TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

Laura Perrins: Chained to the Muslim kitchen sink? Watch out or bonkers Dave will send you home

Emily Watson: The transgender lobby should realise hard cases lead to bad law – and put women at risk

Belinda Brown: Boys have been abandoned by the gender equality bandwagon

Cerberus: The people have to beat the politicians for Britain to quit Europe

Andrew Cadman: Robots may not save us from social collapse

Kathy Gyngell: Cheer up! Only 7 per cent of Brits call themselves feminists

Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Leslie Loftis: Ann Coulter is no longer the pin-up girl of American conservatism, Quinquagesima wrote:

“As a Brit, I first discovered Ann Coulter within the last ten years, when I used to be a frequent business traveller to the US.

I’m as socially conservative as they come, and she’s always struck me as completely bonkers – just saying the first thing that comes into her head, whether or not it’s consistent with the previous thing she said.

She’s an embarrassment to the conservative cause, and I suspect liberals know this which is why she keeps getting airtime.”

Hero of the Week

Veteran actor Sir Michael Caine told the Today programme that it was time to quit the EU, saying that “you cannot be dictated to by thousands of faceless civil servants who make these rules”.

If we have the guts and patriotism of Caine’s Italian Job, they won’t even manage to blow the bloody doors off.

Villain of the Week

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith was at the vanguard of the latest luvvie bandwagon, venting her fury at the lack of BME actors and actresses shortlisted for the Oscars. Isn’t the whole point of the Oscars to commend people for what they have achieved rather than who they are? It’s worth also bearing in mind that going back to 1939, more than 40 African Americans have been nominated for acting performances.

Someone clearly didn’t tell Jada and her pals. If the Oscars starts to have box-ticking quotas installed, what’s the point of them?

Best of the rest

Chris McGovern: We no longer teach our children our island story. No wonder they do not love their country

Alistair Thompson: Corbyn swaps the red flag for the white flag of surrender
