Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Andrew Cadman: We need a statue of Nigel Farage in Parliament Square, Grumpy wrote:

“A double life-size bronze statue atop the white cliffs of Dover, big, cheesy grin, pint in one hand and the other raised in two fingered salute towards the Continent…”

TCW Hero of the Week

This week was the week of the Conservative Women as Theresa May and Andrea Leadsom made it through to the final shootout in the race to be our next Prime Minister.

Let’s overlook any shortcomings for the moment and be thankful that these two women aren’t the beneficiaries of Tory tokenism – May and Leadsom have made their way up the ranks through ability and without help from PC positive discrimination.

Now it’s up to Conservative members to choose our next PM on merit and on policy – not least who can best deliver Brexit. How refreshing.

TCW Villain of the Week

Conservative minister and arch ‘moderniser’ Nick Boles this week ended his brief career as Michael Gove’s campaign manager for the Tory leadership.

Blundering Boles blotted his copybook by cynically begging MPs not to vote for Andrea Leadsom. “Are we really confident that the membership won’t vote for a fresh face who shares their attitudes about much of modern life? Like they did with IDS”, Boles said.

That was code for ‘we don’t trust conservatives not to muck things up’. What a shabby way to leave the stage for the uber liberal Notting Hill set.

Best of the rest
