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.

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.

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?
