Hitchens VS Blair
Well that was an interesting watch, Blair getting smacked up side the head and being told he's a silly boy. It was an unfair match-up I don't think there is any worse a choice than Tony Blair to stand up for monotheism, no matter what brand it is. Hitchens as always come out all guns blazing, Tho all he needed was one bullet and half a gun to drop Blair.
After watching this I wounder how Blair managed to run our country, more to the point how anyone could take him seriously on anything after this. If he puts this much effort in to philanthropy its no wounder we followed Bush in to Iraq/Afghanistan, the blind leading the blind.
As was talked about in the comments on the videos above this was a great way for Blair to end his career in debating. It also shines a light on the type of people that are in the UK government, Blair who is supposed to be good at this, it being large part of his old job at number 10. Then you have Hutchen's a journalist who clearly knows the subject, granted he has been at this much longer than Blair but I have a feeling Blair will never be able to compete with him.
Religion is a dieing beast if it wasn't for schools quashing kids ability to think critically, and also faith schools, it would be a thing of the past. Then maybe we could get on with making things better. Like a flat tax and some Austrian economics, how about no tax and no government!
