Reader’s Comment of the Week

I like Jane’s posts and articles.
She writes with clarity over WHAT is happening, while capturing the bewilderment of WHY we are allowing these things to happen. There are others who do that, but almost uniquely, she manages to describe sympathetically another important phenomenon: that the adverse effects of multiculturalism (and let us be honest, what we mean is Islamification) are distributed very unevenly in our society. Whole communities – Wakefield, Tower Hamlets, Small Heath – have been surrendered. There is a very damaging paradox for those close to the centres of power or influence: the less one is affected by the consequences of Islamic separatist demands, the easier one finds it to call for tolerance and understanding – but only, of course, from the indigenous community.
I was driving early in the morning following the atrocity, and listening to the BBC radio coverage, and I shared her incredulity over this glaring hole in coverage and commentary. Will this prove a tipping point? These behaviours are so ingrained, now, I fear not.
TCW Hero of the Week
He is the finest political interviewer on television. And yesterday, as Dan Hodges rightly commented, he delivered the finest opening to a British current affairs programme ever. Andrew Neil spoke for us all when he denounced the “Islamist scumbags” behind the Paris terror attacks.
“You will lose,” he told them. “In a thousand year’s time, Paris, that glorious city of lights, will still be shining bright as will every other city like it. And you will be as dust, along with the ragbag of fascist Nazis and Stalinists that previously dared to challenge democracy and failed.” Amen to that.
TCW Villain of the Week
The Paris attacks were all the fault of Western foreign policy. So says neo-communist and Corbyn ally Ken Livingstone, newly installed as co-chair of the Labour defence review. It took him just two days to take aim at the French for their foreign interventions.
“All these terrorist attacks, the statements they make on their websites and so on are all about foreign policy… it’s the endless interventions of Britain and America and France in Arab countries that has come back to haunt us.” Not only does he want to rid Britain of her nuclear deterrent – he makes excuses for mass murder in the name of Islam. Any respectable political party would have nothing to do him.
