Kathy’s TCW week in review


MY TCW week started a day late and in a bit of a panic. I’d taken my eye off the ball over the bank holiday and got behind on getting copy commissioned, reviewed and sorted for the rest of the week. We’d prepared a cracking start for the Monday: Niall McCrae’s analysis of Sadiq Khan ‘the globalist’, showing the boxes the successful amoral modern politician must tick – a multiculturalist, climate ideologue, trans promoter, open border and 15-minute city, WEF puppet. Never mind the inconsistency and contradiction. Roger Willbourn’s real election count article on the same day – the one the MSM didn’t think to do – revealed the perils of voter apathy (how few votes are needed for a chancer like Khan to get in when there is a 40 per cent turnout at best) and was also an eye-opener. 

However with the brilliant Margaret’s efficiency it all fell into place in time and instead of empty pages on Tuesday and Wednesday we published more first-rate articles, notably the third part of Karen’s series on the ‘Hope Not Hate’ charity which should be stripped of its status and Neville Hodgkinson’s update on the gradual leak into the mainstream press of vaccine injury and harm, a huge new Cleveland study on vaccine ineffectiveness and Ed Dowd’s compelling excess deaths data analysis.

Looking back at the week now we should have dealt with photo ID which for the first time was demanded to vote at these elections – a step nearer to digital identity that Niall McCrae pointed out last year. Something else we never voted for. How many people turned up without it, like a furious friend who had no idea and when his representations were to no avail with the polling station staff told them they could stuff his vote?

And no wonder. It’s a bit rich insisting on photo ID when none such is required for a postal vote which is, would you believe, how most people voted this time. According to the Electoral Commission if my eyes didn’t deceive me, over two-thirds of the May election turnout was by post. As I was told by a reader, ‘It is well known that the postal vote is abused and many have called for it to be afforded only to those registered disabled.’ He relayed a startling example told to him by campaigners for Reform’s Ben Habib during his by-election campaign in Wellingborough. They had met an Asian shop owner who was only too proud to tell them he had four votes just for himself. Yes, four votes for one person. They were in such disbelief he went and got his polling cards to show them. They showed:

First name / Middle Name /Surname

Surname / Middle Name / First Name 

Middle Name / First Name / Surname

Middle Name / Surname / First Name 

My correspondent believes this practice is widespread in the Asian / Islamic community. But whoever it is, it’s the system (which traces back to Tony Blair in 2000) that allows it. The postal vote is without doubt a recipe for electoral fraud – for the simple fact that there can be no scrutiny as to the identity of the person putting an ‘X’ in the box. Voter intimidation and bribery takes place far from polling stations. Only the privacy of the polling booth ensures against it. How many Muslim women turned up in person with their ID, I wonder, let alone any in full burka who’d have to unmask to demonstrate it, in order to avail themselves of this ‘fundamental’ of British democracy?

Yes, this is just part of a total collapse in standards. Reports of stabbings and acid attacks arrive daily in my local Nextdoor email before they reach the national press – if they do. The decapitation of a schoolboy in Hainault by a dual Spanish-Brazilian national made the media for a few days. But the BBC put to bed the news I got on my local email two days before that a woman was stabbed to death when she tried to fight off a man trying to steal her handbag in Burnt Oak Broadway. They said the police described it as ‘just an isolated incident’. So that’s all right, then. A Nextdoor post the very next day reported an acid attack on a 15-year-old boy. Let’s see if the police and the BBC think this is worth reporting at all. We need a recorded Daily Death Toll – like they did in the US on their main broadcast channels every day for the soldiers killed in action in Vietnam. For it is indeed a battlefield out there.

Psychotic and threatening behaviour is the new normal – all but licensed by the police. We’ve seen it too on streets worldwide in the Hamas ‘protests’, across university campuses and on the streets of Malmo. These are no normal student protests. Parallels drawn with the anti-Vietnam war protests of 1968 are misconceived (I remember it as a fun day out in London with a lot of shouting and singing and chanting in Grosvenor Square. I was there, young and naïve, but I don’t remember being alarmed by anything). These are different. First there’s the third-party funding and organisation behind today’s version – Soros again and other establishment subversives.  How many activists are embedded who are not students?

And that’s not all. Last week made me think there is something more fundamental at play that’s made this generation of young people much angrier, harder and almost entirely without empathy. They are doing more than conforming to the latest fashion or trend. They are doing it with gusto. Something has happened to their psyche. The outburst of personalised Jew hatred on campuses in the US, Australia and here in the UK, described in this Quadrant op-ed  suggests we may have bred a generation of psychopaths. (Why and how is for another post but, in the West at least, we may be witnessing a horrible outcome of the silent 30-year childcare revolution – of separation anxiety and maternal deprivation – driving them either mad or bad). How other than psychotic are we to describe students who demand the genocide of the Jews or call for the beheading of the president of George Washington University and think they can defend it as their right to free speech? How else are we explain what’s been happening in Malmo, which Mark Steyn describes as the first Muslim city of Sweden, where 10,000 protesters think it is OK to terrorise, threaten and bully one delicate-looking 20-year-old Russian-Israeli girl? Did any of these protesters ever read The Crucible?Were they taught about the Ku Klux Klan? And this, in the words of the strange automaton Greta Thunberg, who joined in the terrifying demonstrations against Eden Golan, is how ‘young people are leading the way and showing the world how we should react to this’. 

My week ended in complete agreement with the Dutch MEP Rob Roos, who’s never watched the Eurovision song contest in his life but said he would vote – for Eden Golan ‘because I am done with is disgusting Jew hatred’. 

I always promise to end on a good note and Rob Roos’s tweet is one. Another is young Hen Mazzig’s tweet that showed the world what was going on right outside Eden Golan’s hotel room. Bullying on an industrial scale. May the force be with him. 

As for me, the battle goes on. I caught up by the end of the week and have my hands back on the rudder of ‘The Fighting TCW’ – the bullies ever in our sight line – ready with a range of hard-hitting articles on de-civilisation and who and what is responsible, from our fantastic team of writers.
