Jun 9, 2021 by

by Ewan Somerville and Hayley Dixon, Telegraph: Police forces have been threatened with legal action over their links to Stonewall, amid concerns the controversial charity’s transgender training is impacting their impartiality.

When the police take the knee, the mob takes the streets

May 24, 2021 by

by Paul Goodman, Conservative Home: The eye lingers on three incidents.  A banner at a pro-Palestinian rally shows a picture of Christ carrying the cross, beneath which are the words: “do not let them do the same thing today again”. A convoy of cars displaying flags of Palestine drives along the Finchley Road, and a man shouts through a tannoy from the top of one: “f**k the Jews, rape their daughters”. And a policewoman on another pro-Palestian rally is embraced by a member of the crowd,...

Amy Coney Barrett: an Esther come to the Kingdom?

Oct 7, 2020 by

by Stephen Noll, Stephen’s Witness: […] There is an element of farce in the story of Esther, to be celebrated with hilarity at the annual feast of Purim, one month before Passover; however, the deliverance of the Jews cannot be celebrated without recalling the threat that led to it. So we come to the present and Amy Coney Barrett. Despite the best efforts of her doctors and her expressed wish to survive past Election Day, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies on September 18. On September 26,...
