TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

Emily Watson: The Danish Girl is brilliant propaganda and another blow to human happiness

Paul T Horgan: The Soviet gulag was just as evil as the Nazi gas chamber

Cerberus: Immigration is a key part of the case for quitting the EU

Kathy Gyngell: Shameless society puts baby at risk of battering

Alistair Thompson: Is Cameron now going to betray our troops?

Jane Kelly: The shock is not the 100 attacks on German women. It is the liberal media cover-up

Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Laura Perrins: Once parents protected children. Now it’s a job for quangoland, David wrote:

“A suitably short, clear article rightly dismissing yet another, doomed to failure, attempt to prop up society after one of its main supports was been deliberately destroyed. 

There can be no effective substitute for two loving, married parents, preferably the biological mother and father of their children. But adopted families based on that model can work well of course. There are none so blind as those that refuse to see how truly broken are the sad results of the sexual revolution.”

TCW Hero of the Week

David Mellor excellently summed up the predicament that we face on the Today programme this week , saying that “everyone who loves politics is going to be jaundiced when a career backbencher and serial extremist like Jeremy Corbyn has become the Leader of the Opposition and when a principle-free zone like the Prime Minister…has no deeply held opinions”.

Rather topical in a week when the PM continues to peddle a renegotiation based on thin air whilst Corbyn conducted the most lengthy and bizarre reshuffle since universal suffrage.

TCW Villain of the Week

It seems the PC, gender equality bandwagon has reached Down Under. Mel McLaughlin, the journalist who was asked for a drink by cricket player Chris Gayle while conducting an interview, has expressed her outrage. West Indian Gayle was criticised after asking the presenter for a drink and then telling her “don’t blush baby” during a post-match interview.

McLaughlin says she was “disappointed” and that she wants “equality”. We think she should get a sense of humour. Gayle has been fined and lambasted in the press. It was okay for tennis pin-up Maria Sharapova to proposition a male journalist at the Aussie Open though…

Best of the rest

Mark Ellse: The odd thing is that Oxbridge entrance is entirely on merit

Laura Perrins: Once parents protected children. Now it’s a job for quangoland
