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.

Timothy Bradshaw: Brexit Watch: The great sell-out is at hand

John Mortimer: Lockdown is part of the grand, green, global design

Daniel Miller: For the sake of America, Trump must not concede

Kathy Gyngell: We’re on the fast track to fascism

Laura Perrins: Are you angry? This one’s for you

Kathy Gyngell: A National Alliance Against Lockdown now – or we are lost

Laura Perrins: Lefties want this book burned – you may want to buy it

Laura Perrins: If you supported the lockdowns, shut the hell up about the reckoning

Michael Fahey: We must resist the future being planned for us

Caroline ffiske: Queer theory drags us all towards the gutter

My pick this week is more a call to arms than an article. This, I think, is appropriate given the hysterical atmosphere in which granny-hugging is considered akin to murder.

In Warn your MP: ‘Your seat is at risk over Tiers’  we wrote: ‘The Conservative Woman is giving its full backing to Peter Hitchens’s campaign for a mass write-in to MPs this weekend on the lines of “If you vote to destroy the jobs of others, don’t expect to keep your seat”.’

Wouldn’t it be great if every lockdown-supporting MP woke up tomorrow to a warning in their inbox that, should they not change their tune, their job will be at risk come the next election? With our liberty, economy, and hundreds of thousands of livelihoods on the line, this is not the time to do nothing.

Kathy writes: The spineless Tory MPs who have failed to put up any resistance to the government’s incontinent borrowing and catastrophic lockdown policy, who have happily signed away democracy by rubber-stamping the government’s (arguably illegal) Covid emergency legislation, not once but twice, protested this week about cutting the foreign aid budget.

As Laura Perrins put it so cogently, ‘If you supported the lockdowns, shut the hell up about the reckoning’. 

That’s not the only thing that’s so appalling about this daft group and, I am afraid to say, several carping conservative commentators: it’s their singular blindness to the sheer corruption and waste of foreign aid.

This is set out in detail here by a man who ought to know. To the question ‘Is UK foreign aid a colossal waste of money?’ the answer of Stephen Tye, a former civil servant with long experience of working on assistance projects on behalf of the Department for International Development (DfID) and other aid agencies spending UK money, is a resounding YES. Don’t miss the dispiriting story he tells of his involvement in two projects which graphically illustrate his point. You can read it here.

Meanwhile the number of homeless and tragic-looking men, mostly British, that I see on London’s streets seems to grow daily. Where are the Conservative tears shed for them? 

Margaret’s pick outside the top ten is Paul T Horgan’s ‘Sorry, Suzanne, you’ve been Guardianed’. It really would take a heart of stone not to laugh at the plight of a Leftie columnist who stalks out of the Guardian and whose complaint about being bullied ends up in the Daily Mail. What a perfect example of the maxim ‘the Left will end up eating itself’.
