We had some exceptional articles on The Conservative Woman last week – and it is hard to choose from them. But in just case your eye was on the World Cup and off the TCW ball, these are some you should make the time to read.
In no particular order:
First up is Chris McGovern’s rather shattering account of the brutality of the French police in their handing of migrants on the French-Italian border, to say nothing of the French Government’s hypocrisy in migration matters. You can read it here.
The significance of this post for me was not simply the ‘need to know about’ issue – the realities of the migrant crisis in the EU – though that was important as the British media has not exactly been all over this one. What struck me was the stark contrast between the blind eye turned to this and the virtue-signalling moral outrage, from our saintly PM down, in respect of so-called deliberate ‘separation of the children’, torn from their virtuous parents’ arms by the evil Donald Trump at the Mexican-US border, which was the half-picture drawn. Which brings me straight to my next pick, the CNN interview Laura highlighted with the long-suffering and obviously very decent border control agent on that border.
If anything exposed the hysteria and emotional incontinence of the mainstream media – for that was what it was – and the huge leaping to conclusions before establishing any facts, it was this honest response to the CNN interviewer’s aspersions both about the border policy and its practice, neither of which turned out to be true; and her gradual climbdown in fact of the calm and sad facts as the agent gave them.
Our readers know that one of the main points of this website is to highlight and focus attention on the disastrous impact of political correctness on public policy; on the way it has undermined fundamental moral values and precepts in the way people in general, and public servants in particular, interpret their social duties and responsibilities. In short, to escape them. In probably one of the best accounts of this on the site to date, Robert James laid bare the emasculation and destruction of policing, and the erosion of meaningful public protection from crime.

This erosion of universal principles against the rise and rise of moral relativism could not be more starkly displayed than in Karen Harradine’s account of the showboating United Nations Human Rights Council.
Is it any wonder America is leaving, she asks, when it refuses to condemn the most corrupt and despicable regimes while targeting democracies that have a rule of law. It brought the uncompromising facts home to me.
But to leave you on a lighter note and if you would rather start your day with a laugh, if you missed Alan Ashworth on the sheer lunacy of our times, and our now frankly dotty constabulary, then here is your chance
It made me LOL.
