TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

David Keighley’s BBC Watch: Broadcasting shake-up could curb anti-Brexit bias

Kathy Gyngell: Theresa May is not Mrs Thatcher – yet

Niall McCrae: The real hate crime is the Left’s loathing of Britain

Ken MacIntosh: Britain is not a giant loony bin, whatever the surveys say

Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Patrick Benham-Crosswell: Western military action in Syria is off the board, Tricia wrote:

“A very sensible post. I keep shouting at the radio “who do you think will take over if Assad goes?” The mindset of Western politicians is stupid.

We always knew the Middle East had to be ruled by strong men or anarchy ensued. We don’t much like it, but it’s reality. Let’s get real and stick with Assad.”

TCW Hero of the Week

If we ignore the stuff about getting the State involved in our lives, Theresa May’s Conservative Party conference was a success. Firstly, she put a date on the Article 50 trigger so that we can all start planning our Independence Day parties.

Secondly, she launched a scathing attack on the liberal elites that social conservatives have been fighting for years, deploring how they find people’s “patriotism disgraceful, concerns about immigration parochial, views about crime illiberal and the fact that 17 million voted to leave the EU simply bewildering.”

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

TCW Villain of the Week

Ukip, the party whose job it is to hold Theresa May to account over her promising words on Brexit, continued to self-harm this week.

The chaotic scenes in the European Parliament which ended up seriously hurting one of their brightest talents is, as Nigel Farage put it, is something you might see in “third world countries”.

At this rate, the Tories have got about as much opposition as a Middle East dictator.

Best of the rest

Rev Jules Gomes: Diversity and inclusion have trumped the truth

Paul T Horgan: Labour is none too keen on women
