So That Was Completely Ridiculous. Inefficient, Outdated, Unnecessarily Risky, Politically Motivated Farce. Pretty Much Sums Up The Governments Response To This Whole COVID19 Crisis.
Just rejoined the queue for the second vote and have a committee starting in 20 minutes, no way this will be done in 20 minutes. This is an absolute farce.
If you are on newsnight today, please do not hold back on today's ridiculous parliament decision.
Dispatch box touched hundreds of times in 20 minutes in the new voting system, potentially spreading this horrible virus throughout parliament. As soon as ReesMogg sits back down in front of it, it's cleaned for him. Awful human being.
On the latest Tory plan to dismantle democracy ...
This is precisely what corruption looks like; when a shambolic gov limites the voting powers of MPs & eradicates accountability. In the digital age, an incompetent imbecile like Jacob_Rees_Mogg humiliates a democratic institution & spineless Tories vote for it.
A truly horrific day for politics in the UK. MPs who are elderly, disabled or have a chronic illness are no longer allowed to vote/speak in Parliament. Meaning 17m people are no longer represented. All because BoJo can't fight his own battles and ReesMogg is still in the 1800s.
Dear Parliament some of you are moaning you had to queue to vote & blaming Rees-Mogg, Boris & co for "this nonsense". Sounds to me like they wanted to remind you what the rest of the country has had to do for weeks. Remember us? The voters? We don't moan though, we just do it.
This is Article 21 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Removing the right of people to be represented by their MPs runs roughshod over this.
Will be like: 'yes, it's true, the MP's DID queue along half a mile to vote'.
Scenes in Westminster today are a joke. Queueing for miles for 40 minutes when they could just vote electronically. What a waste of resources. It's such a stupid idea that Jacob Rees Mogg should resign for forcing it through.
Us plebs have had to queue for many things in the last 9 weeks, come rain or shine. MPs are not happy now they have to do the same for work. "We should be able to do it electronically" you say. We tried that for shopping but couldn't get a slot for weeks. ????
So much for "we're all in this together" I think MP's just don't like being on display to us plebs.
Tories really are going for broke, aren't they? ? They've given up any pretense that they believe in democracy, fair-play, equality or human rights.. Greasy Smogg vote today was just one of the last nails in our Nation's coffin.. RIP UK.. ? ????????
?ELECTION UPDATE : Printing of 17 million ballot papers for the General Election will commence today, the Government Printer said.
Rowing? Jolly voting weather And yet more Tory sleaze. Blades out for Keir Starmer, Rees-Mogg rules by decrees. They're all posh Nazis together, With our bodies beneath their knees. Yes we'll all swing together....
You know about the alternative SAGE committee. How about we have an alternative Parliament composed of honourable members who have actually landed in the 21st century? Just leave the dinosaurs in the Gormenghastian chamber and ignore them.
Imagine voting to prevent your colleagues from being able to fully participate in parliament. An absolutely shameful day, and just the latest in a long line from this government.
- looks as bad as queuing at IKEA .
BREAKING : Pictures have emerged of Tory MPs voting in Parliament this afternoon Rees Mogg.
Even with an 80-seat majority BorisJohnson is terrified of democratic scrutiny. He really does think he's an absolute monarch doesn't he? A king who isn't answerable to the people. They keep getting away with pissing all over our constitution. They are NOT democrats!
This is precisely what corruption looks like; when a shambolic gov limits the voting powers of MPs & eradicates accountability. In the digital age, an incompetent imbecile like Jacob_Rees_Mogg humiliates a democratic institution & spineless Tories vote for it.
Tory MP Stephen Crabb votes the wrong way twice, despite Jacob Rees Mogg's new system being so much easier than pushing a button.
