TCW Hero of the Week

Quentin Letts gives his leader’s debate verdict in the Mail today. “So like ‘The Weakest Link’ did the TV debate look,” he writes, “presenter Julie Etchingham even put on a pair of Anne Robinson spectacles.”

She certainly was on good form, keeping all of those public school boys and jumped up nationalists on their toes. “Our Julie was in a white jacket that gave her the air of an imperious dental nurse. ‘Now rinse please, Mr Clegg.’” Quentin thought she was great. So did we.

 

TCW Villain of the Week

Arrogant, bossy, presumptous, humourless. Some polls may suggest Nicola Sturgeon won last night’s seven-way boreathon, but we say she is a real and present danger to the future of our country.

She is prepared to prop up what may be the most left-wing government since the war. She wants to put our defence in jeopardy by scrapping the nuclear deterrent. And she wants more money from the English. We won’t have it. And nor will the people south of Hadrian’s Wall.

 

Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Beatrice Timpson: Feisty Ed rumbles defensive Dave, TNL wrote:

It wasn’t a great night for Cameron – it did at times look like he did not want to be there. But it was a terrible night for Miliband Minor – he needed to come across a prime ministerial. However, with the studio audience he came across as typically awkward and with Paxman he came across like a petulant teenager. If it comes down to a choice between Cameron and the ridiculous Leader of the Opposition (which it basically does) then Cameron is the better man for the job; not because he is any good at it, but because we can’t afford to have that idiot Miliband running the country.
