'I think Britain is finished.'

Peter Hitchens is an award-winning conservative author, broadcaster, journalist and political commentator. Fiercely incisive  and polemical, he has a weekly column in the Mail on Sunday as well as being a contributing writer to The Spectator, The American Conservative, the Guardian and the New Statesman.

Hitchens is a fierce critic of the conservative party, famously describing its politics as in line with the 'communist workers' party'.  He is also the author of numerous books, the most recent of which is 'The Phoney Victory' which argues that Britain's did not really win World War 2.

'I thank God for whatever it was in the Hitchens milk that produced such argumentative, un-intimidateable sons' - Douglas Murray
