Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to David Keighley’s BBC Election Watch: Marr lets slippery McDonnell off the Marxist hook, phil wrote:
“I regard Robinson and Marr as two peas in a pod. They always bowl undies at Labour and bouncers at the Tories, although they will occasionally bowl the odd bouncer at Labour when their coverage becomes so overwhelmingly anti-Tory that parts of the press start having a go at them. They then claim that an odd attack on Labour means that they are impartial.”
TCW Hero of the Week
Theresa May’s “rock” of a husband Philip May made his election debut this week on the BBC’s One Show sofa in a joint appearance with his wife. His performance was admirable, beaming when recalling the tough negotiations with his wife as to “when I take the bins out, not if I take the bins out!” At risk of offending the PC feminist and gender brigades (which he did), he dared refer to ‘boys’ jobs and ‘girls’ jobs’ – in the May household anyway. What a nice chap – and what a good old-fashioned lesson in what makes a strong and stable (yes, we said it) marriage.
TCW Villain of the Week
Labour’s Barry Gardiner went out to bat for Jeremy Corbyn this week – but could only manage a few minutes on the Today programme before blasting them for being biased against Labour after Nick Robinson committed the cardinal sin of reading a newspaper headline on air. In a further example of the hypocritical hierarchy of the Left, it then emerged that Barry has been creating his very own ‘Fake News’ – writing a nauseatingly positive consumer review for a woman’s poetry book on Amazon…which happens to have been written by his wife. What planet is bonkers Barry living on?
