Jim Al-Khalili is announced as the new British Humanist Association President and we speak to the BHA’s Chief Exec about what the amazing new census numbers mean for non-religious people in the UK. It’s not so great for non-believers elsewhere though as a new report shows – and we also pick apart the Snoopers Charter, which was shot down this week by Nick Clegg. Plus a new mental health manual could have a big impact, why Northern Ireland is still flagging, and why Erasmus Darwin was awesome.
