Rehashing the Mash

Christopher adds to the spate on the debate with his own post mortem. [What is it about this thing that has everyone rhyming all of a sudden?]

Lovely write up of the event in the London Observer by Andrew Anthony. It includes an amusing tale of what the pre-debate street atmsophere was like and describes Hitchen's reception therein, "Teetering on the elegant side of dishevelled, Hitchens cut a defiant figure shuffling along the line."

It also gives a well informed account of the political and philosophical antagonism between the two men. And describes the chasm between the two men as amounting to a now insurmountable difference in outlook.

Norm Geras renders his verdict. An unabashed advantage Hitch -- which won't surprise anyone who reads his blog.
