The independent House of Commons Library is predicting that by 2056 there will be an extra 17million people, taking the total to 67.9million. More births, people living longer and, more significantly, continued mass immigration will fuel the unprecedented growth in numbers. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

Book of the Month
= = = = = = = = = =

"William Wilberforce - The Life of the Great Anti-Slave Trade Campaigner." William Hague has written the life of William Wilberforce who was both a staunch conservative and a tireless campaigner against the slave trade. Hague shows how Wilberforce, after his agonising conversion to evangelical Christianity, was able to lead a powerful tide of opinion, as MP for Hull, against the slave trade, a process which was to take up to half a century to be fully realised.
