The end of the world is not nigh. The idea that we are one step from calamity is as old as history itself. Every step on the road of progress has always been countered by those who think that we should keep to a primitive lifestyle that they claim is compatible with nature. But despite the fact that they've been proved wrong, the pessimists are undeterred by their abysmal record. They continue to echo a deep-seated fear that unless we repent and change the way we live, we will be instrumental in destroying our own world. Today industrialisation, genetically modified crops, scientific medicine, nuclear power and the car are held up as the harbingers of doom. Politicians and persuasive pressure groups play on this same basic fear. They scare us with tales of an inevitable global warming catastrophe blamed on CO2 emissions, they stoke the fires of terror that an epidemic of obesity will kill all our children and they sternly tell us that our indulgent lifestyle will consume the earth's precious resources. But will pesticides kill off life in our oceans, will chemicals in food poison us all and invisible rays from power cables and mobiles kill us with cancer? Stanley Feldman, a professor of anaestetics at London University appointed to the Imperial College School of Medicine looks at the evidence. An author of several books, including From Poison Arrows to Prozac, he is a respected lecturer and explainer of popular science. Vincent Marks is an editor of Panic Nation and an expert on diabetes. He is a former president of the Association of Clinical Biochemists and founder member of HealthWatch.

In today's conformist, censorious, politically-correct world we are not allowed to speak our minds for fear of being called a racist, a sexist or a bigot - and yet, when somebody does buck the trend and says what we all - or at least the majority of us - are really thinking, we often applaud it. Why is that?Surely if the majority of people think in a certain way, then that should be the way that our democracy is run. We should not have a silent majority wishing that the country was run in one way, while an arrogant minority is taking it in a completely different direction. Examples abound in UK politics of politicians not listening to the people who elected them (the EU, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan etc.) Indeed, in recent years, in politics as in TV, substance has given way to spin. Well I intend to change that. The PDC could not promise a horn of plenty for all but what it would promise is an honest, hard-working team of dedicated professionals working together to get the best deal for this country and its inhabitants - not for themselves, not for their cronies or for the self-serving elite but for the hard-working citizens of this country without whom there would be no Britain to make Great again NB - I do not subscribe to social networks but if you would like to show your support for this project or make a pledge towards its funding you may do so at; www.the-pdc.org.uk

The growth of the economy and the spread of prosperity are increasingly seen as problematic rather than positive. They are accused of encouraging greed, damaging the environment, causing unhappiness and widening social inequalities. The mainstream acceptance of these views is a trend Daniel Ben-Ami has termed 'growth scepticism'.Ferraris for all is a rejoinder to the growth sceptics. Using examples from a range of countries, the author argues that society as a whole benefits from greater affluence. Action is needed - not to limit prosperity, but to encourage creativity and growth in resolving the problems of poverty, inequality and the environment, to increase abundance and to spread it worldwide.Lively and provocative, this timely book will trigger debate and dissent in equal measure."An exceptional and much needed book."

The letters page of Old Git magazine continues to offer its readers an opportunity to ask and provide answers to the most pressing questions of our times. Questions such as: Would it help global warming if I left my fridge door open? What's the riskiest game of risk ever played? If I fell down a disused mineshaft would Lassie really run and get help, or just sit there licking his balls? Do Bats Have Bollocks? features a host of completely new and untrue questions and answers. With bags more rude jokes, shaggy dog stories and the odd entry from a new, bewildered editor who's wondering what the hell he's got himself into, this book is every bit as laugh-out-loud funny as last year's hugely successful volume Do Ants Have Arseholes?

Ethan Greenhart is a committed ethicist, green writer, and activist. Ethan is so ethical when it comes to the environment, it's scary. He favors euthanasia as a solution to the world's over-crowding problems; he is opposed to throwing confetti at weddings because it contains bleach and artificial colorings that leak into the earth; and he doesn't travel anywhere that can't be reached by foot. In summary, Ethan has an environmental bone to pick with every aspect of modern life, from voting to vacationing to having children. Based on his hugely popular and provocative weekly advice columns for Spiked magazine, this engaging collection of essays provides innovative answers to all of today’s most pressing environmental dilemmas. Hilarious and thought-provoking, this is an acidly accurate satire that’s sure to hit home.

How To Like Everything is a utopia. 'Utopia' is a word invented five hundred years ago at the start of the modern age as a description of the ideal society. It's composed of Latin parts that taken together mean 'no place' or 'nowhere'. We now use the word utopia to mean an impossible dream of perfection. How To Like Everything recasts the actual world, the forever-changing world we live in, as utopia: to make the impossible possible. This is not a dry academic debate. Paul Shepheard takes on his subject by threading questions, evidence and logic through hilarious, moving and thought-provoking stories. The action is set in the complicated city of Amsterdam, where he gets stuck in the briars of love affairs, existential decisions and conflicts with complete strangers. And the philosophy? He is a materialist. His utopia hinges on the question of whether there can be anything other than the present moment.
