Jacob Rees-Mogg bashes blogger into submission!

When Bath University student, Hadleigh Roberts, started a satirical blog entitled the “Rees-Mogg Blogg“, little did he realise that old Etonian, millionaire, Pension Fund Manager and now Tory MP for North East Somerset Jacob Rees-Mogg, didn’t have a sense of humour.

Roberts blog (Image Left) lampooned Rees-Mogg. Portraying him as a dimwit embarrassing David Cameron as the antithesis of the ‘New’ Tory Party. Something he seems determined to remind us of, every time he opens his mouth! A true Tory toff, if ever there was one!

Rees-Mogg used his considerable resources to silence Roberts for good.

The offending Website disappeared from view last December in response to pressure from Rees-Mogg’s legal advisers.

Roberts, not unsurprisingly for a student, could not afford lawyers himself. Now he has been forced to sign an undertaking not to revive the offending blog or to mock him in future.

A truly sad day for bloggers, when the rich and powerful can silence criticism so easily!

  1. A sad day, indeed.
    Many of us who have an “active interest” in the actions of our elected councillors and MP’s have found that the media, including the Rotherham Advertiser, the Dinnington and Maltby Guardian and the Maltby/Wickersley News are very selective in whose opinions they choose to print from the public. Of course this is the editor’s perogative, but this can easily become a form of censorship when only certain views are allowed to be heard.
    Let’s hope that this blog keeps censorship-free and un-silenced !
