Jacob Rees-Mogg shows how powerless Commons Speaker is

Last Updated: September 24, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , ,

Commons Speaker Lindsay Hoyle tried to put Jacob Rees-Mogg in his place after the Business Secretary took details of a new policy to the media rather than announcing it to Parliament first, as is required.

But Hoyle has no power here. Nor does Parliament. Rees-Mogg’s behaviour shows us that the UK’s democracy is flatlining.

    Parliament is now a dinosaur and must be immediately abolished! The fascist tories are enacting what their former convict little fascist dictator duck johnson did which was to ignore Parliament and issue whatever policies he liked directly to the media instead of informing Parliament first! Now Rees baby is imitating his former master and Speaker demonstrates he has no power whatsoever!

    Get rid of Parliament because we don’t have a democracy we have an authoritarian fascist dictatorship!

    He is the most ineffectual Speaker I have ever seen in my long life! He is NOT doing his job, seems too inclined to kowtow to the Tories. however badly they behave.
