"Jacob Rees-Mogg Outwit Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid", Good Morning Britian, ITV (06 September 2017)
Yes, I know this isn't the headline that ITV gave this excerpt from their Good Morning Britain interview with MP (and PM-possible) Jacob Rees-Mogg. They preferred: "Jacob Rees-Mogg Admits That He Opposes Abortion and Same-Sex Marriage", but I can call it what I like, so I have.
And I'm just flagging this up because, frankly, I was impressed by Mr. Rees-Mogg's performance in responding calmly and reasonably to questions designed to trap him. I'm no supporter of the Conservative Party, as even a passing acquaintance with TMR would demonstrate, and I feel no sense of deference towards old Etonians/Oxonians. But I have to hand it to the man: he talked a lot of sense (although I would prefer to talk in terms of biblical authority rather than church authority, but then I'm not a Catholic.) So, for what it's worth, I just want to say: "Well done Jack."
