Douglas Murray
Since Hitch's death a few years ago I have been keeping my eyes peeled for someone with his guts and eloquence. I like Sam Harris but being a Brit I was looking for someone over here, so someone who would have exposure over here on our media which isn't the case with Sam unfortunately.

I think I have found that person in Douglas Murray. I have seem him recently on a few Political shows and my ears pricked and I thought...ooo I think I've found my new Hitch. His delivery is somewhat less...err...punchy than Hitch but he speaks truths many won't. Here's a talk he gave a few years and in the couple of years since this talk culminating in Paris the other week I think this talk is very relevant:




"The person who is certain, and who claims divine warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species." - Christopher Hitchens

"Remember kids, if you don't sin, then Jesus died for nothing. Have a great day!" - Ricky Gervais

RE: Douglas Murray
There is no one like Hitch, but Douglas is quite eloquent and has excellent communication skills. The one thing about his talk, is that I see problems, but he doesn't quite suggest solutions. I mean, are magazines are going to stop muslims from out-reproducing the Dutch and becoming a majority?

There's 'the Pen is mightier than the sword' view but the pen, unfortunately, is also slower than the sword.

What I do like is that he is at least saying it, many aren't and it think that's due to fear. Islam is a very touchy religion and people are treading on eggshells around it. Bad move...very bad move.
