No, Simon Schama, people worried about gang rape and FGM aren’t ‘obsessed with sex’

Hardly anything is less likely to keep people reading than to mention an exciting evening in Toronto. But stick with me.

Because last Friday night in Toronto there was a debate (organised by the Munk debates, which can be watched in full here) on the great migration crisis which pitted Louise Arbour and Simon Schama against Nigel Farage and Mark Steyn. Regular readers will know my views of Simon Schama on this matter, so I was looking forward to watching this exchange in the hope of seeing him get what in technical debate-speak is known as his ‘arse handed to him on a plate’. And sure enough it came, courtesy of my fellow free-speecher, Mark Steyn – one of the few people around who knows free speech isn’t just something you talk about, but something you do.
