Six of the best
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to, Laura Perrins: ‘Consenting to sex is like having a cup of tea.’ Our barmy DPP is not joking, Jenny L wrote:
Thank you for this excellent piece. The DPP should be free from prejudice and eminently fair. Alison Saunders spectacularly fails to be unbiased. Her opinions should not colour her judgement, but they clearly do. According to feminism, women – unlike men – should NOT be held accountable for the choices they make. How fair is that? There is a systematic discrimination against men, and I am fed up with it. It insults all the men in my life who I love and respect. Feminism is gynocentric injustice and an insult to our justice system.
TCW Hero of the Week
The race for the Republican nomination is hotting up in the States – and Carly Fiorina is going from strength to strength. She’s put Donald Trump to the sword in the debates. And now she’s standing up against abortion.
As Sarah Smith wrote this week, “what makes her distinctly different from the leftist feminists of her generation and that of her Democratic rival Hilary Clinton is again her exceptionally strong and vocal pro-life position. Even as a woman who made history in a predominately male industry, she does not think abortion is pro-woman; and she is not stepping away from the controversy that causes.” She is our hero of the week.
TCW Villain of the Week
Odious lefty and B-list celeb Charlotte Church appeared on Question Time this week, in which she blamed the Syrian conflict on climate change. You really couldn’t make it up.
“Climate change was a big factor in how the Syrian conflict came about because from 2006 to 2011 they experienced one of the worst droughts in its history… which apparently did contribute to the conflict there today,” she said. Nothing at all to do with radical Islam, or Assad’s brutal regime, or the Arab Spring. No, none of that. Church epitimises the sanctimonious Left, so wide of the mark on so many issues. She’s our villain of the week.
