Controversial and outspoken author and journalist Christopher Hitchens has died of cancer aged 62. Hitchens loved nothing better than picking a fight, or two, with political rivals. Amongst his best trade mark put downs he described Bill Clinton as a “cynical, self-seeking ambitious thug” and Mother Teresa as “a lying, thieving Albanian dwarf”. Hitchens believed that “The real axis of evil is Christianity, Judaism, and Islam” and later in his book, God Is Not Great, he expanded on that to include “all religions”. Love him or hate him he was a man who spoke his mind and he will be sorely missed. RIP Christopher Hitchens.
