I’m Voting for this Tory Toff

Just saw Jacob Rees-Mogg on Newsround, discussing the Conservative Party’s selection process. When asked about the Tory’s ability to represent a cross-selection of British society, he answered (and I paraphrase) “you are elected to govern not to merely represent”.

I like it. Unadulterated disgust for politically correct notions of quota based political parties – and apparently he carries “a copy of the European Union's Directive relating to the shape of Bananas with him at all times.”

As someone once said, "Reality what a concept?"

I couldn't help dry heaving when watching that guy. What was with the whistle when he spoke? Apparently Ali G did an interview with him.

Okay, he wasn't brimming with personal charisma, but I still liked what he said.

Would love to see the Ali G interview though.
