This is a story that seems to have everyone talking. So, today, we've decided not to post an "I-Desk Online Poll." Instead, we want to hear from you... Post your comments here, and we'll share some of them during I-Desk.

Hello everyone...

First of all, Isha Sesay is doing double-duty at the I-Desk, while Hala does her civic duty in the United States (meaning: she has jury duty).

Alright, down to business:

We have a busy day at the I-Desk, starting with German officials meeting with Opel, regarding the auto company's future. There are several other enterprises, which are bidding to buy Opel, including companies from Canada, the U.S., Italy and Russia. Opel, of course, is General Motors' subsidiary in Germany... and, GM is dealing with its own issues. We'll be talking live Diana Magnay, outside an Opel factory, and with Stephanie Elam, who's handling the GM side of things.

Also on the agenda, the Champions League final. Manchester United and Barcelona face off in Rome, just before the late edition of I-Desk gets underway. We'll have live updates throughout the hour, including live pictures from Manchester & Barcelona, as fans celebrate (or don't celebrate) their teams.

We'll also continue to bring you the latest on the situation in North Korea, following another missile launch. And, the situation in South Asia keeps getting worse. Nearly 200 people are dead in Bangladesh, following a killer cyclone earlier this week. Our World Weather Team are closely monitoring the situation.

That'll do it for now... Don't forget to vote on our poll (see below). Who will win the Champions League final?? We'll see... at the I-Desk!

Hello there, I-Deskers...

First, let's talk about the presenter. Isha will, of course, present the early edition; and, Michael Holmes returns for Day-2 of his I-Desk debut, in the later edition. Hala returns on Wednesday.

Alright, down to business!

The big story today comes out of Britain, where for the first time in more than 300 YEARS, the speaker of the House of Commons has been forced to resign. Speaker Michael Martin was caught up in an expense scandal, which had several MPs calling for his resignation. Less than 24 hours after that debate in Parliament, Mr. Martin announced that he would quit. So, what now? Our political contributor and expert on UK politics, Robin Oakley, is working this story and giving his unique perspective. And, Prime Minister Gordon Brown is expected to comment on Mr. Martin's decision, during the early edition.

Also at the I-Desk... Sri Lanka is celebrating the apparent end to the war, at least according to the government. But, do you think it's really over? Check out our I-Desk Online Poll below, and cast your vote.

And... we're also covering the 120th birthday of the Eiffel Tower, as well as the revealing of the so-called "Missing Link."

See you at the I-Desk!!!
J the P
