Subject: BS: Jacob Rees Mogg.

Mr Rees Mogg is a distinguished parliamentarian and was recently touted as favourite to succeed Mrs May as leader of the Conservative Party.
On TV this week he was asked what his personal views were on abortion. he stated that he thought abortion was wrong in all circumstances as it involved the taking of an innocent human life, he said that he followed the teaching of the Cathilic Church in his personal views.
When asked about same sex "marriage", he also said that he followed the teaching of the Catholic Church on that issue, stating that Marriage was a sacrament and could only apply to the union of one man and one woman.

Should these views prevent Mr Rees Mogg from succeeding Mrs May, and do similar views held by devout Muslims equally disqualify them from public office?

"Mr Rees Mogg is a distinguished parliamentarian and was recently touted as favourite to succeed Mrs May as leader of the Conservative Party."
Lovely cartoon of Jarog in the Times yesterday depeicting him as an unborn foetus in a womb clutching a poster bearing the slogan "anti-gay, anti abortion and saying "Well, that's my leadership plan terminated"
Anybody holding these views and advocates opposition to pregancy termination in the cases of rape and incest should be sent for a cure somewhere, they have no place in public life.
Personally, I would have welcomed him as leader of the Tories - that would send their credibility to the bottom of the deepest ocean where it truely belongs
The man is an utter buffoon, though I'm sure his "nanny" was a very nice

They are his personal beliefs, not those of his party.
I am sure many other politicians have beliefs well away from the mainstream. At Least Rees Mogg has the honesty to be open and upfront about his. With Corbyn it seems a slow drip drip of his beliefs, and maybe that is still only a voter friendly facade we see.

Whatever the issue, holding a different opinion to the majority should not, and does not (in itself) disqualify a person from any position in Parliament. However, that is only half the story, or even less than half.
It matters a great detail whether you then attempt to impose your view on the people bia legislation and the fear of that could disqualify him. Then there is the problem thar MPs need to get elected and topics like this candamage a party (cf Rim Farron)

"They are his personal beliefs, not those of his party."
Ake asked whether he si fir to hold office as Prime Minister - not what his personal views were
Anbody advocation such archaic veiws which adversely affect a huge swathe of the British population is not - surely,
The fact that he admits being mad as a bag of frogs doesn't change the fact that he is as mad as a bag of frogs one iota
Corbyn is upfront in his views and has won the leadership on the basis of his beliefs
Let's hope Jarog puts up and brings a few more out of the woodwork - it did wonders when Loose Bruce came out

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?

Rees Mogg is an anachronism, his beliefs are archaic, outdated and serve no useful purpose in the 21st century, not even to the Tory party.

Lets hope he gets the leadership, though I can't see it happening myself, the Tories are not that daft .......... are they.

Well, Only the usual "suspects" Iains, Nigel, and DmcG, have said anything of interest, or even addressed my question.

Nobody has commented on the issue regarding devout Muslims and their suitability for office.
The Muslim faith teaches that homosexuality is a cardinal sin, punishable by death.....Abortion is of course completely proscribed.
But you all love the Muslim faith.....don't you?

"have said anything of interest, "
Then again, you are not interested in facts - you certainly refuse to respond to them
Your postings become more and more like unqualified graffiti
"The Muslim faith teaches that homosexuality is a cardinal sin, punishable by death."
So does the Christian faith in many cases - punishable by eternal damnation - far worse for a believer
"But you all love the Muslim faith.....don't you?"
If I thought you would respond with actual evidence, I'd ask you to produce a single shred of proof of this statement - you won't so I will settle for failure to do so as evidence of it being pure invention on your part
Why do you do this Ake - it isn't even dignified, let alone logical

What do you know about dignity, you are a cheap ranter with nothing to contribute.
Mr RM makes the point avoided by many "liberals", that human life begins at conception. He sees the anomaly in a 24 week old foetus having the "right to life", yet a 23 week old does not.
It has also been brought to my attention that a child at full term can be legally killed if the child is disabled...this may or may not be true perhaps someone on the thread knows?

