I agree that if you're anti-abortion on ground of rights of the unborn child (or on religious grounds on killing being a sin) then it'd be wrong to give an exemption to rape victims.

Rees-Mogg seems to have strong principles, which will be fatal to his chances of leading the Conservative Party.  By contrast Boris, with a very Groucho Marx attitude to principles, could go a lot further.  I wouldn't like to predict the result of a Rees-Mogg vs Corbyn election though.  I still think Corbyn's a liability.  It was only the awfulness of Theresa May's election campaign that flattered the Labour Party.

Hi Mik,

I agree about Corbyn, which is why I said coalition. I don't think Labour under Corbyn has much chance of winning a majority. Mind you, we're talking about the same electorate that voted for Brexit, so there's a fair chance that they'd vote to cut their own legs off if they thought it would reduce immigration  Sad

Mogg would be a liability, he'd appeal to a few fanatics, but couldn't win an election.

Mind you .... that's what we all keep saying about Corbyn.

I would love to see Mogg lead the conservative party, because he would be a disaster for them. It won't happen, but if it does a Corbyn led coalition will be laughing all the way to Number 10.

I do think he has been unfairly treated about his position on abortion though. It seems to me that if you think an unborn child's life is a human life, then it is irrelevant how that life came into being. Saying it's OK to have an abortion if the mother was raped is like saying it's OK to kill anybody if they are the product of rape.

Red

To complete the analogy, "and possibly killing the mother as well as a consequence".

He was set up (fair game) by the left wing press. He's gained so much Moggmentum that it was bound to happen really. His honesty will be his downfall though which is a pity because the country is screaming out for a politician who is intelligent, forthright and honest.

And who would like to force his beliefs on the vast majority who don't share them. Tory Classic indeed.

Never a truer word was spoken, Ev.

Mr Dunce's assertion would appear to be false on both counts, unless Mogg is in fact a racist as well as all his other obvious flaws. I blame ADHD.

I don't think that's the case.  He stated that he was not calling for a change in the law and that women's abortion rights were not going to change.  He's just answering a question honestly - and that's bound to be his downfall.  What?  We can't have MPs and possible future Prime Ministers actually stating what they believe, and telling the truth!  Where will it all end? (And that sounds like something Sir Humphry Appleby would have said!)

He has to say that, of course, just as Moggie Maggie lied from day one: "‘Where there is discord, may we bring harmony. Where there is error, may we bring truth. Where there is doubt, may we bring faith. And where there is despair, may we bring hope’ "

Pack of lies from end to end. Never got even close.

Good tactic. Pretending not to like me will make you at least 4 friends on here. Cheesy

Yeah that's a quote that gives me the creeps.

Then again, she genuinely meant it, she wasn't lying. Albeit Maggie's idea of truth was along the lines of Tacitus on empire: "they make a wasteland, and call it peace."

Yes.  Wasn't she copying something someone else once said. Can't remember who and can't be arsed to google.  I always cringe when I see that clip on t.v.  That stupid effected accent (she'd had elocution lessons). At least the Moggmeister speaks that way naturally, same as I speak Essex and you speak Newcastle.  I can't stand put on accents, especially Mockney.  Grrrrr.

I'll have you know I never voted her in.  I was in the throes of labour pains having my son, currently in Mongolia.

She was doing a version of the Prayer of St Francis of Assisi:

Lord make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy


And where there is Industry, let there be a generation of unemployment.

I dare say that doesn't quite qualify as heresy, but she clearly broke at least one of the 10 Commandments every day and practised hypocrisy on an industrial <cough> scale for decades at least.

Their is a petition to get the Mogg entered for the next Olympic 110 metres hurdle event. He'd piss it.
