These comments made to a teacher’s conference in Brighton followed a simply sublime and illuminating outing on BBC2, bringing the history of the Magna Carta to life. Even The Guardian was full of praise. Superb
TCW Villain of the Week
Pro-EU campaign British Influence linkedEuroscepticism to anti-semitism this week, on Holocaust Memorial Day of all days.

Why has this country become such a dirty, sordid place?