If one accepts the principle of the "right to life" one must oppose abortion.
Nigel makes some good points, Had Mr RM lied or refused to answer, would he be a better person.....do we actually want politicians who habitually lie.
Mr RMis very well liked in political circles by people of all political persuasions, he has an excellent grasp of parliamentary procedure and uses reasoned argument at all times.....unlike most of the "contributors" here, but I have no doubt he will be hounded by jackals like Morgan and his sidekick from now onward.

"What do you know about dignity, you are a cheap ranter with nothing to contribute."
Very wel argued ake - I doubt if I could aspite to that level of discussion
"right to life"
The right to life, as advocated by the anti-choicers, doesn't apply to mothers who stand to die if their unborn children's life is at stake, or to the raped pre-teen children who have ben refused terminations when their lives were at risk.
A great deal of thought and discussion ahs taken place to decide time limits of when pregnancy termination is permissible and not and laws have been made on the basis of those discussions - only the medievalist fundamentalists like yourself still oppose them - based largely on the demands of superstition-ridden celibate old men who don't even regard women as important to hold office in their churches
You describe me as "out of date", but, as with homosexuality, you still plouter round in medieval darkness
You really are something else

I do not anticipate this thread lasting too much longer.

Rees Mogg is articulate and certainly not stupid. Any policies he may introduce depend on his party's backing. His personal thoughts and beliefs may or may not sway his party and/or the electorate.
He is apparently a politician able to give honest answers, even if controversial. The usual pack would obviously prefer to hear what they want to hear from a politician. maybe they even believe what they say!
Now what about bliar blair and weapons of mass destruction. Led us into an illegal war.

What is more important: having a personal belief in banning abortion?
                        Taking a country to war and having a
                        responsibility for the ensuing death toll

Squeals on a postcard please!

Anytime Rees-Mogg has appeared on Question Time he acquitted himself far, far better than his fellow panellists. Anytime he spoke to address a point EVERYONE fell silent to listen to what he had to say - Not always the case on that programme:

"Mr Rees?Mogg previously described the victory for the Leave campaign as "a wonderful liberation for the country", adding "no political event in my lifetime has been better or more exciting for the nation".

Following a particularly impassioned speech in the Commons earlier this year, Brexit secretary David Davis declared: "As ever, my right honourable friend speaks for England."

The question of a second referendum was raised and Mr Rees?Mogg calmly declared that democracy must be respected.

On Question Time he added: "This is characteristic of the EU, vote in a way that Brussels does not like and you have to vote again until they have done what they tell you.
[Ask the electorate of Ireland that is precisely what has happened to them TWICE now]

"It seems to me that we had a referendum, we voted to leave and that must be implemented or we deny democracy."


As for this:

"Rees Mogg is an anachronism, his beliefs are archaic, outdated and serve no useful purpose in the 21st century, not even to the Tory party."

Well I will grant that he is honest and has integrity which does set him out as being liable to accusations of being "anachronistic" in comparison to our current crop of politicians. But greatly to his credit, he does not squat down in railway carriages and complain about there being no seats when there is documented video coverage of the fact that there were seats available.

As for "beliefs being outdated" - I do not believe that he would waste anytime attempting to restore the reputation of Leon Trotsky a-la Jeremy Corbyn. But I suppose to some on this forum that is real "finger-on-the-pulse" stuff.

I much prefer an honest politician, anachronism though the species may be. Could have done with more of his ilk when dodgy dossiers were being conjured up, and force fed to the unsuspecting electorate as holy writ.
Rather than bringing the desirability of religious affiliations into the equation, where again any proposals having a religious slant would need party support and parliamentary approval to make any headway, I would prefer to ban anyone holding dual nationality from holding any kind of public office.
What nationality would have the over riding loyalty?
Think Brexit and dual anglo-french, anglo-german nationality, or anglo-irish.

Despite all that, Teribus, thing is, he's a twat.


