Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Jane Kelly: Harriet is so out of touch. Modern women are more interested in moon cupping than the EU, 5th column traitors wrote:

“Funnily enough – Dearest Harriet – I have been studying the numbers of people involved in rubbish collection and sewage working and it would seem to be rife with inequality because (and these are only an estimate you understand), about 99 per cent of bin and sewage workers are male.

The only conclusion I can draw from this is that women are being excluded and that men are pushing women out of the Refuse and Sewage sectors. Of course I shall need some more EU funds to complete my study. Once I have I shall be sure to publish it in all its glorious assumptions and manufactured conclusions all over the BBC. Then I will be approaching you to get some legislation pushed through parliament ASAP to force mandatory quotas for female Sewage and Refuse recruitment until we have 50 per cent representation in those sectors.”

TCW Hero of the Week

Former Conservative cabinet minister Lord Waldegrave is our Hero of the Week for his great display of principle. In response to Matt Hancock’s plans for companies to ask potential employees where they were educated, the former cabinet minister threatened to leave the Tories in retaliation for their ‘social engineering’ attempt.

As Provost of Eton College, Lord Waldegrave is well aware of how schooling is not just a rich-vs-poor dynamic. In Eton and many other private schools, significant amounts of pupils are there on bursaries and other scholarships, enjoying opportunities the State could never have provided.

Here’s hoping that more politicians will stake their careers for common sense.

TCW Villain of the Week

Shadow Europe Minister Pat Glass deservedly gets Villain of the Week for her continued crusade against the inherent prejudices of white men.

Answering an unrelated question on how to engage Remain voters, Glass suggested that people thus inclined should speak to their mothers, grandmothers, but not grandfathers, since ‘old white men’ were very much the ‘problem’.

Imagine if she had made the same equally inappropriate comment about ‘young black men’. TCW suspect she would have ended up in court.
