Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Laura Perrins: Feminism empowers the big, bossy, nasty State, Nockian wrote:
“Yep, I’ve never seen feminists going up against Muslim oppression of women. This is a real patriarchy in which many of the women don’t even recognise their oppression because of their fear of the faith itself.
Interestingly, we don’t see LGTBQ protestors attacking a religion that outlaws homosexuality and drops gay men off the top of tall buildings.”
TCW Hero of the Week
Education Secretary Justine Greening admirably stood her ground in the face of a lefty teacher onslaught as she defended the Government’s grammar school plans. Perpetually irritable teachers shouted “rubbish!” and “no, no!” as Greening rightly told them that “in terms of disadvantaged children”, grammar schools “really do help them close the attainment gap”. Well done Justine, and don’t forget to come along to our grammar schools debate on Tuesday in the House of Commons between Graham Brady MP and Sir Michael Wilshaw. Get your free ticket at this link.
TCW Villain of the Week
Chancellor Philip Hammond presented his first Budget, and despite the entertaining jokes, it was a bit of a flop. A manifesto muddle meant that Spreadsh*t Phil (according to the Beeb’s Nick Robinson) ended up putting up people’s taxes despite being a Tory Chancellor. As TCW’s Kathy Gyngell pointed out, Hammond’s daycare splurge also signified the completion of the feminist takeover of the Tory Party. ‘Box Office Phil’ needs to buck his ideas up.