I don't think he should be banned from being Tory leader. I think he's the ideal candidate. The sooner the better! As for the indignant and Islamophobic nonsense of the opening post, the obstinate fact is that he can't be banned. However, he CAN be not selected by the Tories. They are the only people who can "ban" him. And they suck, so let 'em get on with it, say I.

In fact, despite all these claims about his alleged honesty, his antediluvian telly outburst about abortion and gay marriage was a coded message that he doesn't want to be Tory leader in a million years. As a matter of fact, he's always said that he loves being a back-bencher. Not so straightforward after all. Typical devious politico, in fact. 😂

Rees-Mogg's catholicism came from his Irish-American grandmother, the male line were protestant vicars and coal owners in north east Somerset. Members of that family both baptised some of my ancestors into the anglican church, and sent them to work down coal mines at the age of 11. Of course, not only did the catholicism come into the family by that route, so did the new money as the pits in Somerset were exhausted by the late 19th century. A bit like Churchills and Vanderbilts really. If he can be shown to be entitled to either an Irish or an American passport, then I would agree, in this one instance with Iains, that he should be banned from public office. In Australia, people seem to have been decreed to be ineligible for office as they have been found to have nationalities that they were entirely unaware of.

Being eligible for dual or multi-nationality is one thing. Actually applying for it and holding it is another entirely. Does anyone KNOW that Jacob Rees-Mogg HOLDS either an Irish, or American Passport? I rather doubt that he does. I think that having had an Irish-American grandmother is a bit tenuous for claiming US Citizenship - might even be true for the Irish connection as well - can't really be arsed to look it up but I think it has got to be direct parent, and even with that there are qualifications.

By the bye Shaw I would rather have hoped by now that you would have realised that I am not in the least bit interested in your opinions on anything. Were that not the case, the fact that you seem to have such a particularly low opinion of the man would only recommend him to me better than a glowing reference from anyone else - If he has prompted your ire then he must be doing something right.

I would imagine that most thinking Catholics, Joe included (who, sensibly, probably isn't reading this) would distance themselves from this chap's intolerant and bigoted outbursts. You don't have to be in favour of abortion to accept that it's the right of any woman to make those decisions for herself, even if you accept restrictions. You don't have to like the idea of gay marriage to accept that ordinary, decent human beings want to embrace that for themselves and that, when they do, it won't do you or anyone else one iota of harm.

He sees the anomaly in a 24 week old foetus having the "right to life", yet a 23 week old does not.

Leaving the specific issue aside, he knows full well that every law introduces such anomalies. Why is someone of sixteen allowed things that a sixteen-year-old-less-1hr is not? Or 18 years olds allowed to vote, but 17-and-11 months can't? Or women of a certain age can retire as 65 but those born a day later they have to wait to 67? Laws introduce boundaries, and the exact point of that boundary is a balance of many competing interests; it is a consensus not, in most case, a matter of anything specifically logical about the choice. So pleading this specific law as anomalous is mendacious, in my view.

Let's be clear, Keith. The Catholic Church has an extremely intolerant official line on homosexuality, thus:

Homosexuality is addressed in Catholic moral theology under two forms: homosexual orientation is considered an "objective disorder" because Catholicism views it as being "ordered toward an intrinsic moral evil", but not sinful unless acted upon. Homosexual sexual activity, by contrast, is viewed as a "moral disorder" and "homosexual acts" are viewed as "contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity."

The Catholic Church teaches that marriage can be made only between a man and a woman, and opposes introduction of both civil and religious same-sex marriage.The Church holds that same-sex unions are an unfavorable environment for children and that the legalization of such unions is harmful to society.
[wiki]

In essence, that's as bad as it gets in any religion. How Catholicism actually responds to homosexuality may be a different matter, especially in some western countries. But I don't disecern much scope for softening in that official doctrine, and, as Jim says, as a Catholic believer you are going to hell if you act on your homosexuality.

