TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

Laura Perrins: Farage is a lone voice defending our women

Jane Kelly: We live in a world of terrified, fat, impoverished adult children

Cerberus: Dave’s waning credibility puts Remain in jeopardy

Kathy Gyngell: Feminists will find no solace in playing at cake baking

Karen Harradine: There is no equivalence between today’s economic migrants and Jewish children fleeing the Nazis

Fox on Friday: Uncontrolled immigration puts our countryside at risk

Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Cerberus: Dave’s waning credibility puts Remain in jeopardy, ablanche wrote:

“Before Project Fear I was an on the whole a “too risky to leave; heart says out, head says in” Remainer. I’m now going to vote Leave not just because of the atrocious and deeply misguided campaign rhetoric of the Remainers but also because the Leavers have by far the most compelling arguments.

About all Remainers have left is the fear we may be exposed to the European Commission’s version of Napoleon’s Continental System. Bring it on I say.

Interestingly, almost all the undecideds I know, a very diverse bunch, have come to the same way of thinking by broadly similar routes.”

TCW Hero of the Week

Our anonymous Hero of the Week, the audience member who told Eddie Izzard to ‘shut up’ on Question Time, wasn’t just silencing this most passé comedian for his attempts to guilt-trip Nigel Farage on his ancestry.

No, he was shutting down the Left’s tiresome idea that the wisest advocates of their policies (in this case EU-remaining) could be found in the ranks of out-of-touch celebrities.

Let the shusher’s action be a warning to all British comedians considered ‘funny’ by the public: if you wish that to continue, stay out of partisan issues. Curtailing free speech has never looked so good.

TCW Villain of the Week

Amber Rudd’s rise to prominence in this Brexit campaign is now complete with the Villain of the Week award.

She descended on Thursday’s ITV debate to do the bidding of David Cameron and George Osborne, and did so with relish, criticising Boris Johnson over his lust for power and questioning his trustworthiness.

Ms Rudd may be projecting her own ambitions onto Boris, but she certainly is not Thatcher’s heir. More like another soulless careerist, characterised only by her obsessive disdain for ‘Little Englanders’.

To Cameron’s displeasure, we finally got a blue-on-blue debate, but Amber would probably be more comfortable in red.

Best of the rest

Mark Ellse: The lesson of Deepcut. Women don’t have the strength to serve on the front line

Nick Booth: Virtue-signallers agonise over the death of Muhammad Ali
