As a brit, and being from yorkshire, I must say that Rees-Mogg is an absolute arsehole
The fish may well be ecstatic, i wouldn’t know, i don’t speak for fish but the hauliers, ferry firms and suppliers may not be feeling so happy right now. If you voted for this mess then fuck you.
Let’s ask David Attenborough.
Must disagree… should be tasting the bottoms he feeds off with with a sensitive pallet as he descends into the circles of shit he has descended into.
“Bloop bloop bloop bloop-bloop?” they said, unwilling as the rest of their country folk to learn any foreign languages.
Of course the fish are happier. The ravens are all leaving.
These Onion articles are getting a bit out of school.
(I’m here all week, folks. Try the haddock.)
Laugh all you want, but what few people know is that Jacob Rees-Mogg has the ability to talk to fish. He has been interviewing fish in the North Sea for weeks to make this claim.
Don’t say that. Nanny will be sad.
That’s an unforgivable insult to absolute arseholes.
He took his nanny to university with him. Annunziata, his younger sister, has never forgiven him for that.
His pathetically glib remark was on the back of the entire fishing industry being on it’s knees after the (pre-warned by everybody) disastrous consequences of the ideological version of Brexit the Tories wanted. If we’d done the Norway option (one of the least bad versions) or stayed inside the customs union this wouldn’t have happened.
This remark was made in response to questions about the tonnes of fish the Uk fishermen had to dump in a landfill because as predicted there is no local market for them, they could not export them fresh quickly enough, and there is no local industry to process them.
But they are happy fish, happy, rotten, killed for nothing, worthless, dumped in a landfill happy.
(Not so) Fun Fact: This catch still counts against their quota!
Fucking tory scum. rees-mogg is one of their very worst.
He’s still got tough opposition in the form of IDS and Priti Patel.
