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.

The National Trust was set up to preserve our national monuments, so they could be seen by the public and have their histories remembered. Like so many other institutions, it has fallen into line with the remits of the age of woke. Chris McGovern’s article on the Trust’s obsession with race is my pick of the week.

Its report into the slavery links of a number of its properties not only extends beyond the its proper function but is boringly one-sided. The Trust ‘cannot put aside skin colour and racial origins when making judgements about people in the past,’ Chris writes. ‘The truth is that the people, of whatever colour and race, have a capacity for both good and evil. They are also, and equally, products of their time.’

In typically shallow grandstanding fashion, our Prime Minister threatened the deployment of the Army to reinforce police enforcement of his latest controversial, if not downright illegal, Covid emergency powers.

Kathy asked The Conservative Woman‘s defence expert Patrick Benham-Crosswell to comment. Bad luck for Boris and good luck for us, it turns out that the Army could not save Mr Johnson even if it wanted to.

Patrick’s piece is properly informed. I trust the Secretary of State for defence, Ben Wallace, will find the time to read it.

Margaret’s pick outside the top ten is David Keighley’s ‘What price liberty now, Mr Raab?’ which reminded the Foreign Secretary about a book he wrote in 2009 called The Assault on Liberty, aimed at New Labour. Sample quote: ‘The government is inflicting lasting damage on the very bedrock of what it means to be British – undermining the fundamental freedoms we enjoy as citizens, our sense of fair play as a society and balances that restrain the state’s ability to interfere in our daily lives.’ As the state tightens its grip on us, the de facto deputy prime minister must surely feel embarrassed at these words coming back to haunt him.
