Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to David Keighley’s BBC Watch: Complaints unit makes no apology for pinning Harlow killing on Brexit, Colkitto03 wrote:

“The BBC desperately wanted this story to be true. The BBC is happy to raise the levels of fear among Britain’s million Polish people. It cares not for the distress and anxiety it causes. This is because it does not care about ordinary people regardless of where they come from. It is simply a propaganda organisation now.”

TCW Hero of the Week

Being a French Europhile should make Michel Barnier the ideal candidate for Villain, however, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator actually did us all a favour this week by making Britain’s negotiation position an easy choice. He said that the Single Market and its four freedoms (including freedom to have open door migration) were “indivisible…cherry-picking is not an option”. That’s fine by us – we’ll leave the Single Market. He also wanted a deal by October 2018. Super – no time for delay. “Keep calm and negotiate!”, he concluded. Thanks for that, Michel – we’re ready to get started.

TCW Villain of the Week

Staying on Brexit (because no one else has been talking about it much), our Villain is elderly man and former Chancellor Ken Clarke. Not just for his vote to block the triggering of Article 50, but his arrogant comment that he didn’t want to be “ordered by an opinion poll” what to do. That opinion poll he refers to was the referendum on 23 June and was the largest democratic mandate in British history. Ken can huff and puff all he likes, but his side lost and he should get back to chomping on cigars and watching cricket.
