FOR the season of Advent I have decided to pray the Rosary for the conversion of Jacob Rees-Mogg. But isn’t he already a Catholic, I hear you ask. Yes, yes he is. When I say conversion, I mean I am hoping and praying that the man will come to his senses and stop supporting Boris Johnson as he takes a wrecking ball to the country.
As many of our readers will know I had high hope for Rees-Mogg. He was one of those MPs who stood up the media, didn’t roll over at the first sight of trouble, and has survived a fair few media storms. This shows courage. Sadly, he has completely and utterly surrendered when it comes to this lockdown. When the chips were down, his courage vanished.
JRM likes to hide this cowardice behind his frequent uses of Latin, just like Johnson likes to hide his utter incompetence and downright evil plans behind ludicrous wartime analogies. Be very aware, dear reader, of those who are not straight talkers.
This is a trick , I am told by James Delingpole, that was taught at Eton – if you are in a muddle, try to muddle others. Bamboozle them with language they may not be familiar with. Johnson and Rees-Mogg are fast becoming a gruesome twosome to rival Whitty and Vallance.
So it is time to get out the Rosary beads and pray for the conversion of Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Leader of the House, so that he opposes this ruinous and evil lockdown. I pray that he can finally see the writing on the wall, the mission creep that has developed from ‘three weeks to flatten the curve’ to ‘we might have a vaccine next Easter so we might be able to loosen some of the more draconian restrictions on your life and liberty’. I pray that he sees the wicked nature of Sage in demonising family gatherings and ordering us to drag our Christmas table into the freezing garden and catapult some Brussels sprouts over to granny who is sitting, terrified, in the Wendy house, avoiding her grandchildren. I pray that he sees just how evil this lockdown is.
I admit I doubt if I will get through the whole five decades of the Rosary every night. But I am sure I can do at least one. I ask you, dear reader, to join me. We are at a pivotal stage now. If we let these Covid-fascists trample over us now, I doubt if we will ever recover. So get praying for courage and wisdom to be given to our MPs and for the conversion of Jacob Rees-Mogg in particular.
