TCW Week In Review


Six of the best

Jane Kelly: Maggie didn’t have enough class for the V & A

Nick Booth: Nigel Farage responsible for jihadi brides? No, it’s another leftie fantasy promoted by the BBC

Laura Keynes: Find Mr Almost Right and grab him, girls

Craig Byers: The BBC’s biggest bias is against social conservatives

Laura Perrins: A feminist solution to the gender ‘pay gap’. Abolish mothers

Kathy Gyngell: Our ageing war heroes shame the Me generation

Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Kathy Gyngell: Our ageing war heroes shame the Me generation, Earthenware wrote:

These fellows came from a homogeneous society which, although it wasn’t perfect, was at least all one people who believed that their country was in danger.
People would never make the same sacrifices today. Not just because of selfishness (which has always existed) but because there is no longer a homogeneous society to defend. Why risk your life for a country that is largely comprised of people of different ancestry, to whom you owe nothing and to which you have no duty?

TCW Hero of the Week

She usually isn’t our cup of tea. Her opposition to hunting, for example, is so far wide of the mark. But this week Sports Minister Tracey Crouch has said that those families struggling to make ends meet due to tax credit cuts should give up their pay TV.

She couldn’t be more right. Council estates littered with flash cars and satellite dishes undermine the incentive to work and demonstrate that those who work hard aren’t always better off. Tracey is our hero of the week.

TCW Villain of the Week

He once bragged about going to a training camp of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in his gap year, not long after their infamous attack on Ben Gurion Airport when they machine gunned to death 26 people and wounded 80 others. Now he is the Labour Party director of communications, saying that it would have been better if Jihadi John had not have been killed.

It really is remarkable that, in 2015, Seamus Milne has such as key role in the second major UK parliamentary party. The comments he issued on behalf of Labour yesterday on Jihadi John were reprehensible. And he is our villain of the week.

Best of the rest

David Keighley: BBC blows £600,000 of your money defending the indefensible
