This is the first time I listened to Peter Hitchens. Not sure I'll repeat the experience (he was not particularly interesting), but:

- I was not aware he was the brother of Christopher Hitchens until I started listening to him. The similarity in the voice and intonation was so unmistakable I turned to Wikipedia to confirm. Very impressive!
- It’s almost beyond belief how diametrically opposite worldviews the two brothers managed to develop. It is almost comical.

This bit (starting at 17:17) is good though (even if not particularly original):

Labour party ceased to be the party of the English working class or trade unions, it gave that up, and became instead the party of bourgeois bohemians and pseudo-intellectuals, and political and cultural liberals.
