TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

Andrew Cadman: Creating an alternative to the EU would galvanise Tory Euroscepticism

Nick Booth: The BBC needs to go on a diet. Start by stripping out pointless jobs

Chris McGovern: Ofsted chief Wilshaw trusts the State not poorer parents

Kathy Gyngell: The British Army has triumphed since Waterloo. But now it quails before the feminists

Belinda Brown: Part-time soldiering and feminisation weaken our army

Laura Perrins: Women must do as they are told. Study science, forget children and earn a lot


Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Andrew Cadman: Creating an alternative to the EU would galvanise Tory Euroscepticism, Bogbrush wrote:

I think another point is that nobody likes a whiner, and all the anti-EU message seems to be is whining. It switches people off, and leaves the argument wide open to the picture that life outside the EU is dangerous and scary.

People need a positive message: fewer moans, more opportunity, and a clearer articulation of exactly why it is that leaving the EU can create more jobs, more economic success, more control, more good stuff, not just less bad.

Don’t get me wrong, I would vote to leave in a minute but not everyone is as relaxed about going it alone – most people are easily scared and will opt for the rubbish EU they are currently alive and well in against the scary future that the BBC, multi-national corporations and the Government will push at them.

TCW Hero of the Week

Labour MPs have hammered Harriet Harman this week over her response to the government’s welfare reform bill. It’s a pretty sad reflection of the current state of the Labour Party that Harriet Harman is taking the centrist position and fighting and increasingly far-left Labour rank and file.

Harman believes her party needs to send out a message to voters that it has learnt from its election defeat – and that it cannot continue with its blanket opposition to the budget changes that George Osborne is introducing. Too right. A shame for her that Jeremy Corbyn and his bandwagon don’t agree.

TCW Villain of the Week

Once upon a time, the SNP said they wouldn’t involve themselves in English only matters. They even pledged not to vote on fox hunting as it was devolved to the regional assemblies. Not anymore.

This week, Nicola Sturgeon and her party have foiled the Conservative Party’s plans to relax the hunting ban and now they are considering ambushing Cameron over the Assisted Dying bill. Cameron has made it clear that he doesn’t support euthanasia or assisted dying – and quite rightly. Ms. Sturgeon should be ashamed of herself.
