Six of the best
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to, Laura Perrins: If Blair, Brown and Mandelson want to stay, I want to go, Flying Tiger wrote:
Every great thing Britain has ever achieved, from industrialisation, electricity, flushing toilets, Shakespeare, the rule of law – has been achieved as an independent set of islands with independent nations within.
Nothing of any good to Britain or England in particular has come from the “experiment” of shackling a free born set of races to the grovelling surrender monkeys of “Europe”.
TCW Hero of the Week
We never thought we’d do this. Last week she was our villain – and not for the first time. This week she is our hero. Nicky Morgan has given the go ahead for the first new grammar school for five decades.
Okay, officially we have to call it a ‘satellite”. But in reality, it being nine miles from its parent, this will be a new selective school. What’s more, many think this will now open the floodgates for grammar expansion up and down the country. Well done Ms. Morgan. For once, you’ve got it right.
TCW Villain of the Week
Lefty-luvvie Simon Schama played up to the sanctimonious BBC Question Time audience this week, arguing Britain should be taking more refugees. He then took Rod Liddle to task for rightly saying we must do what works, not what a Left-wing conscience demands.
To top it off, Schama also spoke out against grammar schools. All very well for someone who breezed from £18,000 a year Haberdashers’ to Christ’s College, Cambridge. He is a beacon of the whining liberal commentariat. And he is our villain of the week.
