Six of the best
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Laura Perrins: Refugee games. Children are recast as political pawns by the Left, Tricia wrote:
“You are quite right to be cautious Laura. Sweden has taken in young migrants who have no fear of anyone, do not respect the law and are running amok.
The other question is: “is our social care system up to the job?” They make such a good job “caring” for children at the moment that the majority end up in prison or on drugs.
The day Yvette Cooper takes one into her home, I may reconsider my opinion.”
TCW Hero of the Week
In a slight departure from the norm, TCW is awarding this week’s accolade to the Lancashire farmer who attempted to spray Emma Thompson with manure. The lefty actress and part-time virtue signaller was in the process of breaking a High Court injunction and trespassing on land earmarked as a potential fracking site.
The farmer wasn’t pleased when Thompson and her sister unlawfully entered the field to bake renewable energy-themed cakes as part of a naff Greenpeace stunt. Sadly, while the farmer missed a direct hit on Thompson, he did manage to spray a couple of her mates.
For a woman who recently called Britain a “a cake-filled misery-laden grey old island”, we’re glad that she got her comeuppance in a uniquely quaint way. Hopefully it’ll prevent her from kicking up a stink anytime soon…
TCW Villain of the Week
Another week, another catastrophe for the Labour party. Red Ken Livingstone has managed to magnify the chaos on the Left by getting himself suspended from Labour over comments which were in defence of Hitler.
As TCW’s Karen Harradine has made clear on this site, anti-Semitism is repugnant in whatever form it appears. A party so prepared to mount its moral high horse so readily should start asking itself some deep questions over whether it can really continue to be associated with its own brand of pious self-righteousness.
Ironically, Ken was the chair of Labour’s international policy committee. At least he now has more time to tend to his newts.
