TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

Kathy Gyngell: Feminism robs men of their dignity. They rob themselves of their lives

Jago Pearson: Pomposity and entitlement. Why the Tories can’t win

Louise Kirk: Forty years of explicit sex education has given us the highest teenage pregnancy rate in Western Europe

Laura Perrins: They are not pro-choice. They are pro-abortion

David Keighley: The Cliff Richard affair is damning evidence the BBC cares little for journalistic standards

Caroline Farrow: Rachel Reeves appears to be putting herself before her country and her new baby


TCW Hero of the Week

Conservative backbencher Fiona Bruce spearheaded a valiant attempt to outlaw abortion on the grounds of gender this week. Her proposal was defeated by 292 to 201 in the Commons, with the government saying it had been consistently clear that sex selective abortion was “already illegal”.

But Fiona Bruce is right. There is no explicit statement about gender selective abortion in UK law. A review will now take place.


TCW Villain of the Week

Work and Pensions Secretary is not an insignificant job. Far from it. If Labour win the election on May 7th, Rachel Reeves will be the woman in the hot seat. For a short time, at least.

Expecting a child in June, Reeves says she will do the job for a few weeks then return just three months after giving birth. Ms Reeves is being unfair to herself, her unborn child and to the country if she goes ahead with this plan.


Reader’s Comment of the Week: The media has a vendetta against men

John Marlow wroteA well written article, and should be pinned onto the Prime Minister’s door. During my lifetime I have seen the rise of a concerted effort by the media (especially the BBC) to downgrade the role of men. Look at the plays on TV and films. Almost every one shows the ‘fact’ that men are inferior. But it is not only women who write these scripts, soft and stupid men are also to blame.
