Intimidated by Islam

Dear Editor

Has Speaker of the House Sir Lindsay Hoyle inadvertently admitted that this country has caved to violent Islam?

In his apology for the chaos in the House of Lies over his decision to allow the Labour amendment to the SNP motion for a Gaza ceasefire, Hoyle said, explaining the reason for his decision, ‘because I am very, very concerned about the security of all members. I was very concerned and I am still concerned . . . that’s why the meetings I’ve had today is [sic] about the security of members, their families and their people involved.’

Prior to the above sentences, he said that he wanted to give the widest range of propositions on which to express a view.  One might infer from that that he wanted to help Labour to shore up its Muslim support by giving Labour the opportunity to show its support for Gazans, and also project a sympathy with the ingrained anti-Semitic predilections of its target audience.

The crux of his speech for us citizens was the apparent caving to threat and violence – a cowardly acceptance of force over reason and morality.  He has said something no party leader or our government has the courage to not just say, but also stand against and fight.

That is the state of affairs our politicians have brought us to.

Vanishing excess deaths (1)

Dear Editor

Following the Government’s failure to act over, even deny, the significant excess deaths, and to continue to thwart the efforts of Andrew Bridgen to secure a debate in Parliament, I note that the ONS has last week revised the way in which excess deaths are now to be calculated. This results in a massive decrease in the number, and is clearly an attempt to silence critics by manipulating the data to fit the narrative, in much the same was as happened in the past regarding inflation and unemployment figures.

This is a disgrace, but I have not seen anywhere any criticism of this cynical attempt to ‘make the problem go away’.

Vanishing excess deaths (2)

Dear Editor

I see that Scotland has adjusted its figures to remove 5,000 excess deaths. I don’t think these sleights of hand are fooling anyone. 
When the vaccines were announced I did some research into the history of mRNA technology and decided I would wait and see what data was published. I was not happy that they were issued under emergency authorisation as experimental vaccinations. When the MHRA started producing the Yellow Card data, I was immediately struck both by the high numbers of events but also the vast variety of events from blindness to thrombocytopenias. It didn’t take a genius to work out that all was not well with these injections, but to my horror the vast majority of people throughout the world put out their arms without hesitation and did not even question if there were any risks involved.

I find it incomprehensible how this has been allowed to happen and why even now there is no attempt by the authorities to have a moratorium on the vaccines and do a proper investigation into excess deaths.

Where would we be without you?

Britain’s weak defences

Dear Editor

The world is now at its most dangerous with the Russia/Ukraine war entering its third year and the Hamas/Israel war showing no sign of a solution. China has its eye on Taiwan. North Korea is testing its missiles. It was said by the Roman writer Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus: ‘Let him who desires peace prepare for war.’ 

The UK now has only 142,560 in the armed forces and they are ill-equipped. Preparing to prevent war will cost £trillions so we should stop squandering our taxes on a changing climate which is in the distant future, whereas the threat of World War 3 is now. Think of the cost of all those highly-paid people on the Climate Gravy Train and those with ‘climate’ in their job description. They should be sacked. Foreign aid should be stopped since it ranges between £5.13billion and £11.4billion every year. Housing those entering the UK illegally is £3billion a year, so deport them. The £trillions saved would pay for tanks, rockets and aircraft and enable us, from a position of strength, to deter any would-be aggressors.

Whistle-blowers have become conspiracy theorists

Dear Editor

Can anyone remember that prior to 2020 everyone felt that it was important for those in the NHS wanting to raise concerns to be given protection to speak out without fear of repercussion? This followed a number of scandals within hospitals where care standards had been appalling and severe injury and deaths had taken place. The media were quick to pick up and report these issues.

Now it seems that anyone with concerns is a ‘conspiracy theorist’ or an ‘anti-vaxxer’. 

Was complete madness an unrecognised side effect of Covid-19 infection?

Perhaps it is more likely that it is simply too difficult for people to accept that by accepting an experimental injection they may have inflicted long-term harm on themselves, or that they are thankful that it happened to someone else.

Whistleblowers still need protection. If healthcare is to be safe we need to applaud those who raise concerns, not try to demonise them.

TCW has kept me going

Dear Kathy 

Thank you for your weekly resume with which I agree 100 per cent.

Let me first say that I’m actually a ‘nobody’. I’m not recognised or famous or anything – I’m British, born 1952, father and grandfather fought in both wars, raised in a hardworking Christian home by united and loving parents. I’m sure that’s not unusual. I went to a Cof E primary  school, grammar school , full grant to university, worked hard as a teacher for 38 years, imploring and encouraging my students to think and reason critically (something not encouraged nowadays), and I mourn for my country and the demise caused by the left, wokery and mass immigration .

It was Mark Steyn who alerted me to TCW and I eagerly signed up for your daily emails. 

You have been my main source of truth, common sense, incisive journalism and light.

My eyes to the corruption of politics, policing and health services were opened in the so-called pandemic. It was a shock at first, I can tell you!

Last June I attended the Better Way conference in Bath and was honoured to meet two of my heroes – Neil Oliver and Andrew Bridgen. On returning home and coming down from Cloud Nine (realising that I was not alone in my overview of things since 2020) it has been daily TCW that keeps me going, and I want to thank you most sincerely for you and the team and everything that you do.

God bless you

Thank you, Laura

Dear TCW

Laura’s articles are unfailingly excellent and as a so-called ‘boomer’ myself I couldn’t agree more with her piece on Jenni Murray. 
Thank you, Laura, for so eloquently expressing what so many of us think.
Thank you, TCW, for your bold and important platform.
