TCW Week in Review


Six of the best

Nick Booth: Don’t shout at lefties like Owen Jones. He is secretly working for us

Laura Keynes: Commitment-shy men lie behind the fertility crisis

David Keighley: How the BBC ganged up to smear Ukip

Paul T Horgan: Sell off Channel 4 as a dry run for privatising the BBC

Laura Perrins: We should ask ourselves why men won’t commit?

Alistair Thompson: BBC supports death penalty, but only for the terminally ill


TCW Hero of the Week

Jill Kirby, a regular contributor to The Conservative Woman, put in a stellar performance on Thursday’s Question Time. She was unafraid to tell it as it is on Dave’s EU renegotiation myth.

When asked what changes she would like to see Cameron come back with she said: “big, fundamental ones…We need to govern ourselves. Britain should have the confidence to set ourselves free and stand on the world’s stage. I think we can’t go on as part of Europe…we should be standing alone.” We congratulate Jill on having the courage to speak the truth.


TCW Villain of the Week

Charlotte Church claimed this week she would happily pay tax at a new top rate of 70 per cent. Sure you will, Ms Church. It’s all too easy to talk the talk. But when you are a celebrity with an estimated wealth of £11 million, maybe it would be better to walk the walk?

When it was suggested to her she can donate extra to Treasury coffers, without waiting for a mad Marxist to take the helm, she suddenly backtracked. “Public services cost 100s of billions to fund” and she doubts her paying more “would encourage the richest in this country to get a conscience and follow suit”. She’s just another champagne socialist with no principles. Maybe we should show her the Laffer curve.


Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to Paul T Horgan: Sell off Channel 4 as a dry run for privatising the BBC, Kingbingo wrote:

Frankly if I were Cameron I would have the BBC shut down entirely the day after the election.

But Cameron is not a conservative like me, and I have given up on him doing anything a conservative would.

Nevertheless, a good halfway house suggestion Paul.
