TCW Hero of the Week
The journalist Melanie Phillips this week added her view to the growing debate on forcing young children head first into the transgender debate.

TCW Villain of the Week
Sweden’s National Police Commissioner Dan Eliasson represented the worst of the politically naïve establishment this week when he commented on the horrific murder of a social worker at a migrant centre in Sweden.
