Six of the best
TCW Hero of the Week
Liz Kendall has gone full Blairite. Two per cent defence spending. Support for free schools. No to the mansion tax. The candidate for the Labour leadership would definitely get our vote over the rest of Labour’s ragtag bunch.
The Tories will be thankful that she’s unlikely to get the support of her party though, it being so dominated by their union paymasters. A Labour Party anchored in the centre ground and led by an impressive woman really would give Dave a fright.
TCW Villain of the Week
Cambridge-educated, champagne socialist Stella Creasy put on the most sanctimonious, patronising performance last night on BBC Question Time. She oozed the pain that exemplifies the moral high ground which the Left seeks to dominate, with little idea of what it actually is like to live in the real world.
Creasy, who is bidding for the deputy leadership of the Labour Party, also this week spoke up for the unions. She is everything that is wrong with Labour – and a significant downgrade from Harriet Harperson. That really is saying something.
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Laura Perrins: Yes Mr Kemp, I do exist, Anthea wrote:
You have put your finger on something here. I have heard many people in the last week saying that they dare not admit to being politically conservative, because of the adolescent bullying and abuse that immediately comes their way. Ironic that those who witter on about ‘tolerance’ never demonstrate any.
The dyspeptic responses from Labour trolls to your post a couple of days ago show that they can’t tolerate social conservatism, either, which is what has driven people like me away from the Labour party. They hate marriage, and don’t think that children need boring old accessories like, ooh, a “father”.
