Jacob Rees Mogg argues that the European Union is a threat to democracy. SUBSCRIBE for more speakers ► http://is.gd/OxfordUnion Facebook @ http://fb.me/theoxfordunion Twitter @ http://www.twitter.com/OxfordUnion Oxford Union Website @ http://www.oxford-union.org/ Jacob Rees Mogg opens a new front against the EU over their alleged "contempt for public opinion." Mr Rees-Mogg claims this is shown not only by the Commission repeatedly demanding referenda on EU treaties until they are approved, but by its role in the removal of elected leaders of countries such as Greece and Italy. The EU gives a voice to extremist parties such as Greece's New Dawn and France's Le Front National. Their successes, amplified in EU elections, have become a destabilising influence on member states' democracies. MOTION: "THIS HOUSE BELIEVES THAT THE EU IS A THREAT TO DEMOCRACY" Filmed on Thursday 24th October 2013 ABOUT JACOB REES-MOGG: Jacob William Rees-Mogg is a British Conservative Party politician, who has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for North East Somerset since the 2010 general election. Rees-Mogg is in the Eurosceptic wing of the Conservative Party. ABOUT THE OXFORD UNION SOCIETY: The Union is the world's most prestigious debating society, with an unparalleled reputation for bringing international guests and speakers to Oxford. It has been established for 189 years, aiming to promote debate and discussion not just in Oxford University, but across the globe.

Great speaker, I have never been impressed with any conservative politician before, but Jacob Rees Mogg speaks with passion and absolute clarity, and what he says here rings absolutely true.

I don't care if Churchill rose from his grave. If you are looking for a stereotypical British parlamentarian for your next movie or show, no actor in the world would be as convincing as Rees-Mogg. Probably also worth contacting if your movie is a "Harry Potter but now a lot older" film.

American here. I'd just like to express how proud I am that my electoral system is so famously terrible that this Honorable Member of Parliament has had to borrow an American term (gerrymandering) to describe malapportionment in Europe.
Raymint (2 days ago)
The worst thing about this speech is that he speaks of a level of corruption and gerrymandering that we allow our own government to get away with. He, for lack of a better word, compounds truths to utter lies - like the entire Commission being undemocratically appointed. Although it is technically true to call one part of the Commission, the civil servants, ‘unelected bureaucrats’, the expression equally applies to national civil servants, which also happen to be ’unelected bureaucrats’. Every government has bureaucrats which are by nature unelected. The heads of state and government are not unelected bureaucrats, but directly or indirectly elected by voters in each member state. The ministers in the Council of the European Union are representatives of democratically elected national governments and therefore indirectly accountable, rather than being unelected bureaucrats.

The eu is going for that communism. Knife stabbings every day. Acid attacks every day. Muslim grooming gangs. Silencing and jailing of conservatives. Islamic terrorism. Massive welfare fraud. Gender politics. Guilt complexes. Socialism. England is a big mess. Brexit should sound like a blessing. But so many soyboys and libtards. I think England is fucked and will be Englandistan soon.

the EU sounds pretty damn undemocratic... Its hard for me to understand why people in Britain would be so eager to give up their political freedom. But then again, the media and the elite are rather good at convincing people that less freedom is precisely what they need.

Self-hating libfascism has been taking over the West for a few decades, but seems to have reached critical mass now. Even the US is now grappling with it, in the "culture war" and call-out culture. I'm wondering when there will be a genuine right-wing backlash.

He is pointing out the weaknesses of the EU, but none of them are impossible to resolve. What he does not mention: How will a Medium size country like the UK negotiate with much larger countries such as China, the US or even India in the future? That’s the benefit of the EU besides it’s peace track record: a stronger position towards the real superpowers. Meanwhile the UK will have a similar power in the world like Switzerland: almost none.

You don't get it there's a power struggle between The Government and The EU listen to it again, there's no changing The EU cos they're a bunch of bureaucrats now who now want to be the be all and number 1 and have clawed their way into the highest levels of government and the general impression is they seem to regret setting up The EU altogether and allowing such a cooperation to exist in the first place they understand the mistakes they've made and it's a seriously worrying thing The EU are trying to bring down the power of The Government. As much as politicians are usually idiots they're The Government and the only thing standing between us and a completely mad cooperation that The EU have become, i saw this as soon as Brexit started of what The EU truly are and it baffles me everyone is still asleep despite everything we've been through even losing our homes cos we were pushed into a Recession, every country is in HUGE debts cos we were busy paying The EU billions but now everyone is asking Why are we paying them just to be a member of a cooperation? especially since they're just taking advantage now... all i can say is you'd be a fool to think you could change The EU, soon as they set up their bank (which they were told not to) they went down the drain... doesn't matter if they fire every single person part of The EU then hired new ppl it will end up back the way it is. Power corrupts most people most of the time.

