Anthony Flew

The Sunday Times interviews Anthony Flew on his recent move away from atheism and contains the following gem: "One of the reasons I hate Blair and Brussels is that Blair is against Britain and British history!” His vehemence transforms the calm gaze of an intellectual into the stiff-armed gestures of a zealot. Noting my alarm, he concedes: “I’m getting very excited and why shouldn’t I? I was alive in the summer of 1940 and it is terrible to see the country being thrown away by the present generation and made subordinate to a corrupt bureaucracy!"
