Readers’ Comment of the week
In response to Chris McGovern: Boys in skirts and the sinister side of the educational establishment, Tricia wrote:
I have just pulled my youngest from the Year 7 PSHE programme. Two of the lessons are called ‘Who do you think you are?’ So 127 out of the 128 11-year-olds are about to start their journey of ‘self-discovery’ . . . by questioning if they really are who they thought they were.
TCW Hero of the Week
TCW’s very own David Keighley is without question our hero of the week. He exposed the BBC’s appalling and as yet unapologised-for race baiting on TCW. He revealed how the £1billion taxpayer-funded BBC news machine went into an ‘incontinent anti-Brexit overdrive’ in response to the killing of a Polish man in Essex, reporting it as a race-hate killing triggered by the Brexit vote and smearing Nigel Farage (‘he has blood on his hands’) in the process. David, whose complaints on this matter were – needless to say – arrogantly dismissed by the BBC, was vindicated by the sentencing hearing, which heard that the man who died had started the trouble. The BBC now has a very deep hole to climb out of.
TCW Villain of the Week
Lady Brooke, aka the BBC Radio 4 Today programme’s patronising presenter Sarah Montague, for turning parents Nigel and Sally Rowe into the villains of the piece for removing their children from their C of E gender-bending primary school. ‘What was wrong with that?’ demanded Ms Montague with ill-repressed exasperation. ‘Other people are happy,’ she insisted, including the C of E whose right-on schools mantra, she parroted, is to be ‘inclusive and to respect diversity of all kinds’. Of course it is.
Contrast this with her most sympathetic interview the next day with Susie Green of Mermaids, a transgender support lobby, who had no problem with insisting that schools teach and infants learn how to correctly gender-identify a ‘transitioning child’. And did the hate (coupled with a liberal helping of anti-Christian prejudice) unleashed by the media and political establishment upon Mr and Mrs Rowe for calmly stating facts bother Ms Montague? Not one jot.
