The Independent -- Hitchens defeats Blair in Canadian religion debate

I saw this article from The Independent and thought it might be of interest to you

Tony Blair told an audience member at a debate yesterday that his religious beliefs did not play a role in his decision to support the US invasion of Iraq - but the votes went 2-1 the way of his opponent, Christopher Hitchens.

I saw it in the Guardian. Apparently 52% (if my memory serves me right) agreed with Hitchens prior to the debate starting, whilst only 22% supported Blair's position. Not entirely a unbias audience. Also, not sure about Blair vs. Hitchens as a fair match...bit like when Dawkins went up against Widecombe!

More often than not, Dawkins gets matched up with patsies.
