Six of the Best:
TCW Hero of the Week
Thursday’s BBC challengers debate was a flop, getting just 4 million viewers. But Ukip’s leader made the whole event worthwhile by exposing yet more BBC bias and an extensively left-wing audience.
His Highness, the Lord Dimbleby, did of course point out that an independent polling company had selected the audience, balancing it in proportion to the parties present. The actual figures were 36 per cent on the Right and 64 per cent on the Left. Well done Nigel Farage for saying what we’ve been writing since the dawn of time.
TCW Villain of the Week
The Tories are too right wing to win. We’ve heard it all now. It’s the view of David Cameron’s former minister for the Lib Dems, Ken Clarke, who has said the Conservatives haven’t won a majority for 23 years because they are too far to the right.
Dear old Ken must mean all that childcare, gay marriage and green targets, promoted by the Tories, did not go far enough. The former Chancellor is of course a Euro-luvvie and everything that is wrong with the party. It’s time for him officially to join the yellow benches.
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Laura Perrins: Hillary Clinton is a power-crazed crook. Yet we are meant to be grateful she is running for President, TJB wrote:
I am terrified that she actually may get in. The mainstream media in the USA are already doing the heavy lifting for her, setting the scene to paint anyone who dares speak against her as a misogynist bully who hates to see a powerful Democrat woman, or if the person attacking her is a woman a confused, browbeaten victim of the patriarchy who obviously needs a hand from the sisterhood to see the error of her ways.
It is beyond belief to me how anyone who has been caught out in so many lies, evasions and apparent straightforward criminality in the case of her private e-mail servers could even be considered suitable for election.
