Laura Keynes: Amnesty has forgotten that the right to life is the most basic human right


TCW Hero of the Week

Who would have thought it? Not only a principled stance from Harriet Harman, but a joke as well, all in one Prime Minister’s Questions. The acting Labour leader called Dave out on his proposal to scrap Purdah restrictions for the EU referendum and then attacked him for ‘gloating’.

“Why are they changing the law to exempt the Government from the rules that make sure the Government doesn’t use public funds or the government machine in the short campaign?” she asked. We’ve asked the same. It’s a Downing Street stitch-up.


TCW Villain of the Week

Anne Perkins of The Guardian for traducing one of our foremost scientists and Nobel prize winners, Sir Tim Hunt.

As a result of feminist ideologues like her, poor Sir Tim has not only had to issue a grovelling apology but has had to resign his honorary professorship for a thought crime. He only made a joke about women.

The humourless and pompous Perkins pontificates: “Hunt has at last made explicit the prejudice that undermines the prospects of everyone born with childbearing capabilities”. Sorry, what? Here is what he said. “Three things happen when girls are in the lab — you fall in love with them, they fall in love with you, and when you criticise them, they cry.” It was rather delightful – just not to the thought control police.


Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Kathy Gyngell: Pushy mothers are to blame for the misery of middle class girls, Jen The Blue wrote:

It is one of life’s mysteries why women want to have children so they can give them to a nanny/child-minder to bring up.It is even more a mystery that they think I should pay for it.
