Six of the best
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…
