29 June 2020 – Hitchens on cannabis

Journalist Peter Hitchens has defended British newspapers against claims they had stoked tensions and made Britain “tribal”.

Joining Mike Graham for their weekly debate, the pair discussed the ongoing civil unrest caused by protests and counter-protests surrounding racial issues.

Mr Hitchens said: “We are a divided country and we vote tribally and we have an adversarial Parliament. “The tribalism which no longer takes place in Parliament has now moved on to the streets.

“I don’t think you can blame the newspapers for that, newspapers have always been in this country partisan and we’ve had a diverse press. “That’s been a good thing, but oddly enough I think it’s less divers than it has been for a long time”.
