Does Jacob Rees-Mogg think he has made an adequate apology for Corbyn lie?

I wonder if Jacob Rees-Mogg thinks his retraction tweet is enough of an apology?

He might be asking why everyone is making such a fuss.

Mr Rees-Mogg, as everybody must know by now, doubled down on Ben Bradley’s libel of Jeremy Corbyn last month by issuing another false statement on Channel 4 News – claiming that the Labour leader voted against the Good Friday Agreement.

There was a huge adverse reaction, forcing this response from Mr Rees-Mogg:

I have a feeling he thinks that is enough. His “mea culpa” is an admission of fault, as was “I was wrong”.

It seems to me that he simply doesn’t understand that an act of contrition is required.

Once again, for Tories, it seems “sorry” is the hardest word.

Leading Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has refused to apologise to Jeremy Corbyn after falsely accusing the Labour leader of voting against the Good Friday Agreement.

Rees-Mogg made the false claim that Corbyn had voted against the treaty which secured peace in Ireland to millions of TV viewers on … Channel 4 News.

    Rees-Moog is too arrogant and pompous to apologise. Pity Jeremy doesn’t sue him for his blatant lies.

  2. SkyBluePink

    It’s embarrassing, isn’t it? It’s like seeing a thirteen year old thinking he’s cleverer than everyone else, when he doesn’t realise that he and his motives are utterly transparent. It is also a dreadful indictment of Eton’s pastoral care of gauche and misfit children, to see how both Mogg and Johnson are stuck in these awful defensive-clownish personae, forty years after they found themselves there.

    Are these apparent “mistakes” when criticising Corbyn all that genuine? I heard Rees-Mogg’s confidently-put assertion that Corbyn had voted against the Good Friday agreement and , though I was a bit surprised, even so, I actually started to wonder if Corbyn had had some special, well reasoned argument for doing just that! Do they teach self-confidence at public school, so that the rest of us can be taken in, however mistrustful of Tory politicians we might be? Thankfully, the incorrect information was picked up by Vox Political and others , and I was reassured by being given the truth. But I still feel unnerved at how I can just take what Rees-Mogg says at face-value and having to rely on others to tell me the truth later.

    Is Rees Mogg expected to have ritual public humiliation by self flagelation, he apologised move on. What on Earth is meant by doubling down another meaningless phrase the media have dumped on to us.

  5. Justin

    you have to look at this as a home truth for the tory, the fact there there so full of lies that it has now become normalised behaviour for them and that when truth actually does occur that is probably a lie, as for rees mogg, well he reminds me of the Churchill dog that would be apt description the back window of a car and nod head and everyone”oh yes”
