Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Rees-Mogg apparently knows very little about the period running from, say, Hastings to Bosworth.  Probably knows very little about any other period either.  I suspect his only history book had a title along the lines of "Ripping Tales for Boys."  He's such a moron, he fully qualifies to be a US politician, aside from the citizenship thing.  Amazing how far a double-barreled name can still get you.  As for the Daily Repress, it doesn't know much about much and displays that, well, daily.

He could be governor in several US states. We are not actually very organized over here...

Yes, but there are all those unwritten requirements, e.g., try running for governor in Utah if you aren't Mormon.

The same way the NY rules don't officially require you to be a member of the Cuomo family.

But in New York, you're not threatened with excommunication for voting the wrong way.  You may have a contract taken out on you, but it isn't a spiritual one.

But when Teachout was running against Cuomo, didn't somebody say that women who don't vote for women have a special place in Hell reserved for them?
