Long Bailey, abortion and the hopelessly out-of-touch Telegraph

Jan 20, 2020 by

by Kathy Gyngell, TCW: THERE’S nothing that wasn’t entirely predictable about the outrage train that followed Rebecca Long Bailey’s timidly expressed responses to the question of abortion on the grounds of disability once they’d been dug up and aired (and from which as a result she appears to have rowed back). That’s except for the Daily Telegraph’s headline ‘Rebecca Long-Bailey’s toxic views on abortion matter for all women’.  Yes, you expect fanatical feminists like Sophie Walker of the...

Teenage Nick makes the fake news machine eat its words

Jan 9, 2020 by

by Laura Perrins, The Conservative Woman: YOU remember Nick Sandmann of Covington High School in the United States, right? He was the one who was wrongly accused by the hate-stream media of being very nasty indeed to a Native American. When it became clear that this was a monstrous lie, he was then accused of committing a Facecrime, namely, smiling while white.  Nick Sandmann was threatened, his family was threatened and the school had to close down for a few days owing to death threats. This...

He alleges that the corporation tried to prevent him discussing a historical Sikh religious figure who stood up to Muslim oppression — in case it caused offence to Muslims, despite a lack of complaints.

BBC censors Sikh history in case it offends Muslims

Oct 7, 2019 by

by Archbishop Cranmer: Lord (Indarjit) Singh has been almost as permanent a fixture on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Thought for the Day’ as the Bishop of Leeds, Nick Baines. The BBC likes a certain sort of thought for the day, delivered by a certain sort of thinking person. If you hold a certain establishment status (like bishop or peer [or, preferably, both]) and they like the way you think, you can easily become a permanent fixture, featuring at least fortnightly, if not weekly, and pocketing £200 a time....

Women’s well-being goes by the board in mania for gender equality

Oct 6, 2019 by

by Caroline ffiske, The Conservative Woman: THE BBC has found a new addition to the long list of non-problems we are endlessly encouraged to care about. Last week it explored why so few women are patent holders.  Their research has uncovered the apparently outrageous fact that female inventors account for just under 13 per cent of patent applications globally. One woman for every seven men. We’ll only be able to cheer the BBC reports in 2070 which is the time it will take for us to reach...
