The Miliband brothers Does Ed Milibands appointment as the leader of the British Labour Party mean the death knell for new labour? Shall the Religious Inherit? Religious identification and church attendance is in steep decline in the West. But it turns out that this trend coupled with other currents such as the drop in fertility rates in the West and global migration, could see the forces of religious fundamentalism dramatically alter the world as we know it. In fact as the population of the Western world ages and birth rates continue to fall, religious fundamentalists are on course to take over the world through demography.

Bruce Shapiro The mid-term election season has reached its peak with five weeks to go and probably the craziest climate in an election Bruce Shapiro can think of. It's got everything from the loony candidates, like Carl Paladino or Christine O'Donnell to the anti-masturbation Tea Party insurgent in Delaware. It's the poll - which is all over the place, with enormous differences between local and national polls, sudden surges for dark horse candidates and generally a sense that the outcome is more completely up for grabs than any time people can remember. A History of Famine Famines have been around for millennia and remain one of the worst catastrophes which can befall a society. They've often been viewed as an inevitable part of life, but during the 20th century, most famines were not solely the result of crop failure or drought, but more often linked to either civil strife and war or ideology and despotic leaders. But the frequency of famine is decreasing and we now have within our reach ample food supplies, effective means of distribution, the instantaneous communication necessary to avoid further famine or mass starvation. So can we say that it won´t ever happen again?

In this conversation recorded in 2002, Murray discusses his latest piece in the London Review of Books. He describes the goings on in the Japanese Parliament by likening the televised sittings to a soap opera.
