We still have Peter Hitchens, who won the Orwell Prize for Journalism in 2010[0], two years before his elder brother was memorialised in 2012[1]. The two disagreed vehemently on a great deal of fundamental stuff, but Peter posseses all of Christopher's independence of mind, perhaps more, and has plenty to say because of that.

For the life of me, I haven't been able to take Peter seriously. Perhaps his long standing position at the Daily Express and Daily Mail has something to do with that...

I understand. I have taken to reading his column almost exclusively via RSS. But it is worth noting that he works for the Mail on Sunday, which sounds similar but is editorially independent of the Daily Mail. They now share a website.

I believe he left the Daily Express having become dissatisfied with the paper, though I am entirely unsure of that.
