to VAT; with meat neither particularly good for you nor the planet, should it be...

11M REASONS TO PUT SIGNING ON CURRICULUM?
And finally: should sign language be taught on the national curriculum as campaigners like Wayne Barrow argue - he'll be here explaining this phone-in to our hearing impaired viewers this morning. Around 3 million British kids are taught french, a useful skill, if you're there on holiday or meet one of the 300,000 french people based in this country...

BANK HOLIDAYS FOR UK'S PATRON SAINTS
After that: should every patron saint get their own bank holiday? St Patrick's and St Andrew's day already are in Ireland and Scotland respectively, so why why not St David's and St George's day? Or would so much time off play havoc with the UK's economy?

RACIST TO AVOID EYE CONTACT?
And then I want to to know what you make of the latest guidance to Oxford University students that it's racist to avoid eye contact, an act of racial microagression. Really? What if you're shy? What if you're from a culture where eye contact is considered rude?

RISING SPEEDING FINES: TOO SOFT ON RICH?
First up I wanna know what you make of the latest shift in speeding fines that could see the worst offenders billed 175 per cent of their weekly wage but capped at a maximum of £2,500. Anyone earning up to £125,000 a year would lose their entire week's wages, but a multi millionaire would arguably still be quids in. Fair?

ESCAPE BORING PARTNER?
For our last phone-in of the week: I want to know what you'd tell this woman who's just about sick of her boring husband of more than 20 years. "He doesn't start conversations, rarely listens to me and some nights doesn't say anything," she moans. Is that grounds to walk away or the cue to spice things up?

FREE BEER FOR THE HOMELESS!
Then I want to know where you stand on the brewing giant giving free beer to the homeless? It happened in Liverpool to the fury of councillors who the slammed the Budweiser campaign for being irresponsible and aggressive. More than 50 per cent of rough sleepers have alcohol problems. But if you're giving our free beer to the public, wouldn't it be discriminatory...

GIVE 16-YEAR-OLDS THE VOTE?
First up: they had a say in the Scottish independence referendum so should 16-year-olds get the vote in the general election? The Green Party's Caroline Lucas and Angus Robertson from the SNP say yes, it's wrong to give them a vote in some polls but not others. At 16 you can join the army, ride a moped, have a baby - but can't buy a packet of cigarettes...

FAKE FUR: WORSE THAN REAL FUR?
To wrap up: I'd like to hear what you think of the campaigner arguing that fake fur is worse than real fur: Some fake fur contains real fur, the chemicals in fake fur are an environmental nightmare, while just the sight of fake fur normalises and increases the desirability of real fur.

LABOUR: STAND ON 2nd EU VOTE TICKET?
Then: I want to know what you make of calls for Labour to stand on a second EU referendum ticket? The Times claims that's what senior party figures are after. Two-thirds of Labour voters backed remain as did nearly 40 per cent of Tories. If Corbyn could win all those remainers over might he end up in number 10?