"The Tory backbencher, who's been widely tipped to replace Theresa May as Conservative leader, possibly Prime Minister, stressed that he "supports the teaching of the Catholic church," suggesting that same-sex weddings are a sin.
He also insisted that he doesn't support abortion under any circumstance, including rape.
"Plenty of Catholics believe in gay marriage," Susanna Reid fumed.
Mogg elaborated: "But marriage is a sacrament and a sacrament lies with the church and not with parliament."

That is not true, Keith. Heterosexuality, whether within or outside marriage, is not regarded as "an objective disorder ordered towards an intrinsic moral evil." The only common position is that Catholicism regards acting on it outside marriage as sinful, which is an entirely separate issue. You can't get away with ignoring that fundamental distinction. You appear to be defending what amounts to the institutional homophobia of the Catholic Church, which attempts to conceal its intolerance of homosexuality under a mass of faux-rational doctrinal verbiage.

To say that people should be put to death or imprisoned because to their sexual behaviour is surely "hateful" no matter how unhealthy it may be?

The media has brainwashed a majority of the public into supporting idiocy....parliament which contains a large over representation of homosexuals have turned that idiocy into law.

When the church decides that those who follow their natural instincts or takes steps to save the lives or well-being of women will burn in hell, that becomes spiritual blackmail
The facts that these rights are written into British law makes someone like Mogg totally unsuitable to lead Britain politically
You people prate enough about those of other religions who follow or advocate practices that you don't agree with, but when it comes to your own particular branch of fundamentalism - "crown 'em king'
Family planning and sexual choice are had-fought-for rights in our society - electing someone who opposes the rights of the majority of the population of britain is not fit to captain a rowing boat across Newsham Park lake, never mind lead a country.
You are defending fundamentalist views that you oppose for other communities

Getting back to the abortion issue, is their really anyone who does Not believe that live begins at conception? That is surely not a religious tenet, but a biological one.
If we accept that fact, every abortion is in reality the destruction of an innocent human being.
Is there really anyone who thinks that the power of life or death of an unborn child should be left in all cases solely to the mother?
I think it was DMcG who mentioned "Red lines"(excuse me if I am wrong "D"), but red lines seem to be the ultimate idiocy when dealing with human life. As I said already, why should a 23 week old foetus be regarded as disposable and a 24 week old protected by law?
Why should a full term child be killed because of disablement?

All hugely controversial issues.......not a "given" as in the doctrine of "liberalism"

Keith has repeatedly tried to claim that the Church regards sex outside marriage for everybody, gay or straight, as equivalently sinful. What he mischievously and disingenuously leaves out of the equation is that the Church does not recognise gay marriage and is therefore condemning all homosexual people to a celibate life. He then claims that the Church is being somehow accommodating to homosexual people. You really couldn't make this up. The truth is that the Church is viciously opposed to gay people exercising their human right to have sex with whoever they want. There is nothing warm and cuddly about it. On top of that, he is defending "sincerely-held views" held by people in an organisation that attempts to enforce those views. If you hold the "sincerely-held view" thst gay marriage is wrong, then it's my sincerely-held view that you need to keep it to yourself, shut up about it and accept, for chrissake, that two gay people getting married hurts neither you, them nor anyone else in the slightest way.

I'm reading a book named "The Burning Time" by Virginia Rounding which demonstrates vividly how the churches sought to control public attitudes and public behavior to the extent that people who disagreed with the church were burnt to death. Unsurprisingly the criteria of whether you were judged to be heretical changed over a very short period. As little as six years between 1532 and 1538.

I somehow feel that the likes of Rees-Mogg would be quite content with a return to that era.

SPB-Cooperator ever heard of people behaving responsibly? Have you got some marked objection to that? ANYONE who has bigger families than they can support quite frankly can be legitimately labelled as "freeloaders" as they have those families in the full expectation that the rest of us have to pay for them, and that any shortfall is "society's" fault.

Anyone making the conscious decision to have a family must do so in such a way as to always have their children's best interests at heart, not secure a living off child support - you get child support/allowance for two children then all after that are your own responsibility. There again personal responsibility is something that "socialists" do not accept - they never have done.

