Rather surprisingly my aged Uncle Chris Booker had been dragged by his offspring to see Mamma Mia, Here We Go Again, the sequel to Mamma Mia. He considered that it was possibly the worst film he had ever seen.

The last tgime longtime Harvey Weinstein apologist Meryl Streep rapturously endorsed someone it was when Roman Polanski - a man who sodomised a 13 year old girl before fleeing the US to escape justice - won an Oscar. Boy that Meryl had great taste. But Meryl's big new endorsement, post the Golden Globes, is of the actress and chat show host Oprah Winfrey to run for US President in 2020 for the Dems. Oh please, as a paid up deplorable, I beg of you make it be true.

That Hollywood had a major problem with sexual harassment is beyond doubt. That it is starting to clean up its own Augean stable is undoubtedly a very good thing. One hopes that folks like Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey get their just desserts but also that those who were already rich and secure but who put their own careers before principle and said nothing so putting more vulnerable folks at risk are rightly pilloried. I refer to women such as Meryl Streep and Oprah Winfrey.

Once upon a time, on both sides of the Atlantic, those on the liberal left believed in free speech and liberty. Back in the era of Mccarthy it was we on the right who were, correctly slammed, for stifling debate. I like to think that was an glitch in that for most of us who believe in a small state, freedom of expression is a given, it is part of the DNA of our thought set. It is the Big State loving left that wants to decide what the little people should think and say.
