Six of the best
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Laurence Hodge: Nature decrees that women tend to regret the one night stand, Jenny L wrote:
I like this. I think it is a brave article for a man to write. I also think it is a very good, very wise, and much needed piece. A long time ago now, when I was a teenager, I was taught by my Mother (who respected men and adored my Dad) that young men might be attracted to me, and because young men had a high sex-drive I was never to give any young man the wrong impression because that would not be fair on him. ( Please note her concern that men too were vulnerable) I, the female, needed to be the wise one. This is unheard of in today’s feminist society.
This old-fashioned wisdom has been overthrown by feminism and turned upside down. It leaves men very vulnerable, which is of course what radical feminists want!
TCW Hero of the Week
Quentin Letts’s Radio 4 programme, delving into the scripture of The Book of Common Prayer, was fabulous this week. The book is powerful and stirs the spirit. The vocabulary still forms the backbone of the English language.
The Book’s poetry and majesty is indeed much like Letts himself. He remains one of our finest sketch writers and political commentators. He is our hero of the week.
TCW Villain of the Week
The hypocrisy of the Left really is something to behold. Floundering Labour leadership contender, Andy Burnham, has called David Cameron out for “dog-whistling” on immigration by referring to a swarm of migrants.
This is the same Mr Burnham (who looks set to be unsuccessful in his leadership bid for the second time in five years) who said in 2010: “There’s still an ambivalence among some in Labour about discussing immigration. I’ve been accused of dog-whistle politics for doing so.” You couldn’t make it up. One wonders if flip-flop Andy would be any better than Corbyn?
