For the FT, Edward Luce lunches with Christopher Hitchens (correct link).

Also: Julian Flanagan interviews Tom Paulin.


  1. I think the Hitchens link should be

  2. Thanks--quite right! Overly hasty linkage...

  3. I think Christopher Hitchens is Great thanks for the interesting article i actually read the book mentioned in there "God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything" I think it is absolutely brilliant it really makes you think about religions and the society around you.
    This is easily the most impressive of the present crop of atheistic and anti-theistic books: clever, broad, witty and brilliantly argued, it takes on in one volume the scientific rationalist refutation of God

    Additionally, i really loved the ending of the article "Afterwards I reflect that our lunch was not all talk. The shock of discovering a non-smoking Hitchens was the final jolt I needed to quit – after a decent interval of course."
