Delingpole has problems talking about science on primetime too. 

He complained of being ‘intellectually raped’ on BBC Horizon after Royal Society president and Nobel laureate Sir Paul Nurse presented him with a medical analogy to illustrate the nature of the scientific consensus on climate:

Were Delingpole suffering from cancer, asked Nurse, would he opt for the  “consensus”  treatment recommended by clinical scientists , or do his own research, and treat himself ?


Which, as can be seen  left Delingpole quite at a loss for words.
