TCW Week in Review


The Conservative Woman’s new weekly email is sent out every Friday, providing you with a round up of our most popular blogs, best reader’s comments and editor’s picks. We also bring you our hero and villain of the week. Sign up here. 

Six of the best

Laura Perrins: Ched Evans should realise that an honourable man does not take advantage of a drunken woman

Nick Wood: We ruled a quarter of the world and our football team was magic. What was wrong with the 1930s?

Laura Perrins: A few State-sponsored fatherhood classes won’t halt the feminist assault on marriage

Nick Wood: Ukip is beginning to sound like all the rest

Kathy Gyngell: Dave is stuck with the nasty party tag because he insists on playing by socialist rules

David Keighley: One of Maggie’s biggest mistakes – leaving the BBC in its gilded cage


TCW Hero of the Week

While most commentators condemned the appalling terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo as a sickening assault on free speech, Conservative Home’s Paul Goodman went a step further.

“They don’t kill us because of what we do. They kill us because of who we are,” he wrote. Bravo, Paul. These attacks have nothing to do with our foreign policy but everything to do with what is wrong with Islamism, which poses a threat to political order for the very reason that it puts religion above nationality and democracy.


TCW Villain of the Week

The Scottish problem continues. Jim Murphy boasted this week that Labour’s mansion tax would pay for 1000 more nurses north of the border.

“We will tax houses in London and the South East to pay for 1,000 new nurses in the Scottish NHS. It’s a real win-win for Scotland,” he said. 80 per cent of the money raised will come from London. The cheek.


Reader’s Comment of the Week

In reply to, ‘Nick Wood: Ukip is beginning to sound like all the rest’, Earthenwarewrote:

I’m also rather concerned about some of the things that Carswell and O’Flynn are saying, but I’m putting it down to political realism.

The doctrines of “tolerance” (Carswell) and “eat the rich” (O’Flynn) are not what I joined Ukip for, but it seems that having crossed the Rubicon in order to achieve popularity, the leadership have accepted that some bastardisation of the party’s principles is required.

I’m remaining a party member for the time-being, as my main reasons for joining (Farage and Nuttall) are still in place. I am watching closely though. We aren’t a party of clones, but if the Left of the party start to take over then I’ll have to reconsider my position.
