When a worm

happens upon a dead lion's body, the worm could consider itself a victor. In a way.

But even a worm wouldn't dance on the dead body, getting instead straight away to its natural business. Not so with humans. When Christopher Hitchens was alive and kicking, worms kept their distance. Now it seems like an open season for dancing on the dead body, and who but a Stalinist throwback like Richard Seymour, he of the Lenin's Tomb, to lead the attack?

Thankfully, as lions go, the tribe is still going strong, and here comes Nick Cohen, doing a bit of worm-squashing.

Was Christopher Hitchens a liar and a thief?

Yeah, they suddenly got inspiration and guts... no.