Thank god i found an intelligent video with ACTUAL intelligent people who really know what's going on "No man should be judged in his own courts" instead they dragged people over here to The UK as soon as they set up GDPR like they did with Mark Zuckerberg a situation i completely sympathize with because he didn't know what was going on or how his data was being used along with thousands of other companies... but they picked on him and in the end got money out of him anyway... because THAT'S all they want is money... i didn't even have to watch the full "hearing" that took place to see the bullying, degradation, humiliation and manipulation going on by The European Union i saw it all how they operate... and they took him on a witch hunt... and they've tried to do so to other people too... why some US Media Companies refused GDPR and blocked us from viewing their Media it's a trick to get money NOT about "Privacy & Safety* of our information. The state they've got our planet into though JUST to get all the money and power in the world is the worst and someone told me on Reddit that in 1993 people opposed The UK to join The European Union because they saw it being a giant mistake and Guess What? they were right... and being only 3 years old at the time i'm appalled at the idea that other people SO easy to manipulate SO trusting can make decisions for me where i cannot even comprehend what is going on resulting in the situation we're in NOW of our lives being messed with, losing our homes, tremendous stress and pressure put on us daily, the way people behave towards each other with ZERO Human Respect because they only want what THEY want... Not to mention all the opportunities they've taken from us, the corruption and Fraud they've created on a mass scale... it's just an absolutely unbearable situation where you can't move, can't do anything, can't live your life the way you want to cos everyone just wants your money and taught to behave like this on an extreme scale... they put you down, bully and degrade you, fob you off and tell you that you CAN'T do anything you try to go out there to do... i've been through it all... and the oppression of the slightest bit of Creativity and Independent thought shows you how much The European Union has dug themselves into every cooperation in the world and dictate everything when THEY AREN'T THE GOVERNMENT!. The very fact they can even control The Government is VERY VERY dangerous especially considering the way they're acting with extreme oppression and dictatorship, even after everything though ppl are STILL fast asleep... which helps The EU get what they want... i didn't even KNOW The EU existed until it started being all over The Media, i didn't know any other cooperation was even controlling my way of life but yet even I SEE how much destruction they've created in our lives after learning about them. Little known fact is The EUs bank almost completely crashed after the 2008 Recession and hasn't recovered since THAT is why they won't let us leave but from what i've read it doesn't matter who leaves or doesn't... cos it's predicted within at least 10 - 20 years time they're gonna completely collapse but it will most definitely speed up their collapse if more than 1 country leaves and right now it's looking like more than 1 has an interest in leaving, i hope it's true because i will be SO GLAD to see them go... for a start they shouldn't even even set up their own bank and currency i believe you told them NOT to but the question is Why didn't anyone stop them knowing it wasn't the right move? because they probably already had power in higher places... all i know is they HAVE to go... it's okay to admit you were wrong about deciding to form such an organization but now we got to get on with fixing this mess but you REALLY need to write some laws and regulations with zero loopholes to stop any such organization being formed again and to stop other organizations interfering and gaining power in higher places.

Because Remainer ultras (who voted for the Ref) are trying to overturn the result at the wrong time. They should have done this by vetoing the ref and not campaigning for parties who claimed to honour the Ref. Instead, they're now blocking no-deal by redefining what "leave" means (= staying unless you get a deal from an organization that is not likely to give you a genuine deal *because it wants you to stay!).* It's the ardent Remainers who are instituting a coup, not BoJo.

Rees-Mogg is so far ahead of his opponents intellectually that I almost feel sorry for them; almost. Boris and Jacob are two of the main influences in my moving from left-of-centre to a moderate conservative. Britain has no business in the EU; Make Britain Great Again! So glad Boris is P. M. Next, we need to send Sadiq Con-man packing and find someone suitable to run the greatest city in the world.

