Rees-Mogg was mistaken: Met Police launches new probe into Covid-19 lockdown breaches by Tories

Jacob Rees-Mogg: it’s all one big amusement to him.

Jacob Rees-Mogg made an ill-fated assertion that was caught on video.

He said a Christmas party that broke Covid-19 rules would not be investigated by the police:

It turns out he was mistaken:

The Metropolitan Police has launched a new investigation into alleged lockdown-breaking parties in No 10 and other official residences during the pandemic.

The force issued an update on Monday saying it was “assessing information and new material” over gatherings in 2020 and 2021.

It includes fresh allegations of rule-breaking in Downing Street and at the Prime Minister’s Chequers countryside retreat in June 2020 and May 2021.

The Met Police will also investigate a Christmas party held by Conservative Party staff in December 2020, after video footage emerged of attendees dancing, drinking, and joking about “bending the rules”.

That’s going to take a lot of hard work, isn’t it? Here’s the video clip:

There are photos as well.

Hmm.

Won’t it be a shame if Shaun Bailey starts his time in the House of Lords by being fined as a common criminal?

Rees-Mogg admitted ‘voter ID’ plan he supported was vote-rigging. Where are the calls for punishment?

Shifty: Jacob Rees-Mogg has admitted ‘voter ID’ was vote-rigging – and failed. He should be punished – but some media outlets would rather misdirect you to something that hasn’t happened, and perhaps never will.

Don’t you find it strange that an alleged newspaper like the Daily Mail would drag readers’ attention – for two days’ running – to a rubbish Labour Party idea to give the vote to visitors from the EU…

… when a former Conservative minister has admitted that the Tory “voter ID” scheme was a genuine attempt to rig the vote.

Speaking at the National Conservatives’ conference (it makes perfect sense that he would be a Nat-C), Jacob Rees-Mogg said:

“Parties that try and gerrymander end up finding their clever scheme comes back to bite them, as dare I say we found by insisting on voter ID for elections.”

The local government elections in England earlier this month were the first at which people were required to bring photographic identification in order to cast a vote – and the electorate punished the Conservatives by taking 1,063 council seats away from them.

The admission is even more serious for Rees-Mogg because he argued in favour of “voter ID” in Parliament:

He must have known then that it was an attempt to gerrymander votes in the Conservatives’ favour – to rig elections. Mustn’t he?

Indeed, Labour’s Dawn Butler has said Rees-Mogg’s admission should be reported to the Parliamentary Standards Authority – or even to the police. The Electoral Commission is another option – although its current status as an arm of the Tory government makes it a poor third choice.

Yet the hard-right headbangers of the Daily Heil want you to concentrate on an idea mooted about by the Labour Party, that is unlikely ever to come to pass.

In light of the fact that election-rigging is a crime, I’ll leave it to you to work out why they might want to do that.

Jacob Rees-Mogg reckons Brexit saved Ukraine from Russian invasion. What?

Funny how Tories try to rewrite history, isn’t it?

Years ago, Michael Gove wanted to change the way history was taught, to whitewash Britain’s harsh colonial past. This Site ran an article about it.

Now, it seems Jacob Rees-Mogg thinks the UK being separate from Europe meant the Tory government was able to offer more help to Ukraine, when it was invaded by Russia, than if we were still a part of the European Union.

The facts say otherwise and that is why Maximilien Robespierre named Rees-Mogg “Fool of the Week”:

Heartbreak for Jacob Rees-Mogg as ‘retained EU law’ bill is delayed indefinitely

Jacob Rees-Mogg: he’s probably furious about this.

A proposed law to ditch thousands of regulations because they were imposed when the UK was part of the European Union has been delayed indefinitely.

The Retained EU Law Bill had already had its progress through the House of Lords paused indefinitely.

But there was an expectation that most of the laws that were copied into the UK statute book after Brexit would vanish at the end of the year.

Then, after it was revealed that the number of regulations affected runs into the thousands – 4,800 so far, allegedly – concerns were voiced that important legislation might be thrown away by accident.

And now it seems the cut-off point will be replaced with a list of 600 laws the government wants to ditch by the end of the year.

Some of us see it as the end of the plan to drop the axe on these laws – and are heaving collective sighs of relief:

Jacob Rees-Mogg, who introduced the Retained EU Law Bill to Parliament, may well be heartbroken.

When the Bill was paused in the Lords, people said they hoped it would spell the end of his hope to set the UK’s economy on fire (meaning, ruin it).

You see, if nobody knows the implications of cancelling these laws, it would make trade with EU countries impossible.

Rees-Mogg should have known that when he introduced the Bill, so it is logical to suggest that it’s what he wanted. Well, it seems increasingly unlikely that he will get his wish.

Did the National Conservatives stop to consider the connotation of their chosen name?

Nat C: this Hitlerian image fits well with the way the abbreviation for Jacob Rees-Mogg’s National Conservatism idea sounds.

