TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

Chris McGovern: Has Nicky Morgan begun to realise how dreadful are our schools?

Mark Ellse: Osborne’s living wage will be a greater disaster than Brown’s bloated tax credits

Laura Perrins: A child conceived through rape is no less worthy of love

Belinda Brown: Men don’t need to marry to get sex

Rob Slane: God as She is yet another feminist assault on masculinity

Kathy Gyngell: Celebs behind the latest PC mental health stunt are the problem not the solution

Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to, Kathy Gyngell: Spare us the PC drive to plaster feeble women’s sport all over TV, Realfish wrote:

Ideological? Yes, certainly. But women’s sport also gets the BBC out of a spot. It’s much cheaper to screen than real sport – which the BBC has largely abandoned – which means that there’s more money left over for the Corporation to pay huge salaries to ‘their great and their good’, like those (plural) paid to Alan Yentob.

TCW Hero of the Week

We have already had US State Department officials warning of the perils to Britain of Brexit. One even was formerly employed by the European Commission – and we are sure to hear many more warnings from over the Atlantic. But this week Jeb Bush joined other sound American right wingers in saying the UK has nothing to fear.

“Great Britain is a sovereign nation, and they must make this decision about their relationship with Europe on their own.” He told Breitbart, “if Great Britain made that decision of course the U.S. would work with them on a trade agreement.” Well done Jeb. Ronald would be proud.

TCW Villain of the Week
It was meant to be a unified show of strength. A demonstration of the anti-Tory hatred felt by almost all young people. A call to end tuition fees.

Instead, the rain came, most stayed at home and this week’s protests turned out to be just a few hundred anarchists intent on smashing up the capital. They won no allies. And nor did Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell by addressing them. He should be ashamed to be associated with such a baying mob. Can you imagine this neo-communist running HM Treasury?

Best of the rest

Kathy Gyngell: Don’t mourn for the passing of Donaldson. Mourn for the BBC he represented

Edgar Johnson: Masked student marauders shoot themselves in both feet. Politeness trumps brutality every time
