Six of the best
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Gerald Warner: Cultural Marxism is colonising Western boardrooms, John Thomas wrote:
“Cultural Marxism is colonising Western boardrooms” – well, it has colonised everything else, so now it’s the turn of the boardrooms. Surely, the great advantage that businesses have over, say, academia (which was colonised by the cultural Marxists several decades ago) is that businesses full of people put there by PC ‘positive discrimination’ and the like, will simply go bust; many of the academic organisations (I know this from long experience) would have been bust long ago had they ever been exposed to economic reality. I bet the NHS and BBC are the same, as both live off the taxpayer, as ‘benefit scroungers’.
TCW Hero of the Week
Dan Hannan MEP has recently returned from leading a group of 40 MPs, MEPs and party officials from 15 countries to Catania in Sicily, assisting the Italian Red Cross at a landing of 600 migrants in the port of Messina. Writing with humanity but in reality, he said:
“The belief that Germany is relaxing its policy is bound to lead to a level of migration that surpasses anything seen so far. Refugees and economic migrants will be thrown together in a rush. Some will be trampled, and some boats will be overturned. […] I’m not sure we’re prepared for any of this. Perhaps logic should have its place after all.”
TCW Villain of the Week
Angela Merkel, having ignored the Growth & Stability Pact rules to Germany’s advantage over the Euro, is now subverting the EU’s rules on asylum, so it’s reasonable to ask what on earth is the point of rules at all?
She is inveigling the rest of the EU to bend to her will which, to the extent that she is successful, makes those member states complicit in rule-breaking at which point there cease to be any rules and the EU becomes a banana republic only without the bananas. It really is a shambles. And Angela is our villain of the week.
