The Foreign Secretary William Hague talks to John Pienaar about Egypt, multi-culturalism, and the prospect of Tory tax cuts. The former Conservative leader also rebuffs claims he's lost some of his passion for politics.

Bianca Jagger explains why she's put her name to a campaign against a proposed sell-off of some publicly-run forests in England.

And after David Cameron claims multiculturalism has failed, John Pienaar takes to the streets of London's Chinatown - and Brick Lane, home to one of London's largest Muslim communities - to find out what the phrase means to ordinary people.
