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. At number one  . . .

Peter Lloyd: It’s time to set ourselves free 

Chris McGovernVE Day and the trashing of Churchill 

Laura Perrins: Why I loathe the lockdown

Gary OliverDown among the Labour Twits 

Karen Harradine: Public call to Ramadan prayer crosses a dangerous line 

Will Jones: We can’t hide for ever from this not very deadly virus 

Caroline ffiske: Now Gavin Williamson must follow Liz Truss’s lead

Margaret Ashworth: Notes from the sticks: Bacup, land of the Nutters

Michael Curzon: Why aren’t Brits welcome down on the farm? 

Timothy Bradshaw: TCW’s Brexit Watch: A German bombshell

Kathy’s pick from the rest of the week:

Richard Harper’s Sorry we can’t always be safe is an elegantly argued case for learning to live with risk again, as we did before:

‘The lockdown may have saved some lives, it may have cost some, we’ll never really know. We normally accept this ambiguity but after this Government’s terror campaign we are now all demanding one hundred per cent safety’.

One of the great joys of and the most rewarding aspects of running TCW is being sought out by (dare I say – discovering) new writers and providing them with a platform. Veterinary surgeon Richard Harper is one such. Read and enjoy his piece here. 

Margaret’s pick from the rest of the week: In When will churches fight for their God-given right to meet? Julian Mann wondered if and when some clergy might defy their leadership and re-open their churches in this time of spiritual need. He asked: ‘How might the police react if theological principle moved some churches to start meeting again? Would they arrest Christian worshippers or issue them with on-the-spot fines? If there were prosecutions, how might the courts react? Would they support the police or would they uphold the ancient British right to peaceable Christian assembly?’ Maybe we will have the chance to find out.
