TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

Kathy Gyngell: The BBC worships at the feet of oh so saintly Angelina

David Keighley: For the Beeb, loving Europe means breaking all the rules

Cerberus: The Queen shouldn’t waste her time on the Speech. Brexit consumes all in its path

Niall McCrae: Not all women share Harriet Harman’s slavish devotion to all things Europe

Rob Slane: One more thing and I’m leaving the Church of Zengland

Fox on Friday: Without our veto we are powerless to halt the European superstate

Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Laura Perrins: BBC’s exploitation of children to push its transgenderism agenda is disgraceful, BSO wrote:

“It was one of the most irresponsible things you can do and in 20 years’ time the suicides will be on Humphrys’s conscience. I never brought the Humphrys hype, but at least under Rod Liddle as Today editor he’d challenge. This feature was uncontested propaganda. What happened to feminism and the Left? We are at a moment of decadence and decline.

Anyone who has had a family member or colleague struggle with dysphoria, as I have, would see this as the height of exploitation of deeply vulnerable people. Shame on you Today. Is not even childhood sacred?”

TCW Hero of the Week

Our heroine of the week is Gillian Duffy. Dismissed by Gordon Brown in 2010 as a ‘bigoted woman’, her concerns about immigration have outlasted the relevance of the former PM, as she reaffirms her beliefs to support leaving the EU.

Ms Duffy symbolises the idea of ‘country before party’, a principle manifestly lacking in many figureheads of the referendum campaign from left to right.

With phrases such as “I love being in England and I don’t want to be a European” (which in more civilised times would be statements of the obvious) here’s hoping this could motivate more people to be ‘bigoted’ about the direction in which Britain is headed.

TCW Villain of the Week

Lefty poet Carol Ann Duffy joined fellow luvvies such as Benedict Cumberbatch and Sir Patrick Stewart in signing a letter saying that the UK’s ‘creative industries’ would be harmed by Brexit.

The letter said that being in the EU (and getting all their grant money) “bolsters Britain’s leading role on the world stage” and Brexit would leave the country “an outsider shouting from the wings”.

A tough choice confronts TCW. Are we glad she’s taken a break from writing vulgar poems about men or should we implore her to stick to the day job?

Best of the rest

Norman Wells: Pandering to the transgender agenda is pandering to a delusion

Lefty Lunacy: Could Songs of Praise fall victim to the BBC lefties?