Ron sAx (10 days ago)
Not so sure that this is a factual thing, or simply the gross misrepresentation of a party that feels sovereignty, power and control is its absolute political mandate. As far as the 'undemocratic' practices of the EU are concerned I know this: the European commission has 28 commissioners (one from each country), they draft, enforce and monitor EU laws, but they do not pass them. The laws are agreed by the council of ministers from the 28 EU governments and the European parliament. There is qualified majority voting, so laws are passed if they are backed by 16 out of 28 countries that makes up at least 65% of the EU population (UK has 13% of EU population, so gets a 13% vote share). Objection to a draft law can be raised if one third of the national parliament oppose it, which means the EU commission must review it ( aka the yellow card). If more than half of Parliament oppose a law, this can force a vote in the European parliament or council, (aka the orange card). There has also been agreement on introduction of a red card, meaning the commission would be forced to adapt or drop the law if more than half of Parliament objected. None of this is the same as saying that the EU is perfect, but in the face of a Government willing to suspend its own Parliament from the democratic business of representation of its own electorate, by what means is the EU undemocratic? Frankly speaking the EU referendum was prosecuted on fears of mass immigration, and therefore has become a charter for populist xenophobia that is devoid of a historical immigration context e.g. Americas, Caribbean, Africa, Australia, India (or simply excluding the 22 countries of the world that the UK has not invaded or tried to control!). Personally the UK should leave, then we will see if it still rules the waves, or whether it has been simply fooling the knaves!

He's just pointing out the obvious that most ppl STILL don't want to see cos they've gotten too used to The EU even when we've only been in for 26 years give or take, we in The UK only joined it in 1993 when i was 3 years old lol anything going on in The Media it's just The EU who don't like anyone who supports Brexit, doesn't matter in what way if it's wanting to drop out altogether or this "plan" thingamajig that's only an idea right now and not a legalized thing but they'll oppress either side. If you try to speak any way about supporting leaving on Reddit you'll get bombarded with Down Votes, it shows how much control The EU have and they have control over most other politicians too why they're acting the goat and somehow can't decided on anything cos The EU want to push us into stopping Brexit thus why Corbyn is fear mongering and over exaggerating any uncertainties after we drop out, The EU has got to go they aren't The Government... what i hate the most is only being 3 years old things are decided for me in our world and how our society should be and as far as i knew b4 Brexit i thought there was only The Government that existed but my future has been messed up by all these corrupt bureaucrats and i'll have no choice but to just work for money spending most of my life doing that like most of the population. I'm not happy one bit about that cos i'd like to do a job i enjoy but alas... my life has been lead in the total opposite direction...

Brexit is a real threat.......to the Rees Moggs family business profits. His company made £103 million in the last 5 years, the parent company is based in the Caymen Is and they paid no tax. He wants Brexit to happen before the EU introduces laws to force such companies to pay tax. A conservative does not have your best interests in mind. Don't fool yoyrself. It is pure self interest, as it has always been and will be forever more.

Britain is a threat to its own democracy by having 1) unelected lords that has major influence over legislation 2) one of the least trusted press in Europe 3) a first-past-the-post system that in practice wastes a whole lot of votes - in some constituencies even the majority 4) election rules that can be broken without consequences, even after the election commission has proven them 5) a government that interferes with police investigation like another banana republic 6) a government that threatens businesses to agree with them publicly or they won't be included in trade deals 7) a referendum that was not just based on vastly more lies than almost any other European election, but where the winners even seek to break almost every promise made (money for NHS, keep UK in single market, not break the GFA, go for a Norway/Swiss model etc) 8) use of prorogation by PM to circumvent parlament and implement his own will (not the people's, they didn't vote for no deal) In Britain, all four branches of government has been corrupted; The executive, the legislative, the judicial and the media. Ironically, the Jacob Rees-Mogg who claims to fight so hard for democracy, has been a major player in tearing it apart at home. Why? Because the EU were implementing means to stop tax avoidance and because he and his buddies can make a ton out of betting against the pound and then buying shit up once the economy has crashed.

I cant quite agree with the argument about Malta having more voting power per head since it is based on the same principle as my own nations electoral college, that being to ensure that the larger states cant just ignore the issues of the smaller states. But even the largest disparity in power, that between California and Wyoming with a single vote in the rural state worth a bit more than three times as much isnt anywhere near the 15 between the UK and Malta. That's ridiculous even if I do understand and appreciate the logic behind it.
