  • People want the right to die at a time of their own choosing. Too many families have watched helplessly as a relative dies slowly, longing for death.
  • But instead of standing up for reason, our government is handing education over to the world of faith.
  • But how odd that in this heathen nation of empty pews, where churches' bare, ruined choirs are converted into luxury loft living, a Labour government - yes, a Labour government - is deliberately creating a huge expansion of faith schools.
  • Most people come to fear not death itself, but the many terrible ways of dying.
  • It is now possible to quantify people's levels of happiness pretty accurately by asking them, by observation, and by measuring electrical activity in the brain, in degrees from terrible pain to sublime joy.
  • Could a government dare to set out with happiness as its goal? Now that there are accepted scientific proofs, it would be easy to audit the progress of national happiness annually, just as we monitor money and GDP.
  • Is anyone serious about the politics of happiness? David Cameron dipped a toe in the water, using the word lightly, but denying the hard policies it implies. Labour shies away from it, but should take up the challenge.
  • How do you make any sense of history, art or literature without knowing the stories and iconography of your own culture and all the world's main religions?
  • There is all the difference in the world between teaching children about religion and handing them over to be taught by the religious.
