Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Laura Perrins: Feminists and male supremacists have much in common – both are wrong, Colkitto03 wrote:
“The truth is that by pretty much any metric, married people are happier and wealthier and raise much more stable and successful children. I would highly recommend it to any young man or woman. Successfully married people (a huge amount of the population) have very little to complain about and hence become the famous ‘silent majority’ while those on the opposing ends of the gender argument spectrum get to dominate the debate.
I think that men ‘going their own way’ is a bad choice but it’s their decision and one can respect it.
The entrenched feminist influence in our establishment and institutions is having a really sinister impact on our society and that’s what we need combat.”
TCW Hero of the Week
Asked by a contemptuous Ed Miliband what nation the UK could resemble outside the EU, the reply from Conservative MP David Davis was that “the country we’re going to be like is Great Britain!”
And what joy it brought. Viewers could see openly what little regard the ‘In’ side had for the country and its people. Davis’s summary was the zenith of a day where, for once, Brexit had the momentum and courage, while Remainers were clueless at the prospect of dealing with people outside Westminster. It made you forget the previous month of NHS obsession and Boris promotion that had constituted the Leave campaign.
Notice how in the Scottish BBC debate and on Question Time, none of the ‘Outers’ were affiliated to Vote Leave? Perhaps the wrong campaign received official designation, and perhaps the wrong David is Tory leader.
TCW Villain of the Week
Green Party Brightonista Caroline Lucas made her contribution to the EU referendum debate. Instead of being proud of Britain and confident of what an independent nation could do in the world, she did the opposite.
On migration, Caroline clearly hasn’t tried to get an appointment at her local GP recently because she proclaimed that “I don’t want to apologise for the EU giving us free movement, I want to celebrate it!” On democracy, Lucas then claimed that there is “more democracy in the EU than there is here”. Obviously, because in Britain our head of government is an unelected man from Luxembourg.
Caroline and her hempy Remainian friends keep spouting this nonsense. Let’s just hope the polls are wrong on exactly how many Brits believe it.
Best of the rest
