As a former official at the International Monetary Fund agrees to become Italy's interim Prime Minister, the parties that thought they'd won the right to govern lash out at the country's President. Is the European Union's reluctance to change colliding, again, with what many voters want?

It was on, then off, and now it is on again. IF President Trump and Kim Jong Un do shake hands, what does a deal, meeting in the middle, actually look like?

As Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is charged with crimes against women we hear from a New York lawyer specialising in sexual assault. Spain is on the brink of a political crisis as opposition parties call for a vote of no confidence in the prime minister. Deal or no deal? President Trump now suggests that a planned summit with his North Korean counterpart could still go ahead a day after calling it off. Plus should the UK have a specific offence of holocaust denial?

Theresa May has said the decision to destroy the landing cards of Windrush immigrants was taken under Labour. Jeremy Corbyn accused her government of being "callous and incompetent". But should the Home secretary take the blame? We hear from a former head of the Border agency.

The government has suffered an emphatic defeat in the House of Lords over membership of a customs union after Brexit. Will it embolden Tory Brexit mutineers? We talk to one of them.

Theresa May has apologised to the Commonwealth after immigration rules introduced when she was Home Secretary led to people from the Windrush Generation being threatened with deportation. The Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda tells us the Government should consider compensating those who've suffered.
After two black customers were arrested in a Starbucks in Philadelphia - because they hadn't ordered any coffee - the company says it will close all its branches in the US for "racial bias" training. We speak to an expert on biased policing who trains the trainers. And after 69 years, from tomorrow Cuba will no longer be led by a Castro. We report from Havana on the new leader and on the slow pace of change.
And for those who remain in charge, how about a training course before they're allowed to be? Professor Brian Cox, irritated by what he calls the blustering certitude of some politicians, tells me MPs should take a test first. We put that to Layla Moran MP, a new MP elected in 2017, and former teacher.
