Jim undermines his own point that we need more RDs by calling him "extreme" without any reasons and comparing with Thatcher/communism (didn't get that bit).

Also, he has no balls (sorry). Criticising Sarah Palin is easy. Criticising Islam isn't, and Jim gets it dangerously wrong by equating Islamic stupidity with the relatively benign European superstitions.

We don't need scientists to bring dogmatic moderation. Apart from being wrong, I don't think this kind of moderation helps society. No, I think we need scientists to bring militant objectivity.

EDIT: In any case, I look forward to seeing his TV programme.
