TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

TCW Editors: Jo Cox’s tragic death must not quell the great debate about Britain’s future

David Keighley’s BBC Watch: Farage is smeared as a racist to the very end

Jane Kelly: Khan brings Londonistan a step closer with his bikini body ban

Belinda Brown: Women exploit men’s chivalrous instincts

Caroline Farrow: Orlando horror demonstrates that radical Islam and LGBT rights are diametrically opposed

Jessica Goldfinch: I know the foodbank, so Leave holds no terrors for me

Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Rev Julian Mann: Bishops are not powerless against the present spiritual disorder, Vox Populi wrote:

“The Clergy Discipline Measure has led to the bishops having the wrong sort of weaponry in their armour. It is this that is being deployed against faithful conservative clergy. On the other hand, it is almost impossible to use the CDM against a bishop because he is protected by a magic circle of ecclesiastical judges (all paid by the C of E) and rigged tribunals.

The entire thing is a farce. The scandal is that bishops are accountable to nobody. You can impeach the President of the United States but you cannot get rid of a bishop!”

TCW Hero of the Week

Labour MP Rachel Reeves said that the death of her friend and fellow MP Jo Cox was not related to the referendum debate.

‘We don’t know what the motives were of the guy who attacked her yesterday. I don’t think we should link the referendum to Jo’s death.’

Ms Reeves’s honesty is in marked contrast to those who are explicitly (e.g. Polly Toynbee) or implicitly (e.g. David Cameron and Jeremy Corbyn with their message of ‘unity’) seeking to make political capital out of this dreadful crime.

We hope that the Remain campaign soon gets back to discussing the key issues at the heart of this vital national decision.

TCW Villain of the Week

Our Villain of the Week is ‘Sir’ Bob Geldof, who proved as capable of damaging the Remain campaign on water as Eddie Izzard on land.

Warned of Nigel Farage’s armada of angry fishermen sailing up the Thames, Geldof finished his game of bowls/concert organisation and led his own squadron against the Brexiteers.

The iconic photograph of the ‘battle’ is the ex-Boomtown Rat on deck, flicking the ‘V’ sign at the Leave flotilla supported by his jeering rich friends.

With luvvies like these Remain does not need enemies.

Best of the rest

Niall McCrae: The white working class gives Owen Jones a pasting and turns to Farage

Andrew Cadman: Geldof’s repellent antics will sink the Remain boat
