Why THIS man should run Britain!
AT first glance – well, at second and third glances, too, to be honest – Tory MP Jacob Rees- Mogg is absolutely the wrong man to lead this country. He’s just so WEIRD! He speaks Latin, called his kid Sixtus, went to Eton and has his hair done like Mr Logic out of Viz.
He’s polite, well- spoken and tolerant of the views of others. Pah! What a fossil! He even carries a hankie, for God’s sake. Who carries a hankie these days? Much better to sniff and snuffle and dribble your snot over other people like the man on the tram next to me the other day.
Rees- Mogg is stubbornly and proudly old- fashioned.
Some of these old- fashioned views came to light the other day on ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
He’s opposed to gay marriage and abortion – in all circumstances.
As it happens, I absolutely disagree with him in this respect. The idea that a woman would not be able to get an abortion after being raped is horrifying.
But Rees- Mogg is not suggesting they wouldn’t. He’s saying that he does not agree with it.
He’s following the teachings of the Catholic Church, something he deeply and sincerely believes in.
Rees- Mogg accepted women’s abortion rights under UK law were “not going to change”.
He’s respecting the democratic will of the people as reflected by Parliament. Accepting something your fundamentally disagree with?
How utterly refreshing. How un- modern.
The former Liberal leader Tim Farron, himself a committed Christian, was forced to quit because his personal views on homosexuality were at odds with his party and with the majority of the public.
But unlike Rees- Mogg he dodged and evaded. He didn’t have the backbone to say: “This is what I believe – it’s unpopular, I know, but it’s what I believe.”
In – where else – The Guardian, last week, some scruffy- haired harpy called Rees- Mogg a “thoroughly modern bigot”. BOLLOCKS, woman! This man is the complete opposite of a bigot. He could teach the real bigots – the leftie liberals who scream down anyone who deviates from their own iron- hard world- view – a lesson or two in tolerance.
In a world where politicians bend and sway in the prevailing breeze and change course on the strength of one newspaper headline, Rees- Mogg stands head and shoulders above the rest.
Rees- Mogg is mocked as the “Member of Parliament of the 18th Century”. Mocked? Remember, folks, it was in the 18th century that this country laid the foundations to rule the world.
Sounds like a man we should have running the show in the 21st century.
