Week in Review


Six of the Best

Paul T Horgan: Owen Jones and his anti-austerity camp followers are today’s useful idiots

Kathy Gyngell: Has TCW saved the Nobel prize-winner hounded out by the PC mob?

Laura Perrins: Women journalists cannot abide full-time mothers

Belinda Brown: Destructive feminism of Everyday Sexism Project tears men and women apart

Julian Mann: The Ten Commandments provide spiritual and moral rules for life

Nick Booth: We wanted Europe a la carte but we got the rip-off tourist menu


Hero of the Week

An unlikely hero for TCW this week. David Cameron has said he will scrap the absurd child poverty targets legislation.

The definition of relative poverty enshrined in law means that even a small rise in the state pension leads to an increase in average income and, consequently, the number of children living in relative poverty go up. The whole notion was bogus from the start. Let us hope he sticks to his guns and faces down the Left on this.


Villain of the Week

French economy minister Emmanuel Macron has said the UK would not be allowed to create an “a la carte” European Union. He warned that the idea we should enjoy the positive reasons for being in the EU without also shouldering the risks “doesn’t fly”.

What tosh. As Nick Booth wrote for us this week, can we not have a fresh restaurant metaphor? Preferably one that’s accurate – highlighting the fact we stumbled on the place by accident. There are plenty of other restaurants out there we could be dining at.


Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to, Laura Perrins: Gove is an idiot if he thinks corporate lawyers can transfer to the criminal courts, George Drake wrote:

Departments are tombstones. The Department of Defence marks the grave of Defence, the Department of Education the grave of Education, and the Department of Justice is where the corpse of British justice lies buried. There’ll be a Department of Truth next.
