And how could we debate this when we don't even have a common meaning for "cleverness" [your wording not mine]

And you specifically said Ali G, not Cohen.
Well, you have your own views on what cleverness is. I will have mine.

BTW: Ali G is Sasha Baren Cohen.

A fictious character's "supposed" cleverness cannot then be compared to someone who is human.

Emotional quotient

Fair enough.

I have read about a so-called Encephalisation Quotient which measures 'intelligence' by finding the ratio between brain size and body mass. So it is used to compare interspecific intelligence.

We have smaller brains than hippos, for example, but due to their increased 'bulk' we have a considerably greater EQ.

That's not a very productive start to the debate.

1. Well duh...therefore I use Cohen.

2. You used teh exact words: "Ali G" or Tony Blair. You should have made it amply clear that it was Cohen you were talking about.

Yours meaning a number reflecting the increase in brain size over and beyond that explainable by an increase in body size. Well I was referring to EQ, Emotional intelligence, quotient etc. that variance of EQ.

How is the comment "define cleverness" a productive way to start the debate when the debate ultimately revolves around what your opinions are of judging one's "cleverness" ?

2.) It was clear. Ali G is Sasha Baren Cohen. Ali G isn't a character in a book. He is the guy on TV acting like a ghetto boy. That guy who acts as a ghetto boy has a brain. that is the brain of sasha baren cohen because he is sasha baren cohen.

Well first of all, you obviously thought long and hard about this topic.

1. We have a problem, your question was "Who was cleverer" now, since we have differing opinions of the word "cleverness" we cannot and will not come to an agreement, that much from you I know.

2. The portrayal of Ali G by SBC is different to SBC himself. By saying Ali G, you were referring to the character potrayed by SBC. From that it was clear.

You are clearly back pedalling furiously now.
