Jacob Rees-Mogg's awful position on abortion.

    This committee debate is worthwhile to see the goalpost shifting from Mogg in real time.

    Not once does he consider the rights of the woman.

    His constant conflation of the terms, life, potential life, babies, potential persons, people...

    This man thinks the morning after pill should be banned because spunk is the same as an actual person

    Is potential life the same as life?

    Is a potential person the same as a person?

    Should the rights of a 'potential person' be granted equivalence with actual life?

    These are the questions that serious people consider.

    Mogg found a statistic that he can exploit to further a position that taken to it's conclusion results in taking away human rights from actual people in favour of protecting dna

    Another shower with rather à la carte views. They must protect their precious Union, just as long as they outright reject a load of its most fundamental and hard won social policies and be more in line with rural Alabama instead.

    They don't give a sh*te about the Union. Not really. It's noise to distract the fireworks-in-bums brigade while they strip the country and flog it to their pals.

    Seriously overestimating the DUP's cognitive capacity there.

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.

    There always seems a bang of a old Aristocrat in the wheelchair Saying stuff like "My mind races from the damp!"

    What a weird post. Who cares if he's legislating in Ireland. People are discussing his backward views. Nobody was discussing if he's legislating in Ireland or mentioned the far right which you seem to have an agenda in constantly saying doesn't exist.

    How in the name of God does anyone in their right mind vote for him ???

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,273 ✭✭✭xxxxxxl

    No no random politician right wing not agenda from me.

    The DUP must very confused about finding an ultra right wing, upper class, English Catholic so alluring.

    7th post 🤪

    There have been upper class English Catholics since the Reformation when some nobles refused to change their religion. Its touched on in "Brideshead Revisited".

    The Protestant faction, like Thomas and Oliver Cromwell, were in part upwardly mobile "new money" families. Thomas Cromwell's father was a merchant.

    I don't know Mogg's lineage except his father was editor of the London Times?

    Mogg seems to be linked to big hedge funds.

    Seems they're not going to anymore

    UK Polling Report on Twitter: "LATEST SEAT PREDICTION: NORTH EAST SOMERSET LAB GAIN FROM CON @Jacob_Rees_Mogg MAJ: 7.4%" / Twitter

    I will do myself an injury laughing when he gets voted out, his oh-so-reasonable patrician bullshit sets my teeth on edge. I am at a loss as to how anyone who meets him refrains from beating him to death.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,253 ✭✭✭Hoop66

    His "upper class"-ness is entirely performative. His maternal grandfather was a lorry driver. Whose daughter was secretary to William Rees-Mogg, then city editor of the Times.

    Strange that the monocled, top-hatted Jacob doesn't mention this side of his family tree.

    He is an absolute plonker...leaving little passive aggressive notes on people's desks while they are working from home...when in his office he doesn't even have a fecking laptop.

    In fairness he wouldn't have much need for a computer when he was working as minister for Brexit opportunities...

    if you wrote a character like him in a book your editor would send it back and make you rewrite him as more believeable.

    English Roman Catholics are the worst.

    In saying that I can deal with Mogg, he has some extreme opinions, but I have heard his actual opinion on abortion before, he does support it for protecting the rights of the mother, it just has not been quoted here. He is a Roman Catholic Fundamentalist, on the same lines as any god fearing creep this country has to offer, he would flourish in Ireland as a TD all said.

    He is the quintessential Brit, which winds up any bog standard Irish person. When the Roman Catholic church in Ireland were given the full time nod to start spewing their crap in the late 30's, one of the first things they went for was the destabiisation of all things east of the Irish Sea. They were terrified of British Protestantism and owed them one since the reformation. They invented these archetype British hate figures which still exist today.

    Suit and tie's and pin stripe suits were symbols of greed and debauchery, capped men in Currachs or reaping fields were symbols of honest nobility. They cranked about the Penal laws and moaned on about Cathedrals they never even built and then homed in on our sexual freedom, for the big kill. They made sex a symbol of hatred and lust which was bad for everyone. They banned it from our shelves and movie theatres, they attempted to chastise it into riducule, it worked for half a century. You even got whipped on the wrist for being left handed.

    Mogg is not the worst to be fair, he loves his country, makes his money, has a large family, promotes local business, champions educational reform ( very rationally if you read through the hype ). Above all that he is quite smart and obliterates journalists because he is squeaky clean and knows it, no quick pulls on joints at Uni or extra marital nonsense to flick at him. He loves his wife and family and works hard. When you are like this all the opposition can do is attack your democratic preference, the usual modus operandi here is to find something outrageous or contentious you mentioned in a recent interview and blow it up. Basically enrage the outraged and off you go. Booooom.

    The guy had a nanny in his 20s. not a nanny for his kids, a nanny for him. the same one he had since he was a kid.

    Used to have a friend working in admin at Westminster who said there a small few dinosaur MPs hanging round who needed them to print stuff because they couldn't use Google or .gov websites.

    Mogg gets the entire minutes of every session printed to supposedly store in his house.

    Apparently he is a catholic but he’s probably the most high Church Anglican Protestant stereotype one could think of
