Episode 26.3

Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis believe the children are the future, but everyone else wants them to get more exercise, steer clear of fast food and tobacco and be taught fewer subjects in school. Still, so long as Gordon Brown's already saved the world. Jon takes a look at what went wrong with the Large Hadron Collider, Laura inhales too much Helium, Marcus is worried about the climate and there are songs about cars, Coldplay and that Gordon Brown clanger from Mitch.
