Following on from ‘Milifandom’ and Momentum, the Conservatives are fighting back with a campaign for fuddy-duddy aristo Jacob Rees-Mogg to become their leader.

Jacob Rees-Mogg!

Apparently the movement supporting him is called Moggmentum – seriously! – and is full of people like this:

Of course, the suggestion has been met with reasoned arguments in response:

… and if you don’t think that’s a reasonable response, then you don’t know Jacob Rees-Mogg. This is a man who took his nanny canvassing with him in Central Fife, a mostly working-class constituency. It is no wonder he speaks in that plummy, received-pronunciation way – he’s so far out of touch, his tongue has probably gone numb.

But he’s a nasty piece of work. Look at his voting record:

This is a man who wants the poor to be constantly-monitored slaves and the rich despots. And people are campaigning for him to be prime minister.

Meanwhile, the arrival of his sixth- sixth! – child has been greeted appropriately by the media, both mass- and social:

He appeared on the BBC’s Question Time yesterday (July 6) and, despite being afforded more uninterrupted time than the others by chairman David Dimbleby, still managed to be exposed as a hypocrite over tuition fees:

And those who defend him – as some kind of bastion of common sense, of all things – are being shot down on the social media:

Last word – for now – must go to this Twitter user:

Be warned – this story is not likely to go away. And be prepared – we must all be ready to stop Rees-Mogg from getting anywhere near making 10 Downing Street his latest taxpayer-subsidised residence.
