TCW’s top ten blogs of the week


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.

Tal Tyagi: How to choose a degree that will make you rich

Will Jones: To get people back to work, start telling the truth

Thantirimudalige Canisius: If post-colonial Sri Lanka is at peace with its Empire heritage, why isn’t Britain? 

David Cann: The woke tragedy of RADA

Caroline ffiske: Sex lessons? No, just malevolent mysticism and perverted science

Karen Harradine: Bending the knee to Marxist oppression

Paul T Horgan: Bye bye, BBC. I won’t miss you

Kateri Muys: Why masks are a waste of time

Michael Fahey: You could drive a bus through Johnson’s muddled mask rules

Karen Harradine: Why has Boris Johnson turned on Israel?

Kathy’s pick of the week outside the top ten is Kevin Donnelly’s ‘1984 is nearly here’, which forensically highlights how Orwell’s satire is coming horribly true. He writes: ‘Drawing on events in Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany, Orwell depicts an oppressive and terrifying world where freedom of thought, expression, religion and the inherent right to life and liberty are crushed . . . the violence and mindless groupthink epitomised by the actions of BLM activists’ politically correct ideology now rampant across society’s institutions are similarly instrumental in enforcing cultural-Left ideology and language control.’ As one commenter wrote: ‘Orwell meant 1984 to be a warning. The Left are using it as an instruction manual.’

Margaret’s pick is Marianne Locke’s ‘My granny outclassed the woke-class pseuds’ which in a few well-chosen words distills the essence of ‘class’.
