Chris McGovern: Cromwell would have been proud of our new laws stifling campus free speech


TCW Hero of the Week

On Wednesday it was 40 years exactly since Margaret Thatcher became leader of the Conservative Party. Her womanhood strengthened the nation.

Today’s grievance-ridden female politicians, by contrast, will never achieve her presence, status or authority. They have hamstrung themselves, the men around them and society in general, with their “isms”. She is our greatest peacetime PM. A social conservative’s ultimate female role model. And our hero of the week.


TCW Villain of the Week

Not a good week for Harriet “Barbie” Harman. Her pink campaign bus was widely ridiculed. Then we found out it was made in Turkey at a cost of 500 British jobs and funded by an €190m EU loan raised by the UK taxpayer.

To top it off, Harriet then thanked our co-editor Laura Perrins for her supportive blog. She obviously only read the headline.


Reader’s Comment of the Week

Callingallcomets wrote: Might I suggest a magnolia bus to be used by Tories, Labour and LibDems? Such a bland, neutral colour would perfectly symbolise the all-enveloping mediocrity surrounding “official” party politics today.

The PR puffery and carefully orchestrated sound bites and photo ops that masquerade as modern political campaigning are designed to mask the emptiness of three fossilised constructs that were once vibrant collectives driven by passion and conviction. Fortunately, looking at the polls, quite a number of our fellow citizens are coming to the same conclusion.
