During the lunch break on the second day of the International Legal Conference on Freedom of Speech and Religion, James Cohen of the Canadian chapter of IFPS interviewed Lord Pearson, a member of the House of Lords and a leader of UKIP, at the Capitol in Washington D.C.
More fully, Lord Pearson is Malcolm Everard MacLaren Pearson, Baron Pearson of Rannoch. Those who describe him as English are mistaken, for he is in fact a Scot. I asked him if he took offense at being called English, and he said no, that it didn’t bother him at all. That led us into a discussion about the movement for Scottish independence, which is a topic for another time.
