Nick Cohen on 18DS

18 Doughty Street Cross Talk
In this preview for tonight's Cross Talk, author and journalist Nick Cohen defends his book, 'What's Left: How Liberals Lost Their Way', in the face of Yasmin Alibhai-Brown's impassioned criticism.
Impassioned it may have been but if you are going to debate with Nick Cohen about opinions expressed in his book you might think it a good idea to actually read the fucking thing first! Whatever credibility Alibhai-Brown had to start with (and, let's face it, that wasn't very much anyway) was lost once it became established she was criticizing a book she hadn't even bothered to open. What a wasted opportunity.
