Do you watch either on TV or follow either on social media?
Follow Hitchen on twatter and he does usually try and weigh up the fact and evidence when offering his counter arguments to the mainstream narrative. But on this he his simply flat out wrong and there is no two ways about it.

Plus one of the other ironies is that he's complaining about Britain become an authoritarian police state, yet much of his 'it's no worse than the flu' rhetoric is based on the figures from China, which are obviously complete bullshit, due to the country being an authoritarian police state.

you believe hitchens to be, more often than not, fair but on this one important subject he is acting totally out of character?

Mike Graham.

Is he the one that paired up with Mike Porky Parry and had that awful top gear style forced banter way about him?

How has he got worse than that?

I have been following Brendan O'Neill throughout coronavirus and a bigger twat you will not meet.
A lot of people describe Hitchens as a professional contrarian. I can see why they do that, but I think that's a little unfair.

But that's a completely fair description of O'Neill, whose entire ideology is that the MSM are wrong about every issue. This means he inevitably hits the mark some of the time but also leads to him taking ludicrous positions, like this pile of waffle about gay marriage which he was inexplicably invited to Parliament to speak about a few years back.
