Six of the best
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Rev Jules Gomes: Welby Sahib’s post-colonial guilt patronises me because of my skin colour, Labour_is_bunk wrote:
“Leftist/Remainiac thought dictates that the populace as a whole, not just the “beleaguered minorities”, are helpless, stupid and unable to think and act for themselves, and have to be given some sort of patronising leg-up in society – as exemplified in this article, and thus setting the machinery of the Nanny State into action.”
TCW Hero of the Week
Historian and master in sartorial elegance David Starkey had a brilliant outing on Wednesday’s funereal edition of the Today programme. Dr Starkey pointed out that our break with Rome under Henry VIII established national sovereignty and turned us into a proper state for the first time. He slammed the “intolerably tedious” conversation between Robinson, Nick Clegg (“a moaning Remainer like Thomas More”) and Emily Thornberry, saying that back in the day people “actually knew what they were doing”. Starkey used history to show, much to Robinson’s irritation, that after a 45 year aberration our “second Brexit”, in breaking with Brussels, gets our historic sovereignty back.
TCW Villain of the Week
Who else but Nick Clegg, who spent the week dancing across the BBC doing his best impression of a Gloucester Old Spot in muck, crying from the platform of our publicly funded broadcaster how Brexit was going to be a disaster and that the 52 per cent are really just a bunch of gullible, thick oiks. As Auntie’s new roving reporter, he appeared on Today, the rolling news and Newsnight where he went to Ebbw Vale in Wales to show some pity for all the narrow-minded Brexiteers who were bringing about their own demise. Forget Tim ‘nice but dim’ Farron, this man is what makes the Lib Dem moaning irritatingly potent – especially when given a platform. Our Hero David Starkey argued in Medieval speak that cutting off Clegg’s head was “too good for him”, drolly observing how he needed “…preferably chopping in four.” We’ll leave it at that.