"Getting back to the abortion issue, is their really anyone who does Not believe that live begins at conception? "
Is there really anybody who wishes a return to the archaic laws of forbidden termination and chemical castration
These are now fully accepted - we reach compromises on the question of whether we want families or not for all sorts of reasons - overpopulation, personal situations, the fact that sex is not and has never been solely for procreation, rape, incest.... millions of reasons
How about the morality of forcing a raped 11 year old child to endure a pregnancy for the sake of not destroying an unborn fetus - in one case the victim had also acquired two sexually- transmitted diseases - humanity or barbarism?
Several years ago a patient at Galway Hospital died after being refused a life-saving operation "because Ireland is a Catholic country", she was told
Humanity or barbarism?
If human life is so precious, why would you people rather watch dead children being pulled out of the sea rather than granting them asylum?
Why do you Pro-lifers invariably support the manufacture use and sale for profit of weapons capable of killing and maiming dozens, even thousand people at one go?
I find very little pacifism or even humanity when it comes to that taking of life in these cases.
But when it comes to the edicts of mother church.... that then becomes a different matter.

I read the link, and it agrees with my comments. Nowhere is there a one day cut-off that causes a two year delay in pension/retirement dates.
The closest is that a woman born in December '51 will have a pension date 2 years after a woman born in January '51. Hardly a 'cliff-edge' change is it? (effectively it is a one year delay, not two years)
And if retirement/pension dates have to be increased then it is bound to be the case that there will be a period when women work longer without reaching their pension dates as quickly as their elders. But from the link you gave this is being phased in in a reasonable way.

People are living longer, and will be retired for a greater portion of their lives. The pensions have to be paid for from somewhere.

With women (on average) having a longer life-span than men, I think it's not before time that pension ages are moving towards equality.

Here is the Church's own statement,
" being homosexual is not wrong or sinful in itself. But just as it is objectively wrong for unmarried heterosexuals to engage in sex, so too are homosexual acts considered to be wrong."

They have no ruling on gay sex. Their rules on sex apply to everyone.
You have failed to make a case that they are hostile to gay people.
They are clear that they are not.

Your statements about the Church were false and wrong.

They do not allow same sex marriage, but nor does any other religion in the world, or most countries in the world and until about ten years ago any country in the world.

before any decision was made the civil service and the political establishment should have been prepared for the consequences of a leave vote. the conservative leadership at the time were irresponsible because they took a political gamble whilst being unprepared for the political consequences, it would not surprise me at all if they elected rees mogg and lost and deliberately abdicated responsibilty, so that another party had to deal with their gamble and lack of foresight.

By the way Nigel
"not secure a living off child support "
This has always been a slanderous Tory myth aimed directly at the poorer people of Britain - a smear on the British people by the privileged and comfortable - our "betters"
Family allowance is pitifully small in Britain - no family could possibly get a "secure a living" from it
"A family with two children can claim nearly £1,800 a year in Child Benefit. In the 2017-18 tax year, you can claim: £20.70 per week for your first child. £13.70 a week for any further children."
The purpose of family support is to keep a poor family's head above water, not to "secure a living" - it is to stay alive

