TCW Hero of the Week
Bright children are being denied grammar school education in Kent as a result of the Government’s failure to approve an extension to a current school in Sevenoaks. Paul Carter, the Tory leader of the county council, has spoken out.
He said the delay was harming local children’s education prospects and called on the Coalition to come to a decision before the election. He said ministers are making “heavy weather” of the decision. We say he’s right. Nicky Morgan should get a move on.
TCW Villain of the Week
Over the last few days, since the unmasking of Jihadi John, Asim Qureshi has taken to the airwaves – courtesy of the BBC and Sky – to sing his praises. Quereshi is the director of CAGE and has sought to present the ISIS executioner as the loveliest of guys.
He has expressed no remorse for his association with Jihadi John; to the contrary he actually blames the establishment for “creating him”. Qureshi is an apologist for an Islamic murderer – and our villain of the week.
Reader’s Comment of the Week
Mark Ellse wrote: You are absolutely correct. There will be no end to the destructive arguments that the gay marriage legislation has initiated for, as you rightly say, one aim of its supporters is the destruction of marriage. Many are well meaning but misguided. They caricature what they see as issues of ‘tyranny’ and ‘ownership’, forgetting the freedoms of security, companionship and protection that marriage and the rearing of one’s own biological children bring.
