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.

Breaking News: An open door to 600 million? Madness!

Can the Times newspapers sink any lower?

Exposed: The culture of ‘spite and venom’ behind the BBC’s trashing of Churchill

Breaking News: Media sites censor viral video of doctors’ Capitol Hill coronavirus press conference

The Tories’ surrender in the culture wars will bring them down

Rebekah Brooks and the woking of News UK

Don’t fall for the virus ‘second wave’ narrative

I didn’t wear a mask in Tesco – and I survived!

We are being fed a diet of lies

The lockdown myth is exposed, but the mainstream media aren’t interested

An article that deserves far more attention than it’s yet received, which forensically unpicks the implications of the new Hate Crime and Disorder (Scotland) Bill, is my pick of the week outside the top ten. Liam Harkness reveals it to be an unprecedented attack on freedom of expression through the creation of crimes and a litany of protected interest groups. It weakens the barriers to conviction. It will leave citizens living in fear of being unwitting criminals. It extends liability for hate crime to managers and officers of a company and lowers the threshold of criminal conduct, indicating the SNP are prepared to suspend normal operation of the law to achieve their goals.

The words fascist and facism trip off far too many tongues far too easily today but, ironically, are rarely directed at the countries where there are genuinely warning signs of an emerging authoritarian political philosophy.

Thankfully Scotland does not exhibit the many characteristics that define a fascist state yet it is becoming worryingly  oppressive with the dominant SNP party and its increasingly authoritarian leader Nicola Sturgeon ruling the roost. Her government’s new Hate Crime and Disorder (Scotland) Bill should have truly liberal Scots shaking in their shoes. 

Please read this important article here.

Margaret’s choice from outside the top ten is Campbell Campbell-Jack’s ‘Warning: It’s Audrey Hepburn!’ in which he highlights the idiocy of warning the viewers of old films that they involve ‘outdated attitudes which may cause offence’. He observes that such nonsense is the work of ‘intolerant progressives, deadly afraid that someone somewhere is enjoying themselves in an unapproved manner’.
