Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Laura Perrins: Tories should ditch modernisation and balance the books, wisest religion wrote:

“In the absence of a moral message, as Laura advocates, Conservatives are fighting with one hand tied behind their back. The Left integrates religion and politics. It harnesses its political aspirations to the powerful engine of religion (though they would never call it that). Appealing to the heart as well as the head gives the Left an unstoppable strength. Conservative politics was in the past closely allied to Christian belief.

“However, Conservatives have followed the atheist drift in our culture. In modernising and detaching themselves from Christianity they have become rootless and shallow, with only a technical offering to the public but nothing to ignite the soul.

“As many of us know personally, faith in Christ is the most satisfying of all beliefs; if only the Conservatives had the courage to defy the liberal PC scoffers and rediscover the moral foundation which is both true and also deeply embedded in our own British culture.”

TCW Hero of the Week

Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, who no doubt sleeps in double-breasted pyjamas, was a beacon of hope as Parliament returned this week. Here was a man unflustered by the Tories’ current loss of nerve, saying that “the position of the British people hasn’t changed since June 23rd last year” and that Brexit is “surprisingly straightforward”. We need to leave everything from the single market to the customs union, avoiding “the classic, narrow, European inward-looking approach” by hiding from the rest of the world. If only we’d had more of the erudition of Rees-Mogg, the Tory benches might be a bit busier.

TCW Villain of the Week

Shadow Chancellor and Nasty-Piece-of-Work-in-Chief John McDonnell was in his element this week, inciting his mob to unleash a ‘Day of Rage’ on our streets to protest against a party that won the most votes and seats in the election. Despite then trying to distance himself from his earlier rabble-rousing in his softly softly voice, he could not conceal his real desire for the mob to “kick the sh*t” out of London – violence being the “best part of our movement”. One more Tory slip-up and this charmer could be sat in the Treasury.

Lefty Lunacy of the Week

Another retreat by the Christian church – hardly news any more
