Fiction or fact?
The item in Saturday’s TCW by Janice Davis about Kaliningrad is exactly what everyone should read.
I served in the Royal Navy from 1962 to 1975, initially as a seaman and then a fixed-wing pilot.
At a weekend gathering in 2016 of elderly ‘catapults and wires’ aircrew a colleague introduced to me a paperback fiction book entitled ‘2017 War with Russia’. Written by General Sir Richard Shirreff, it had just been published. By the time I bought my copy the ‘2017’ had been removed from the title – although it remains in the foreword.
The author knows what he is talking about – he had been NATO’s Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe. He tells the tale of the impending campaign in the Baltic states. The book is dedicated ‘To my friends in Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. Men and women who understand the price of freedom’.
The first sentence of the preface is ‘The war with Russia began in the Ukraine in March 2014’. I am reading it yet again – and I would advise your readers to do the same. May the outcome of 2022 match that of the fictional 2017.
PS I am sure Janice Davis will have read this book.
The vaccine trance
Today I listened to a learned person who has said that 10 per cent of the population in the USA have not entered into the mRNA experimental injection. I don’t live in the USA but I have decided not to partake in the experiment; I feel that it is a dangerous road to follow and I felt that I should tell friends, family and anyone who will listen to do their research before having the injection. I have done just that, lost the friendship of many people and members of my family to the point that some have been particularly nasty and spiteful; so be it; so I have backed away from society.
However, the gentleman to whom I was listening asked that people like me to have the courage and be out there. We don’t have to say anything more, because those who know how we feel will have a constant reminder of the warnings when they see us and hopefully they will come out of the trance and do some research for the sake of their own health and the health of those around them, especially their loved ones.

Britain needs you, Mr Trump
Re Kathy Gyngell’s article about Boris Johnson on Tuesday.
I’m sure Boris Johnson must have noticed that several former politicians such as Nick Clegg and David Miliband have done very well financially in their new American careers, so presumably he is just waiting for the right moment to leave politics. That means the Conservative Party will need a new leader. I think this time they need to find someone who is both honest and committed and hopefully independently wealthy. If 2024 doesn’t work out for him, might Donald Trump be interested in the job?
Follow the money
Your Moderna piece today is spot on.
The mRNA scam continues but at an even more sinister level.
Surely the complete failure of the Covid scam and failure of the vaccines to achieve anything other than to shift money from A to B is evident to us all . . . and the government? They must know . . . they are facilitating it.
It’s always about the money I guess – unforgivable. Truth has to prevail.
Keep up the great work.
Who is bankrolling the pro-abortion media coverage?
Abortion is a multi-million-pound industry. It would be interesting and revealing to discover whether the BBC, Sky, Daily Telegraph and the Times etc have accepted funding from abortion companies that are part of the corporate world resisting the Supreme Court ruling. It’s known that Gates bankrolled the media to promote the vaccine, therefore it’s a fair surmise that corporate finance dictates media coverage of abortion. The SNP has announced measures to protect abortion clinics in Scotland. Why? Nothing has changed in the UK to make this necessary. It’s yet another issue weaponised by the left.
Media reporting has been inaccurate, misleading and universally supportive of the pro-choice movement. No reference is made to the 65 million-plus foetuses that have perished in the US and 10million in the UK over half a century. It’s on a monumental scale. No reference is made of the disposal of a foetus, lab experimentation on foetuses, tissue used in the production of vaccines, the lifelong regrets of women (and men) who terminated life.
Waving placards and shouting isn’t going to change minds on this subject in the UK. The argument for at least reducing the number of deaths has to be both ethical and scientific. It also means building a society that cares for the young, regardless of how they came to be in the world. In all honesty there are too many uncared children in Britain that pro-choice can justifiably point to for justifying abortion.

At last I fit in!
I remembered your site tonight and started reading some articles. I have been reading the Spectator, but why am I bothering when you’ve got so many fantastic articles?
I thought I was radical, but on your site I’m mainstream!
Javid the Child Catcher
The NHS and Savage Jabbit trying to lure children with their ‘Superheroes’ posters reminds me of the Child Catcher and his lollipops in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!
In light of the conflict in Ukraine, Kwasi Kwarteng, Secretary of State for the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) announced in April that a review would be conducted by the British Geological Survey (BGS) into the moratorium that currently prohibits shale gas fracking. The BGS should be reminded that Kwasi Kwarteng said on June 23 ‘We cannot – and will not – be blackmailed by dictators with their hands on the gas taps. Energy produced in Britain is the safest option.’ The BGS should also be reminded that Friends of the Earth (FoE) are not to be trusted. FoE said fracking used toxic chemicals, that extracting shale gas caused cancer, water to catch fire, poisoned underground water, increased radioactivity and caused ‘earthquakes’. The chemicals used are sand and a small amount of soap and bleach found under every kitchen sink. Liverpool University equated the mild tremors experienced during fracking trials as equivalent to sitting down heavily on an office chair. The Advertising Standard Authority said that all of FoE’s scaremongering allegations were unproven and misleading. BGS must quickly recommend shale gas extraction.
Thank you, TCW
Your article Never Again? Israel’s mask mob echo the Holocaust moved me to tears.
Thank you for your courage. As a Christian with Hungarian family members murdered during the Holocaust I cannot even begin to express how grateful I feel for all that you do. I am humbled by your courage. I believe TCW has done more for humanity than any other publication in the world.
|Net Zero benefit|
Lord Frost is one of few politicians to confront the impact of the Government’s dash for net zero. It will take around 45 SMRs (Small Modular Reactors) just to replace the fossil fuelled power stations and aging nukes, which currently keep the lights on when there is little sun or wind.National Grid (NG) estimates that it will all cost around £3 trillion (£120,000 per household) to decarbonise the Grid, while upgrading it to carry the extra load from EV chargers and Heat Pumps. It is clearly not sensible to penalise fossil fuels – until alternatives are in place and legislating to phase them out must be deferred – based on reality.
As Lord Frost indicates, we will need to keep burning gas for a long time to come.
