Melanie Phillips Is Honest In Jerusalem

Earlier this week I made the trip up to the eternal city of David. I went up specifically to hear Melanie Phillips speak. Honest Reporting have been holding a series of talks since they moved offices: usually these are small and somewhat intimate on their rooftop deck. It was immediately obvious that they’d need a bigger venue. In the end more than 300 people came.

The whole talk is worth watching if you have the time. Honest Reporting have a good write up of it too. I wish I could disagree with her but I can’t. She’s brutally honest and my feelings after visiting the UK this summer line up with hers.

If you’re interested, you can also see some of the tweets I posted while listening.

    She is SO awesome when she doesn’t talk about her opposition to immunizing children, her opposition to gay marriage because it’s a plot to destroy Western civilization, and how Barak Obama is a secret Islamist.