It’s times like these that make you realise some Tories don’t have two brain cells to rub together.

It seems David Frost and Jacob Rees-Mogg have come up with a new kind of Conservatism:

According to the article, Nat C-ism is about the following:

A belief in the nation state and the principle of national independence… confidence that the self-governing, democratic nation is the best way that peoples have found to manage their affairs, preserve their traditions and culture, settle their differences, trade and prosper. That belief in the self-governing nation state was the driving force behind the Brexit vote: as polling shows, the main motivation for many Leave voters was for decisions about Britain to be taken in Britain.

So: Brexiteerism.

Also,

a restoration of economic freedom, freedom of speech and anti-woke policies rooted in common sense and in the historic public culture of this country. Underlying this is a belief that the state cannot do everything, but must do properly what it does do: end mass migration so that all may integrate into our nation; maintain law, order and justice; support those who need help, not those who don’t; protect our institutions; and build effective armed forces in a dangerous world.

“Woke” means “alert to injustice and discrimination in society, especially racism” – so “anti-woke” implies ignoring injustice, discrimination and racism. The ideas about the state suggest totalitarian control over what people may or may not do, while choosing who to privilege and who to prejudice against, along with militarisation.

So when people like Sue Jones (below) say…

 

… I’m inclined to agree with them. Nat C? Why not go the whole hog and call them what they seem to be. It sounds exactly the same when spoken.

Jacob Rees-Mogg is set to lose his Parliamentary seat

Jacob Rees-Mogg: he’s probably cursing after seeing these poll results. But what kind of imprecation would this educated toff utter?

It’s turning into a bad week for Jacob Rees-Mogg (and a good week for the rest of us).

Not only has his Retained EU Law Bill been paused on its way through Parliament – possibly never to return (it is rubbish, after all), but…

Opinion polls are showing that he is likely to lose his North East Somerset Parliamentary seat in the next general election.

A swing of almost 30 points in the court of public opinion has been recorded in his constituency.

It’s understood that a Labour candidate would record more than 38% of the vote if the polls were open this weekend, whereas the senior Tory is only projected to fetch 34%.

Personally, I’d prefer it if the Green Party were doing better than Labour but there’s a bit of time yet before the election.

As the ERG prepares to vote against Rishi Sunak’s Northern Ireland deal, its hypocrisy is exposed

Jacob Rees-Mogg: try not to throw up on your screen – it’s only a satirical comment on his rabid nationalism.

This is embarrassing for Jacob Rees-Mogg and all his European Research Group (ERG) colleagues who are about to vote against Rishi Sunak’s ‘Windsor Framework’.

It’s just an improved update of the Northern Ireland Protocol that they all supported to the hilt when Boris Johnson brought it, “oven-ready”, to Parliament.

Have a gander at this video clip in which Peter Stefanovic exposes the hypocrisy:

The ERG was set to vote with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party against the ‘Stormont Brake’ aspect of the ‘Windsor Framework’ today.

Doesn’t it seem clear that this decision is a political move – probably intended to destabilise Rishi Sunak in preparation for a possible return by Boris Johnson?

Economic expert tells Rees-Mogg truths about Brexit; Mogg repeats vaccine line

Jacob Rees-Mogg: he’s got his own show now.

This would be amusing if people weren’t so determined to believe Jacob Rees-Mogg’s falsehoods.

The tweet is clear and so is the video clip:

Best line? “By now even Larry the Cat knows he’s lying.”

More views on Brexit and trade – and none of them benefit Jacob Rees-Mogg

Further to This Site’s analysis of Jacob Rees-Mogg’s response to a wine importer whose firm is jumping through many more hoops to get, after Brexit, the same result as before, let’s have a couple more perspectives on it.

The first is highly in-depth, courtesy of A Different Bias:

The second is a more personal view, examining a small business owner’s frustrations with Brexit – after being told that European businesses would love to trade with him, but Brexit made it impossible because the bureaucracy involved had increased too much:

None of this helps Rees-Mogg, and there’s a very good reason for it:

He was talking nonsense.

Jacob Rees-Mogg is humiliated over Brexit by business owner

The director of a company that imports wine from the EU explained to the BBC Question Time audience how terrible bureaucracy has become since Brexit, and how much more difficult it is to do business.

He pointed out that there have been no benefits from Brexit – the promised money for the National Health Service never materialised and the Tories had to increase the amount we all pay in National Insurance in order to provide any more.

Tory panellist Jacob Rees-Mogg tried to fudge his way through by claiming that bureaucracy had been eased by his government’s decisions – but the businessman, who has experience of the reality, said in fact matters have been made 15 times more complicated:

Rees-Mogg clearly subscribes to the Michael Gove attitude that “we’ve had enough of experts”.

It’s because experts are going to hand his backside to him any time he tries to cross them.
