Christopher Hitchens v Tony Blair: the video

Watch the atheist writer and the former prime minister clash over religion in Toronto.

The full debate between Christopher Hitchens (whom I interviewed iin summer this year) and Tony Blair is now available to watch online. The pair debated whether religion was a force for good in the world.

In a vote after the debate, 68 per cent of the audience sided with Hitchens and 32 per cent with Blair. Now you've got a chance to make your own mind up.
