Rees Mogg is an anachronism, his beliefs are archaic, outdated and serve no useful purpose in the 21st century, not even to the Tory party.

Lets hope he gets the leadership, though I can't see it happening myself, the Tories are not that daft .......... are they.

In a TV interview he was asked for his personal opinions/beliefs and he stated them.
It may cause him political problems or censure.
He is, of course, entitled to hold opinions, and to express them (unless they amount to an incitement of racial hatred).
He could have either declined to answer (in which case he would have been hounded for an answer) or he could have lied.
Would taking either of those courses have made him a better person?
Lying may have made him more suitable to be a politician, but is that a good thing?

He is an arrogant slime, reminds me of a former partner in Binder Hamlin Chartered Accountants - Angus Gilroy!

He is jumping on the Trump bandwagon. Pander to the vociferous minorities to get the gutter press on your side (it sells newspapers) and you are on a winner. I can't see it working this time and I can only hope that it does give enough rope to the Tory party.

Let history repeat itself. The Tories elected a terrible leader who went and lost them their majority. Go on, Tories, do it again -- please!!

"They are his personal beliefs, not those of his party."

Anbody advocation such archaic veiws which adversely affect a huge swathe of the British population is not - surely,
The fact that he admits being mad as a bag of frogs doesn't change the fact that he is as mad as a bag of frogs one iota
Corbyn is upfront in his views and has won the leadership on the basis of his beliefs
Let's hope Jarog puts up and brings a few more out of the woodwork - it did wonders when Loose Bruce came out

Blast, I was still editing that and changing Rim to Tim.


As i was saying, the upshot is such views can make a person unsuitable for the role. That is not the same as a formal disqualification.

Whatever the issue, holding a different opinion to the majority should not, and does not (in itself) disqualify a person from any position in Parliament. However, that is only half the story, or even less than half.
It matters a great detail whether you then attempt to impose your view on the people bia legislation and the fear of that could disqualify him. Then there is the problem thar MPs need to get elected and topics like this candamage a party (cf Rim Farron)

They are his personal beliefs, not those of his party.
I am sure many other politicians have beliefs well away from the mainstream. At Least Rees Mogg has the honesty to be open and upfront about his. With Corbyn it seems a slow drip drip of his beliefs, and maybe that is still only a voter friendly facade we see.

"Mr Rees Mogg is a distinguished parliamentarian and was recently touted as favourite to succeed Mrs May as leader of the Conservative Party."
Lovely cartoon of Jarog in the Times yesterday depeicting him as an unborn foetus in a womb clutching a poster bearing the slogan "anti-gay, anti abortion and saying "Well, that's my leadership plan terminated"
Anybody holding these views and advocates opposition to pregancy termination in the cases of rape and incest should be sent for a cure somewhere, they have no place in public life.
Personally, I would have welcomed him as leader of the Tories - that would send their credibility to the bottom of the deepest ocean where it truely belongs
The man is an utter buffoon, though I'm sure his "nanny" was a very nice
lady
What nest Ake?
Ressurect Mary Whitehouse maybe?

Mr Rees Mogg is a distinguished parliamentarian and was recently touted as favourite to succeed Mrs May as leader of the Conservative Party.
On TV this week he was asked what his personal views were on abortion. he stated that he thought abortion was wrong in all circumstances as it involved the taking of an innocent human life, he said that he followed the teaching of the Cathilic Church in his personal views.
When asked about same sex "marriage", he also said that he followed the teaching of the Catholic Church on that issue, stating that Marriage was a sacrament and could only apply to the union of one man and one woman.

Should these views prevent Mr Rees Mogg from succeeding Mrs May, and do similar views held by devout Muslims equally disqualify them from public office?