This from the Financial Times, April 4th 2017
The UK government will this week stop giving extra benefits to families when they have a third child, to encourage people to "consider whether they can afford to support additional children".
Until now, tax credits ? which provide extra money for unemployed and low-income families ? have increased by up to £2,780 a year for each extra child. From April 6, families will not receive extra income for third children born on or after this date. The restrictions will be extended to all new claimants from November 2018 onwards, regardless of when their children were born.
The policy is ultimately expected to save taxpayers about £3bn a year but it will take time for the savings to build up. Families will continue to receive child benefit, worth £700 a year for each second and subsequent child, provided neither parent earns more than £50,000 a year.
The new policy, announced by George Osborne in the July 2015 budget, is a change of direction for the UK.
Under successive Labour governments, between 1997 and 2010, support for families with children through the tax and benefit system increased significantly in a concerted effort to reduce child poverty. Support for larger families grew more quickly than support for families with only one or two children.
The tax credit cuts for larger families contribute to the Conservative government's manifesto promise to reduce welfare spending by £12bn by the end of the parliament. A secondary motivation is "explicitly . . . to affect the decisions low-income families make about how many children to have", said Andrew Hood of the Institute for Fiscal Studies think-tank.
Mr Osborne said the changes would make the tax credit system "fairer and more affordable" by ensuring that people receiving tax credits "face the same financial choices about having children as those supporting themselves solely through work".
But Alison Garnham, chief executive of the Child Poverty Action Group, said the changes were "pernicious".
"Our analysis shows another 200,000 children will be in poverty once universal credit [which is replacing tax credits and three other means tested benefits] is fully rolled out, directly because of this cut," she said. "Surely children should not have their life chances damaged because of the number of siblings they have."
A third of children already in poverty live in families with three or more children.

Your squalid party really is the pits
On the one hand, you have a bunch who are forcing cuts on family sizes by withdrawing support - in esssence a cull.
On the other, you are considering electing a leader who believes that women who might fall pregnant by accident or through rape should be forced to go through her pregnancy and bear her child
This feller applies this to cases where it is known in advance that some children will be born with physical defects or that forcing a woman through an unplanned pregnancy could effect either her mental or physical health - or both, which could add enormously to the cost of rearing such a child
What kind of people are you?
Perhaps your government has in mind what happened in Spain after the Civil War there when the victorious party set up a clandestine industry to steal children from Republicans and give them to the more deserving Franco supporters!
It is estimated that up to 300,00 newborn children were stolen from their families and sold to wealthy ones - they were known as "Los niños robados del franquismo" [The kidnapped children of Francoism]
Now that would be a lucrative industry to help Britain stand on its own two feet in the Brave New World of Brexitism

"You and Steve are just bigoted and prejudiced against Christianity and have utterly failed to make a case."

"Now Rome complains that the Anglican Communion is affirming gays through blessed unions and full admission to the priesthood. The complaint is no surprise. In 2008, Benedict labeled homosexuality as a "destruction of God's work" on a par with the ruination of the tropical rain forests. Gays, he said, threaten "the order of creation." This is less blatant than, say, the "God hates fags" sign carried by Protestant fundamentalists at Matthew Shepard's funeral in 1998, but the drift is toward the same hateful conclusion."

SPB-Cooperator - 09 Sep 17 - 03:54 PM

"the implication of your post that those below a certain income are only getting pregnant to sponge of the stet is reprehensible."


Really SPB-Cooperator? Reported in May this year - Super-sized families on state handouts cost British taxpayers £21.2million each year in child benefits. Breakdown is as follows:

- Families of 8 children - 2095 families claim £12.7 million in child benefit.

- Families of 9 children - 800 families claim £5.4 million in child benefit.

- Families of 10 children - 270 families claim £2.1 million in child benefit.

- Families of 11 children - 85 families claim £697,000 in child benefit.

- Families of 12 children - 30 families claim £267,384 in child benefit

- Families of 13+ children - 10 families claim £96,252 in child benefit.

At no point at all in my original post did I mention income, as Shaw pointed out child benefit gets paid to all - what I did refer to was the ability to provide for the children any couples chose to have.

So, being homosexual is not wrong or sinful. Fine, but engaging in sex outside marriage is sinful. Yet the church does not allow homosexual marriage so by that very act it denies any homosexual the right to have sex without committing sin. The promise of hell may not be for being homosexual but by denying homosexuals the right to marriage the church is committing them to hell for having sinful sex.

Doesn't really make a lot of sense does it. Little wonder that the church is rapidly losing members.

They responded by saying how the sister's child is thoroughly normal in every way. Naturally, she then denies it and comes out with little tales of how he has not been so normal.

