Six of the best
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Paul T Horgan: The Guardian has a readership problem. They don’t agree with it, AKM wrote:
“It could be a disaster if the Guardian has to close down. How on earth will the BBC know what to think without the Guardian there to tell them what the right-think is?!”
TCW Hero of the Week
Journalist Isabel Oakeshott said what the vast majority of the country thought about the PM’s ‘renegotiation’ outcomes: “a shoddy, shabby, cynical sellout”.
Whilst she was at it, she also took on Boris and his incessant will-he-won’t-he position on the referendum. Oakeshott branded Boris’s ‘best out of a bad job’ line as “utterly lame…Come on man, get off the fence!” Bravo Isabel – these comments are a reminder of her value as a true conservative woman.
TCW Villain of the Week
Birmingham Yardley Labour MP Jess Phillips has demonstrated how bizarre the world is when seen through virtuous reality specs.
Comparing drunken shenanigans on a night out in Birmingham to the systematic mass wave of sexual attacks of the kind that disfigured Cologne on New Year’s Eve is not only wrong, it’s just plain stupid.
Jess seems to think that as we live in a patriarchal society in Britain anyway, it matters little to import a few more misogynists who think subjugating and abusing women is A-OK.
