Just should have avoided speaking to the kids. The man was right there.
bit of a dick move and make you look like the worst sort of social justice warrior
whats wrong with the good old half brick aimed at rees mogg traditional and gets the point across
plenty of grassy knolls in that part of Somerset, someone really should just cut to the chase.
Other Home. Country pile Home, not tine hise Home.
Yes, thanks to people like Rees Mogg, much worse has happened to others.
I know, it's only a couple of hills away from me. But this latest thing was in London.
He herded his kids out of the house knowing full well he’d get political capital from exposing them to the demonstration.
On the one hand Bone is/was a dick. On the other so is/was R-M for repeatedly using his kids as props for photo opportunities, opening the door (literally!) for them to be exposed to this kind of treatment. Neither of them come out well from this skirmish in the class war.
I'm surprised he was apparently able to come face-to-face with Rees-Mogg without calling him a cunt.
Irrelevant gesture politics imo.
ian's not a one-insult man
even worse then being called sixtus
if rees-mogg is prepared to do that to his own son - HIS OWN SON! - you know he'll do much, much worse to others.
yeh, ian gave a display of unforgiveable rudeness by speaking about rm like he wasn't present.
Bone’s achieved nothing but making himself look like a knob. Media savvy he ain’t.
shit happens. i never thought his appearance on the jonathan ross show went that well, but ib bounced back and he'll bounce back from this too: he's nothing if not resilient.
e2a: i really don't think it went as badly as you do.
Jon Bigger's written about it here:
Class War at the Rees-Mogg Residence – Media and MPs in Hyperbolic Rage
They shouldn't have targeted the children, they should have implemented a socio economic systems intended cause them hardship and disenfranchisement.
all the rees-mogg children can help their ma and pa excavate the south atlantic canal network.
I really don't get the outrage over that. The Rees Mogg family knew of that protest three weeks in advance and it shows in the video, they are clearly relaxed and not at all intimidated, even the children are smiling and laughing. They are not distressed at all. I call snowflakes on this nonsense! If people really cared about children then they would do something about the real suffering that working class kids are going through thanks to politicians like Rees Mogg, not worry about some toff's privileged, pampered family.
Nah. Their experience will be useful to me at my governor's residence in Grytviken (or Stromness if the other exiled Tories can refurb the Norwegian villa there to my standards.)
all you'll need to do is call out a number between one and eight
Where am I?
A Somerset village
What do you want?
Well you won't get it!
By hook or by crook, we will
Who are you?
I am Rees Mogg the Second
Who is number one?
You are number Sixtus
I am not a number! I am a free man!
after seeing all the shithouse liberals line up to solemn face condemn the action I now endorse it fully.
This made me feel uncomfortable. An error of judgement on CW's part.
should have gone down in larger numbers: publicity needs to be improved.
and fairplay to the cartoon aristo bore, he took same approach when heckled at some meeting last yr - as all the usual suspects virtue signalled furiously, he (rightly ) brushed it aside
Massively, but hardly out of keeping with their form. It's no more embarrassing than what the SWP or various student radicals get up to in the name of the movement I guess. But still embarassing if someone at work asks you if that's the kind of thing you agree with etc.
I was a bit surprised to see Bone asked the nanny if she was paid enough, seemed like that was a fairly clear red line for any activist, you don't put someone you don't know on the spot in front of their boss. But then I doubt CW care very much about what the labour movement thinks about this stuff.
This was the bit that did it for me.
Don't give a shit about shouting at the kids. It's not great, but meh, not that bothered.
But giving the nanny shit, absolutely wrong.