It has turned out that many here hate the man because of his views, although they are perfectly legal, because he is rich, because he is a Christian and because he presents himself as a social conservative.

Correct. No special rules for gay Catholics. The same rules for gay and straight.

They do not allow same sex marriage, but nor does any other religion in the world, nor most countries in the world and no single country in the world until about ten years ago, and still a large minority against even in those few countries that do now allow it.

You have no case that the Catholic Church persecutes gay people as claimed. They do not.

Stupid, stupid, STUPID post, Keith. Most of us already think you're a fool. Why do you post stuff that just confirms our suspicions?

This "handouts" malarkey. Here we have a chap, moaning about what he calls "handouts" to the poorest people in society, who is economically inactive himself and who crows about how much his shares have gained this year. Now you buy shares with your excess money. Then you sit on your arse doing nothing while your shares "make" money for you. I'd call that a handout. I wonder whether he sends back his old age pension, another handout to people who are no longer economically active. Now I have to breathe the same polluted capitalist air so I don't complain about people putting their savings into shares (though bragging about them is a different matter), or about getting my pension from a fund that invests in shares. But I do object to the hypocritical attitude of someone who no longer works who sits at home while the pensions and share dividends roll in (which, if he's lucky like my now 94-year-old dad, will go on for many more years to come) complaining about the far more meagre "handouts" to the poorest in society. Perhaps he's like me, with one of those "gold-plated" final salary pensions. Maybe he needs a sharp reminder that the capitalist system that has been so good to him wouldn't exist without the stark inequalities that sheer humanity demands are corrected by "handouts," unless of course we'd prefer to have millions living on the streets. Of course, we're now going to get a litany of reasons why he deserves all his rewards whilst the poor should shut up and stop having kids. Just one thing about those kids brought up on those "handouts". A lot of them are now the doctors, nurses and care-home bottom-wipers that are going to look after him in his prosperous and lengthy old age, if they're not already. Maybe he'll be telling a care-home worker doing the night shift on the minimum wage how lucky she is. Maybe he could advise her which shares to buy.

I also think the wealth gap is a disgrace and that it can only be remedied by a socialist system, but we have widely differing opinions on how that should be brought about. You appear believe that a revolution or a continuation of the battles of the last century can accomplish what they failed to do in the past when the "working class" were an organised section of political opinion.
I believe that only unity and all our people working together can bring about a fair society.

Hello there Raggy I see your arithmetic has improved since you were trying to work out votes in Irish Referendums. Trying to tell us that that is the only benefit claimed? What would the other "entitlements" be.

"Here we have a chap, moaning about what he calls "handouts" to the poorest people in society" - Shaw

The poorest people in society? Where was that stated?

Now as for being "economically inactive" Shaw is that your rather long winded way of saying retired?

The crowing "about how much his shares have gained this year." was actually detailing a personal example what has happened financially over the past eighteen months since the electorate of the United Kingdom voted to Leave the EU, which rather countered your "doom'n'gloom" mutterings.

"Now you buy shares with your excess money." - What a strange expression Shaw? What is "excess money" Shaw - disposable income perhaps? What do you do with yours Shaw? From your posts you would appear to "Oikishly" guzzle and munch your way around the place on Cornish Pasties, "sprouting purple" and cheap plonk - your choice.

"Then you sit on your arse doing nothing while your shares "make" money for you. I'd call that a handout."

Ah Shaw, I may not be doing anything but my money is. It is invested in companies that employ people and pay their wages, my money invested pays for research and development, it allows companies to expand and employ even more people. It provides profit and of course dividends that pay people's pensions.

"I wonder whether he sends back his old age pension, another handout to people who are no longer economically active."

Wonder no longer Shaw, I do not return my State Pension as I worked throughout my life and contributed on the higher end of the scale towards it - in short Shaw I earned it. I did not at some opportune moment decide to yell, "Oooh me back", then sit back on benefits (Unemployment, disability, income support, housing and child benefit) until I could lift a pension that I had barely contributed to. Of course it is not just the state pension I rely on for income, I receive three other pensions and my own private pension is yet to kick in - before you ask I also earned all of those and paid into the latter using that "Excess Money" you were wittering on about instead of squandering it.

