TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

Kathy Gyngell: No heroes to be found in Ashcroft’s hatchet job on Dave

Stella Morabito: Traditional mothers are the true subversives. That’s why the State wants to gag them

Rob Slane: Hold your tongue or we will set the law on you

Chris McGovern: Corbyn’s a threat to good schools. Not that the Tories are much better

Laura Perrins: Corbyn flunks the feminist test

Andrew Cadman: The decline of the West


Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to, Stella Morabito: Only connect to fight back against the PC tyranny, Damaris Tighe wrote:

The bonds of friends and family can resist authoritarianism by creating private nests of independent thought. That’s why the old communist regimes and the newer cultural Marxists try to undermine them by engineering family breakdown and encouraging people to denounce their friends. Modern denouncing operates via ‘defriending’ on social media. And children indoctrinated at school often ‘denounce’ their parents in conversations at home. The views of ordinary people have no real public representation and it’s increasingly difficult for them to express their views in private – the formerly private realm of friendship has become public through social media and the family has increasingly become simply a mother-child duo (no threat to the movers and shakers there).

TCW Hero of the Week

The revolution has begun, according to Simon Danczuk at least. He’s been one of the few Labour MPs to speak against the Corbyn regime this week – while other moderates have fallen silent. He’s said that a ‘concerted effort’ by the new leader’s far-left supporters had now begun to ‘silence’ people like him and ‘drum’ them out of the party.An online petition calling for Mr Danczuk to have the whip withdrawn has gathered thousands of signatures. But he should be commended for being a moderating voice and standing up against the hard-left.

TCW Villain of the Week

Tony Abbott oozed strength, principle and experience. He was a proper conservative. But Australian politics is an ugly place to operate as Malcolm Turnbull’s successful coup illustrates. Turnbull is more of the centre. We would challenge anyone to predict (unless there is a commodity price upturn) whether Turnbull will prove better able to re-ignite the economy or improve its management. But we would put our money on Australia now endorsing gay marriage with the metropolitan Turnbull at the helm. And only this week he has prioritised green energy. He is our villain of the week.
