Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Nick Booth: The BBC is a candidate for a bonfire of the insanities, Colkitto03 wrote:

“What was the carbon footprint of that helicopter they used to film the police raiding Cliff Richard’s house? What’s the carbon footprint of the 420 people they sent to the Brazil Olympics? (more than we sent athletes). What is the carbon footprint of the 80-100 people that the BBC has been sending to Glastonbury for the last decade?”

TCW Hero of the Week

Theresa May showed some guts and steel this week when she put her money where her mouth is and called a general election – stamping her authority on Brexit and seeking to eliminate Labour from the political map at one and the same time. She may have taken everybody by surprise, but this determination to establish a personal mandate – by contrast with the cowardly and procrastinating Gordon Brown – does her great credit. A towering Commons majority should allow her to cement her legacy as the deliverer of Brexit.

TCW Villain of the Week

Labour MP Dawn Butler was, by omission rather than act, this week’s Villain by demonstrating pure, unadulterated uselessness as Labour’s chief spokesperson on day one of the election campaign. She started off her day in the limelight by failing to recognise senior journalists at a Q&A (calling Laura Kuenssberg “that lady in red”) before a disastrous interview later in the day. In a single interview, she managed to compare Theresa May to a dictator, libel a senior corporation over ‘not paying their tax’ and apologise for not making herself clear (code: sorry for being terrible). Plenty more of this to come folks, only 47 days to go…
