Democracy in Decay: The great trans rights betrayal


ONE would imagine that it would not be often that TCW would agree with the feminist Julie Bindel, but she deserves significant credit for her stance on women’s rights against aggressive trans activists, and more recently as an advocate for Direct Democracy, stating that we need a referendum on the trans rights issue.

Last week Bindel earned further praise, writing an excoriating article in the Telegraph about the betrayal of women on trans rights by Gillian Keegan and her fellow MPs. Keegan now grandly claims – conveniently now the tide is turning – that she will no longer call trans men ‘women’. How noble of her. Her offence is especially egregious because, as Education Secretary, she was in a salient position to confront the spread of the trans mania throughout schools and to put a stop to the potentially severe and irreversible life-changing consequences this mad ideology can have on vulnerable children. The fact that neither her colleagues nor the Westminster commentariat seem to think that she should resign in disgrace speaks volumes. Bindel also claims to have a trove of private emails sent by both Labour and Tory politicians saying that, while they privately agree with her stance, they couldn’t say so publicly for fear of social ostracisation.

So, people at Cabinet rank put their own social status and careers above the mutilation of children. The grotesque selfishness, narcissism and self-absorption beggars belief, but this callous indifference to the plight or wishes of the little people is now deeply embedded in Westminster. Elections are regarded as little more than an annoying pantomime where one branch of the elite or the other makes promises to the lower orders which they have no intention of keeping, a façade for what is now a shamocratic system they regard as their personal private game, networking and collecting sinecures along the way while all the time parading their luxury beliefs to impress their peers, the trans rights debacle being just the latest grim example.

Another issue where those luxury beliefs have exerted their baleful influence is mass immigration, which the country has never wanted but had it imposed anyway, irreversibly changing its character. Barbara Roche, the immigration minister under Tony Blair who started it all, smugly stated in 2011 that the resulting diversity of London made her feel comfortable. Of course it’s just one statement, but the fact that she was not elected on that platform, nor what the British people thought about it, seemed to have never mattered to her at all. What matters is how is how it made her feel.

It’s the same on issue after issue – huge damage is done to those regarded as the lower orders in society while the elite polish their haloes. After trans rights and immigration, Net Zero is probably the next most notorious example. Rather like the ancient Chinese custom amongst the wealthy of growing long, decorated fingernails to signify they didn’t need to use their hands for practical purposes, the luxury belief class seem to compete to produce ever more rarefied political ideas on the basis that the more impractical and destructive they are, the higher the social status of those who advocate them.

Nowhere madder did this get, or hopefully ever can get, than the idea that a man can become a woman, or a woman can become a man. The consequences have been an abomination, but what mattered was the social status they afforded amongst those who preside over our corrupt and decadent system. Bindel signs off her Telegraph article stating she doesn’t see any guarantees that those like her won’t be ignored again. She is right, and that is why her identification of Direct Democracy as the answer is correct.
