IN CASE you missed any of our ten most read blogs of last week, here they are for you again – and well worth the read.
Karen Harradine: From the Guardian, a toxic anti-Semitic smear against Farage
Meredith Brent: BLM demonstrators haven’t a clue, but they are having fun

Chris McGovern: Punished, head who told the truth about lazy teachers

Kathy Gyngell: Jordan Peterson debunks white privilege
Kathy Gyngell: Speak out now to expose the divisive ‘anti-racist’ fanatics
My pick of the week from outside the top ten is by a debut writer to us, Elizabeth Smith. Her article The Covid brat pack: Has lockdown turned adults into children? is an observation about the infantilising of society which the Government’s response to the Covid pandemic has exacerbated. Sh argues there were good signs at the start, with society showing ‘encouraging signs of maturity’. Indeed it did look for a while as though ‘this sudden and enforced reflection’ would return to us old values of restraint and respect. But no, as she observes, it didn’t last. Excessive emotion became the order of the day. And it is dangerous. You can read the article here.
Margaret’s choice is Simon Knight’s Oh, for God’s sake, archbishop! Of course Jesus can be white, a succinct and comprehensive demolition job on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s ‘woke’ view that Jesus may be portrayed as any racial type but white Caucasian, and on his pompous warning that some of the statues in Canterbury Cathedral ‘will have to come down’. Knight suggests that ‘a degree of humility is surely in order’, but that seems to be beyond Justin Welby.
