Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Rev Jules Gomes: Welby proves a wolf in shepherd’s clothes as he devalues marriage, Bogbrush wrote:
“The guy’s a fraud. He no more believes in the virgin birth, or the resurrection, or bringing Lazarus back to life, or the water-to-wine stuff than I do. However, unlike him I’m an avowed atheist and don’t make my living dressing up to look like an anorexic Demis Roussos and mouthing platitudes at people.
You’re all mad to listen to the guy, he’s a nobody. Dr Gomes captures the true value of aspirational lifestyles in this article and though I don’t share his opinion of the spiritual dimension, I – as usual – find myself in total agreement with what he says.”
TCW Hero of the Week
TV baker and national treasure Mary Berry has proved her loyalty by not deserting her broadcasting home at the BBC.
Furthermore, Mary has shown impeccable manners this week by saying that the Great British Bake Off will still be “successful” without her.
Unlike most of the people who grace the BBC’s screens, she does not virtue-signal but she just gets on with her job, baking cakes and reflecting on the importance of family. She is certainly no sell out.
TCW Villain of the Week
Labour’s Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has reminded us why he is a genuinely nasty piece of work whilst being paraded at this week’s Labour Party Conference.
The grimmest highlight of his week was refusing to retract comments he made about calling for former Tory MP Esther McVey to be “lynched”. McDonnell ‘justified’ his disgusting words by saying “sometimes it is better to be honest with people about how you feel”.
And to think he is being made a Privy Counsellor. Her Majesty should not even let him through the gates…
