31 Jan Melanie Phillips, Queen Canute Of The ProHos

Legend has it that King Canute was the wise one. It was his courtiers and sycophants that told him he could hold back the tide. He knew better.

Queen Melanie knows nothing. You could be forgiven for thinking she’s swopped sides, so hysterical, ranting, embarrassing, damaging to her own cause is this outburst.

It reveals the emptiness, the intellectual dishonesty, the travesty of reason, logic, common sense and humanity that is her argument.

This desperation is yet another sign that we are winning.
