TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

David Keighley’s BBC Watch: Panorama’s hatchet job on Trump completes its fall from grace

Mark Ellse: Oxfam needs a lesson in market economics

Andrew Cadman: The Davos elite has its head in the clouds

Belinda Brown: For the sake of boys we must value fathers

Rob Slane: The Trump ‘dossier’ shows how the media launder the news

Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Mark Ellse: Oxfam needs a lesson in market economics, Colkitto03 wrote:

“Major charities can actually do more harm than good. When they are not stalking vulnerable old people in the UK, they are extending poverty in the third world.

They are as badly managed as our foreign aid budget.

Trade not Aid will best serve the third world.

We have done 50 years of ‘giving’ and how has that worked? The time has come to dump protectionist trade blocs like the EU and start giving poor countries a chance to trade fairly.”

TCW Hero of the Week

Mrs May has won well deserved plaudits for her much awaited Brexit plan. “Steel of the New Iron Lady,” said the Daily Mail , comparing her with you know who. The Sun’s ‘Brexodus’ headline likened her to Moses no less, while The Times led with: “May to EU: give us fair deal or you’ll be crushed”. On a roll, Mrs May socked it to the global elite at Davos too: Hard Brexit Britain is open for business. Our tough-talking PM won TCW’s total admiration for her best week yet.

TCW Villain of the Week

Instead of twiddling his thumbs and playing yet more rounds of golf, Barack Obama spent his final week in office reminding us all just why we will be glad to see the back of him. Among the collection of people he was pardoning was Bradley/Chelsea Manning – the soldier who leaked top secret US documents to the internet. As Commander-in-Chief, Obama had a duty to protect the soldiers who put their lives on the line for America, and yet one of his final acts was to pardon someone who put many of their lives at risk. This wasn’t political bravery, but an act of betrayal from an eternally posturing President.