By the way Nigel
"not secure a living off child support "
This has always been a slanderous Tory myth aimed directly at the poorer people of Britain - a smear on the British people by the privileged and comfortable - our "betters"
Family allowance is pitifully small in Britain - no family could possibly get a "secure a living" from it
"A family with two children can claim nearly £1,800 a year in Child Benefit. In the 2017-18 tax year, you can claim: £20.70 per week for your first child. £13.70 a week for any further children."
The purpose of family support is to keep a poor family's head above water, not to "secure a living" - it is to stay alive

Your money, which you paint as a charitable institution that alleviates all the problems of the world, also pays large share dividends to people sat on their arses doing nothing. Oh yes, you get your cut all right! I note that your unfocused rant did not address the uncomfortable fact that your successful capitalist achievements rely on massive inequalities in society. Without those, you and your fellow clever moneymakers wouldn't have the incentive to roar ahead and leave the poorest even further behind, which is what has happened in this country for several decades by every measure. Anyway, do enjoy counting your dividends and working out your percentage gains. I hope it makes you happy.

By the way, we own our own very nice home, mortgage-free, in a half-acre garden, half a mile from one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, and we both have pensions on top of our old age pensions that enable us to live comfortably and go on several European holidays a year. Four in 2017. I eat approximately three pasties per annum. It's probably best if you try to not judge the lifestyles and the means of people you know nothing about.

Let's see now, what is Shaw's latest whimsical notion? Explain to us all Shaw how does someone "sit at home doing nothing except soaking up other people's money"? What makes it "other people's money"? Who are these "other people"? I am absolutely fascinated to learn.

As far as I am aware the concept runs as follows:

1: Individual has an idea that he believes would be a commercial success.
2: He starts up a business in a small way and confirms that he has a viable concern.
3: Demand for what he produces increases, but he cannot expand his business on his own because he does not have the necessary free capital. He can go into debt by going to a bank, or he can look for people who would be willing to invest capital in his business in return for a share of the business.
4: He goes for the latter because that shares the risk without burdening the business with debt. In return for their investment the shareholders in the enterprise can see the value of their investment grow in terms of trading figures and with increased assets and they, depending upon how the board of directors decide get a share of the profits.
5: Of course it can all go "pear-shaped" and the venture could crash, in which case the assets of the business are realised, sold off and the proceeds shared out amongst the Inland Revenue, the listed creditors and shareholders in that order.

OK then Shaw where does "other people's money" come into the equation?

Just love the way you middle-class socialists worship at the alter of irresponsibility, where there appears to be only rights and no obligations.

Tell me Shaw, Stu, Carroll what percentage of you yearly income do you give to charity?

By the way very few people, if any at all, in the UK these days "change nappies", most would not even know how to fold one. What is in common use today are these "Pampers" things - from a father of four who both cooked for the family and changed their nappies, soaked and washed them back in the day when they were nappies.

Is that your only complaint against the Catholic Church on this?
If so we do not disagree.

Jim, this is the official, current view on homosexuality from the catholic Church,
" being homosexual is not wrong or sinful in itself. But just as it is objectively wrong for unmarried heterosexuals to engage in sex, so too are homosexual acts considered to be wrong."

No discrimination, except the marriage thing which is still almost universal.

Well Shaw I suppose it all depends on how you view children doesn't it.

I see once again you yammer on about "the poorest in the land" - poverty doesn't enter into it as far as child benefit goes - it is one of those "universal" benefits.

One way of viewing children by young teenage girls at one time was if you got yourself pregnant and had the sprog you could then play the system to get the points needed to get a flat where you and your mates could hang out. No real interest in the child and the child grows up deprived in a single parent "home".

Personal responsibility Shaw something you should have instilled in the students you taught. Shudder to think what it was they took away from school having been under your tutelage.
