Hitchens on Burqagate: British State ‘Loathes Christianity’, But ‘Fears Islam’

Peter Hitchens, brother of the late ‘anti-theist’ writer Christopher Hitchens, has waded into the debate surrounding Boris Johnson’s burqa comments, declaring it is Christianity, not Islam, which is “under siege” in Great Britain.
Despite a youthful commitment to Trotskyism, the British columnist’s political life has diverged sharply from his left-liberal older brother’s.

A conservative commentator and journalist of some note in his own right, the younger Hitchens has won the Orwell Prize in part for his foreign reporting from China, which he regards as a sinister left-wing dictatorship. He has also published books on a range of topics, including the so-called ‘war on drugs’ — which he sees as a necessary but largely unfought conflict — and the hostility of the present-day establishment to religion in general and Christianity in particular.
