Kathy Gyngell: Coalition nonsense. No normal woman wants to be back at work two weeks after childbirth

So we are officially in denial of biology. In the immediate postnatal period, a mother has no unique role in the nurturing of her...

Kathy Gyngell: We need a road map on how to quit the EU. Don’t expect head-in-the-sand BBC to help

Why was I not at all surprised to read of the huge shortfall in EU spending of £259 billion pounds? Yes, the one to...

Kathy Gyngell: For children, there is no such thing as a civilised divorce

On Monday the results of a survey of 500 children of divorcees commissioned by Resolution, the 6,500-strong association of family lawyers, made the front...

Kathy Gyngell: Shopping vouchers for breastfeeding mothers. A great idea that works

The public health case for breastfeeding is unequivocal. No one today can reasonably argue against its benefits to baby and to society. The message is...

Kathy Gyngell: The contradictions of Douglas Carswell. A libertarian who believes in marriage

On Monday I went to interview Douglas Carswell with high hopes. We, at TCW, wanted to find out where Ukip’s first elected MP stood on...

Caroline Lucas has finally got her debate on drugs law reform in Parliament today.  An e-petition supported by none other than the messianic Russell...

Kathy Gyngell:  Pity John Humphrys. So cowed by the BBC’s femo-cops that he holds up the Saudis as a liberal beacon

The BBC just can’t help itself. Impervious to the criticism that Evan Davis’s non-interview with the verbally incontinent Russell Brand drew from all quarters,...

Kathy Gyngell: Milburn’s social mobility agenda is just a front for more socialist levelling down
