Six of the best
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Kathy Gyngell: Farage’s Breaking Point poster told an inconvenient truth, Shazza wrote:
“The official narrative as to why the NHS is failing, school places and housing are in short supply and there is massive road congestion etc is to blame it on Tory ‘austerity’ – the BBC/Sky/MSM are full on to emphasise this false premise that more money is the answer. It is not.
“Another inconvenient truth is this – you cannot have a welfare state and open borders.
“Another excellent article from The Conservative Woman – a site that is fast becoming the best ‘go to’ for open, honest debate.”
TCW Hero of the Week
It is not often that TCW praises a teacher, but this week we applaud brave London teacher Calvin Robinson for opening the lid on the leftist brainwashing our children face. Robinson wrote how his Brexit vote was ordered to be suppressed as it was considered to be “a triumph for bigotry” and said how there is a broad “impulse towards censorship of views that did not fit the progressive orthodoxy”. The message was clear: “the education system has become increasingly gripped by a culture of Orwellian groupthink, where only fashionable, Left-wing opinions are deemed acceptable” and that anyone wishing to deviate from this “such as by backing Brexit or the Conservatives — is treated as a kind of heresy, an offensive challenge to the ruling creed.” Terrifying and magnificently written, read it in full here.
TCW Villain of the Week
The BBC had a mare this week, falling into a hole of their own making after the Government forced them to reveal how much of our money is used on their top ‘talent’. There were villains a plenty, but what stood out for us was how creepy Jeremy Vine ‘interrogated’ senior Beeboid James Purnell about his own salary. Vine asked Purnell a not-at-all-loaded question about how he can justify paying £750,000 for a Radio 2 presenter. Purnell gushed “because you’re a fantastic broadcaster who provides a huge public service” – what, such as talking to a Welshman on his allotment every day? This sort of chummy, bloated backslapping has been exposed for good, may it herald the beginning of the end for the state-funded Beeb.
