Those dinner parties

From the latest Normblog profile:

If you could have any three guests, past or present, to dinner who would they be? > The late journalist Chaim Bermant, whom I never met, although he is related to me by marriage; Jesus; and Tony Blair.

I’m not familiar with Mr Bermant or his work, but he must be pretty damn good to be worthy of dinner with Tony Blair himself.

Presumably for Nick Cohen it would be: Paul Berman, Tony Blair (post-Iraq) and whoever is this weeks Hero of Decency (e.g. Jacobson). Frankly I'd rather be at Abigail's party, if you see what I mean.

Nick would presumably like a bit of gender balance at the party,so I imagine he would invite whoever the last principled feminist in Britain happened to be that week.

What philosophical thesis do you think it most important to combat? > That religious faith is a delusion (à la Dawkins).

Says it all, really.

He's been moving house, a topic on which he has written a characteristically windy and boring post. So far he has yet to link to any hard-right American bloggers on the topic of why moving house is a bit like the war on terror, so we can assume that normal service has yet to resume.
