In this pilot episode, we are joined by Telegraph columnist and leader writer Tim Stanley – a frequent guest on BBC’s Question Time and Radio 4’s Thought For The Day. 

We’ll be debating whether it’s acceptable to buy a property near a top state school just to get your child a place – when you could easily afford to go private – and navigating the murky maze of asking for a charitable donation back if the sponsored marathon runner never even crossed the starting line.

There are plenty more tricky topics to come – from haggling on holiday to charging another parent for damage caused by their child – dissected by Bryony Gordon, Janet Daley, Celia Walden, Harry de Quetteville and more.
