Rats for Hitchens

An appeal has been launched by assorted bumsuckers (as Orwell would have called them) to send money to Christopher Hitchens for the purpose of  buying him drinks. Hitchens, gallant heroic chap that he is, claims he will send the money to the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (curiously overlooking, in his desire to aid the Kurds, the PKK... now there's a thing...), which does seem rather similar to pissing it up the wall. Harry Hutton believes that this towering figure in world literature deserves better, less wasteful and more suitably literary gifts.
Yes, it's Rats for Hitchens Appeal! Please, give as much as you can afford. Hitchens must have his rats.
