    When British Prime Minister Theresa May gave her traditional New Year's speech on December 31, one line -- actually, just one word -- jumped out at me. May spoke of the importance of “taking a balanced approach to government spending, so we get our debt falling but can also invest in the things that matter -- our schools, our police and our precious NHS.” Yes, “precious.” She actually described the National Health Service as precious! Now, one might easily forgive her for describing, say, Britain's finest doctors and nurses as -- oh, I don't know -- how about “treasured”? Or...

    Fictional Cold War warrior James Bond should be played by a woman, Theresa May has said, hailing the new female Doctor Who as a victory for “girl power”. Speaking on a flight to Cyprus last week, where she gave a Christmas address to troops at RAF Akrotiri, the prime minister revealed she was a fan of the BBC science fiction show Doctor Who, and lauded the public broadcaster’s decision to cast Jodie Whittaker in the iconic time traveller’s role. “I think it’s a great move forward for girl power that there is going to be a female Doctor Who. And...
  • Traditional Depictions of Mothers to be Banned in Ads Next Year Amid War On ‘Gender Stereotypes’

    Cooking, cleaning mums will be banned in advertisements across the UK from next year, following a study which claimed traditional gender roles are “harmful and outdated”. The decision to tighten regulation was announced by the Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP) this week, after a report published in summer identified gender stereotypes in adverts as a driver of inequality between men and women. “Wherever they appear or are reinforced, gender stereotypes can lead to mental, physical and social harm which can limit the potential of groups and individuals,” the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) alleged in its study. Depictions deemed problematic include...

    Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory said today he can’t believe voters are willing to set the bar so low by returning Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty to office for four years. “It’s as if the people are saying it’s okay to have a low standard of behaviour for politicians,” Tory said on radio station CFRB this morning as he tried to explain how his campaign got derailed and how the Liberals’ “dishonesty” trumped his effort to change the tone of politics in Ontario. Two polls released yesterday show the Liberals walking towards a majority government and his PC Party finishing a...

    The Conservative Party long ago decided that too much talk of the British way of life, like too much loud opposition to immigration, made them sound crypto-racist. That left the patriotism card for Labor to play. Indeed, as the Conservative Party has moved rapidly to the left, whole swathes of policy have been left open for Labor. Cameron is greener-than-thou, positively enthusiastic about public spending and skeptical of George W. Bush.
  • Marriage Vote Signals Conservative Party's Abandoned Values (Red Tories hijacking the party)

    Canadian Activist: Marriage Vote Signals Conservative Party's Abandoned Values By Chad Groening December 8, 2006 (AgapePress) - A Canadian pro-family activist admits he is bitterly disappointed that the Conservative government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper failed to restore traditional marriage to the people of Canada on Thursday. The vote was 175-123 against Harper's resolution calling for marriage to once again be defined strictly as a union between one man and one woman. The liberal Globe and Mail newspaper began an article on the vote with a bold pronouncement: "Same-sex marriage is here to stay." Although pro-family leader Brian Rushfeldt, executive...

    The other day, the guy on my local radio station mentioned that The Passion of The Christ was the Number One movie in America. ‘So congrats to Mel Gibson,’ he said. ‘And it’ll probably hold on to the Number One slot until the new Starsky & Hutch opens.’ It’s always useful to keep things in proportion. But, in fact, Starsky & Hutch opened and The Passion cleaned its clock. Last weekend, it took in $51.4 million, as against S&H’s $29.05 million. By then, The Passion’s total gross was up around $212 million. Pace my radio guy, mid-Seventies nostalgia is no...
