Thread Name: BS: Jacob Rees Mogg.
Subject: RE: BS: Jacob Rees Mogg.
In a TV interview he was asked for his personal opinions/beliefs and he stated them.
It may cause him political problems or censure.
He is, of course, entitled to hold opinions, and to express them (unless they amount to an incitement of racial hatred).
He could have either declined to answer (in which case he would have been hounded for an answer) or he could have lied.
Would taking either of those courses have made him a better person?
Lying may have made him more suitable to be a politician, but is that a good thing?
