The literary editor of The Spectator, of all people

"Davie has faced criticism for using the phrase “virtue signalling”, which was first used in an article in the Spectator in 2015. Ironically, the fiercest criticism has come from the Spectator’s own literary editor, Sam Leith, who accused Davie of using “a fatuous culture-wars catchphrase”.“The term ‘virtue signalling’ is not an argument but a sneer,” wrote Leith. “When you say somebody is ‘virtue signalling’, you’re not bothering to commit yourself to an argument about whether the position they are taking is right or wrong. Rather, you are making a groundless and unfalsifiable presumption about their motive for doing so and using that as the supposed basis to dismiss the whole shebang. It immediately, lazily and arrogantly, frames any assertion of a moral or political principle as an act of narcissism.”

This came from the new Director General of the BBC blundering about trying to make reporters "impartial".

In Boston, there actually is a place called Wonderland, and one of the subway lines terminates there - so a whole lot of sober Boston commuters get on a subway train to Wonderland every day.

US subways have some great station names. Thinking of Far Rockaway in New York (Queens) that sounded like a cross between a 50s song and something out of Narnia.

Of Mice and Men is a great book on living with a mental illness....

Slippery slope banning books, they were written in a different time, instead of removing them from reading lists use it as an opportunity to teach, if we hide the past for the future generations that doesn't serve society well.

Several of those books used to be banned precisely because they addressed issues such as racism, bigotry, and our hugely unequal society. To Kill a Mockingbird, for example.

He has a mustache!
The moustache is irrelevant. This part here is the clincher for me.;

McConnell began medical transition with testosterone therapy in 2013, and in 2014 underwent a double mastectomy. His passport and NHS records were changed to show he was male, but he retained his female reproductive system. He gave birth after suspending his hormone treatment and allowing his menstrual cycle to restart.Both the high court, in September 2019, and the appeal court, in April 2020, ruled that even though he was considered a man by law and had a gender recognition certificate to prove it, he could not appear on his child’s birth certificate as “father” or parent. McConnell had argued this breached the Human Rights Act.
He wanted to become legally a man when it suited him, and a mother when that suits him. He gave birth to a child, presumably either through natural labour or a C-section. That makes him the mother. If he wants to be named as the father, who does he want listed as mother instead?

He wanted to keep a right to reproduce
No one, two fathers,
