I think Jacob Rees-Mogg should be made to stand down from Parliament and not come back until he has surveyed every fish in the English Channel on who they preferred to be eaten by. He can spend his days on a yacht calling out questions to passing fish.

Yes this, and he accidentally interviews a box jellyfish and things get heated but Mogg won't back down (of course) and makes an off-colour remark about the jellyfish's kids having an accent and the box jellyfish stings his knob and knackers.

I think Jacob Rees-Mogg should be made to stand down from a scaffold and not come back until hanged by the neck until dead.

Thought he'd moved on to a new enemy - cyclists.
According to Farage's Twitter, China is now our number one enemy, although he's still moaning about immigrants and lockdown - and calling for Tony Blair to join the government to help fight COVID. It's always hard to tell if Farage is a machiavellian mastermind or your drunk uncle shouting at shadows.

Worker protections enshrined in EU law — including the 48-hour week — would be ripped up under plans being drawn up by the government as part of a post-Brexit overhaul of UK labour markets.

The main areas of focus are on ending the 48-hour working week, tweaking the rules around rest breaks at work and not including overtime pay when calculating some holiday pay entitlements, according to people familiar with the plans.

How can you be a businesswoman and be so incredibly dense?

Genuinely hope she goes broke as fuck and her family absolutely despise her until she dies in a really shit old people's home, alone and sad.

More evidence that they literally don't care in the slightest and its all a bit of a joke really.

No reason to not vote for SNP or Plaid now.

Typical Remainer selfishness. No thought at all for the army of Dudley Moores who'll have to remove them.

I've seen people on Twitter start saying that they feel sorry for her, which made me question my feelings towards her and her business, because I took a great deal of schadenfreude from this.

I still don't have any sympathy for her (although I do for any of her employees), she would no doubt class herself as an intelligent person and business savvy, so she was obviously well-informed about Brexit and should have known the risks.

I am really not feeling charitable towards Brexiteer business owners who have fucked over their own business and the livelihoods of their staff. Though no doubt she'll be happy when the Tories save her business by enabling her to re-hire her staff on £1 an hour and work 20-hour shifts with no holiday pay / statutory sick pay / care about working conditions.

I get a hit of schadenfreude too but know that so many of these people just need to survive long enough that they can implement the Victorian Mill Owner model that will have them lauded as amazing business people.

I assume that 40k Brexit costs is just seen as a stake in the long game and separate from the 50k of seafood held up at the border. That looked like live-export anyway so again I assume it's not loss.

Hadn't realised that those were two different stories but my previous post stands as a general point. In this case I am sorry for her employees and her suppliers because it looks like they will be fucked either by going bust or supplying to Youngs / Ross / Whoever for peanuts in the near future. But she didn't vote in a vacuum so I have no sympathy for her outside of I am sorry she is not very good at business.

Massive part of it for these dopes must be the blind refusal to believe they made a mistake, despite all the facts confirming otherwise. The Brexiteer ego can't admit that it's been duped or misled.

So "This is going to be great for Britain" now has to morph into "We always knew this was going to be shit for Britain, but in the long-term it'll be worth it."

I hope she falls into a vat of shellfish, gulps down a few pints of fetid water before being pulled out, then has the shits for the rest of her natural.

She had the same information as people who knew that Brexit was obviously an economically and politically disastrous power grab by the far right that would kill small businesses in their thousands. She wasn’t forced into voting Leave, and she was only deceived as much as anyone else. She had actual money in the game and due to her business position was more vulnerable than most.

And still she voted Leave. I know we’re not supposed to say people like this are dumb, but she really is.

Just wait until it falls to “We always knew it would be great for Britain and it is. Look at the glories of this nation and shut up or you’ll be ejected from your company-owned accommodation and pushed out on the streets into the Covids.

They'll probably use the same "argument" those trying to defend the government's handling of COVID will, complaining about "doom and gloom" in the media and getting annoyed at people attacking the government. Some Tories use the bullshit argument that "it is the Opposition's job to oppose, not the media" ignoring that the media should be holding the powerful to account.

I think her non-response to the "Did you book a seat" question also speaks volumes. Love to have seen the horror on her face when she would have seen a student sitting in a seat while this esteemed professional woman has to be one of those standing.

Of course; her main focus is what's best for the future generations of course.

This seems to be such a massive thing nowadays (or was it always like this and I just didn't notice). Why can nobody admit to being wrong about anything? Is it that we have built a society where "failure" is not an option? Where people can't admit that they're not perfect? Have their been any studies by people who know about this shit?
