    Watch the sparks fly on this one. I thought Black was going to get up and thump him.

    Paxman, the BBC heavy hitter who saw nothing amiss in the BBC. Paxman, who cut his teeth explaining away British atrocities in the 6 cos. Lert someone interrogate this British twit on why Savile passed him by,

    I thought Paxman was losing it recently, but that is top notch! Thanks for posting...

    I think Black is on Have I Got News For You this week too, I hope Hislop is ready...

    Ah brilliant. I was never a Conrad Black fan before but I might be after watching that ... "priggish, gullible, British fool". Paxman more than met his match.

    He got his teeth knocked out there by Black.

    A few months ago the Star Trek man was on. He was a bore. The ego has landed flopped down in a pile of **** of his own making.
    Picard or Kirk? Your description sounds more like Wesley Crusher though...

    saw it last night, great come back by Conrad. Interesting article by him last year

    Conrad Black: America's Justice System Has Failed Us All


    But Mr. Webb accurately summarizes some of the problem is America's incarceration of six to 12 times as many people per capita as other advanced, prosperous democracies (Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and the United Kingdom). Either, as he wrote in his essay, "Criminal Injustice," these other countries don't care about crime, which is nonsense (and they all have lower crime rates than the U.S.), or Americans are uniquely addicted to committing crimes, which is also nonsense, or the American system has broken down. Bingo.

    The United States has five per cent of the world's population, 25 per cent of the world's incarcerated people, and 50 per cent of the world's lawyers (who account for nearly 10 per cent of the country's GDP, an onerous taxation of American society).
