Try my quango quiz below... it will whet your appetite...

Hello again...

As I sit and write this, we are in the tantalising position where we are chasing a very good "scoop" - but not all the tent pegs are hammered into the ground and the guy ropes are not attached - our reporter, David Thompson, is on the case.

We will find out on Sunday if he has managed to stand it up.

Tasted a quango?

We are also focusing on quangos - watch out for the Politics Show's own version of the Tango-man who we have been filming outside the Houses of Parliament.

Max Cotton's been finding out how these bodies touch our everyday lives.

I'll be asking if there are too many of these organisations and finding out whether there's enough democratic accountability.

My colleagues across England and Wales will be calling their local quangos to account too.

...or pasta?

Paola Buonadonna has returned to the land of her fathers (and mothers) to report on the bust up which followed the suggestion by the Italian Interior Minister that all Muslims should sign a charter of values.

It hasn't provoked the sort of screaming headlines we've seen here about Muslim issues, but a fascinating debate about how to combine being Italian with being Muslim.

Join us at 12 - the roast and even the lasagna can wait
