Six of the best
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to, Christopher Gage: The facts of life are no longer conservative in a world of perpetual adolescence, Damaris Tighe wrote:
“Agree entirely with the article. The re-creation of a property-owning democracy is the answer, and consistent with conservative philosophy. Margaret Thatcher’s Right to Buy converted Labour voters into Tory voters. However, perhaps Mr Gage’s prose could be a little less purple next time?”
TCW Hero of the Week
This week the President of the European Commission went to the European Parliament for a session assessing Malta’s six months in the EU presidency chair. Stunned at the low turnout of MEPs in the chamber, Jean Claude Juncker branded the European Parliament “ridiculous”. In honour of The Conservative Woman agreeing with Mr Juncker for the first time ever – the European Parliament is indeed ‘ridiculous’ – it is only right to make him our hero of the week.
TCW Villain of the Week
EU cheerleader the CBI this week called for Britain to remain in the single market and customs union until a free trade deal is achieved. This was a deliberate attempt to try to thwart Brexit by an organisation made up of foreign-owned businesses and multinationals. Make no mistake – the CBI do not have in mind what is best for Britain and the British people.
