Gordon Brown
Hello again,

On this week's Politics Show...

Has Gordon got his groove back?

When the Prime Minister ruled out an early election, he said he wanted time to establish his vision.

And this week at Westminster, the dust is settling on Gordon Brown's first list of bills.

So has it done the trick, and if not, how can the government recapture political momentum?

David Thompson will seek advice on the Prime Minister's behalf.

Cleaning up

And superbugs - or Hospital Acquired Infections to give them their proper name - are hardly out of the news these days.

This week, operations were suspended at Glasgow's Southern General Hospital after six patients contracted wound infections.

And then the Conservative leader, David Cameron, chose to go on the attack in the Queen's Speech debate, accusing the government of needing the deep clean it promised hospitals.

But how can the superbugs be tackled?

Paola Buonadonna has been to the Netherlands to find out why that country has some of the lowest rates of hospital infections.

We'll ask if we could learn lessons here.

In his Autumn Political Cartoon Gallery, Gary Barker gives his own personal take on the politics of the week...

Broken covenant?

And there's been a lot of talk in the run up to Remembrance Sunday about the 'military covenant' - described as the mutual bond between a country and its troops.

The Royal British Legion believes that the covenant is broken, and not enough is being done to assist our current and former service men and women.

The Legion's director of welfare, Sue Freeth, will tell me what politicians can do to help.
