Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Laura Perrins: It is not Tim Farron’s private beliefs that bother me, Snoffle Gronch wrote:
“I expect Mr Farron considers adultery to be sinful. Does that automatically imply that he believes adulterers should be taken and stoned, paraded in a skimmington, or branded with a scarlet letter? Possibly not.
Still, he has brought his woes on himself. No decent person would voluntarily associate with such a gratuitously nasty, disloyal, bullying, obnoxious crew of scoundrels as the il-Liberal anti-Democrats.”
TCW Hero of the Week
Vox-popped Welshman Mr Edwards of Porthcawl was canvassed by the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg this week to coincide with Theresa May’s visit to a Welsh factory. The 85-year-old, flat capped gent said that after voting Labour for his entire life, he was now a huge fan of Theresa May and that “she is wonderful, best we’ve had” and that Comrade Corbyn wants to “introduce a gimmick, communism” before saying “Mr Corbyn…bye bye.” A man who demonstrates exactly why the Iron Mayden is worth backing.
TCW Villain of the Week
The snap general election call has given a head start to the Tories, although it has appeared to have caught the candidates department of Tory HQ on the hop. Less happily, they have been given an opportunity to impose their will on unfortunate constituencies. One such instance came to a head this week when the Brexit hotspot of Hornchurch and Upminster got told that their next MP must be a Remainer. Or else. Poor form from the Tories who need to encourage their activists to get out…not embitter them.
