Despatches from a war zone
By Jim Forrest
Humanists UK Chief Executive Andrew Copson was the entertaining and thought-provoking guest speaker at our AGM at the Brighton Conference.
His talk on The Global War on the Non-Religious gave a chilling account of the growing threat from intolerance, yet delivered with a wit and panache that demonstrated all that's best about free thought.
Earlier in the Conference, our joint fringe meeting with the Liberal Democrat Education Association, a consultative workshop on Home Schooling, provoked lively discussion and provided a number of action points to take away for future policy development.
