Moron of the Moment – Laurence Fox


Laurence Fox has morphed from a much loved tellybox treasure into a tedious twerp; his new political party deserves only ‘destination dustbin’

Just as Nigel Farage is yet again “contemplating a return to frontline politics” (no surprises there given his past on-off-on-off and again antics when he’s in need of a bit more ‘wonga wonga’), another tedious loudmouth is sticking his oar in also.


Laurence Fox, whom we saluted as a ‘Hero of the Hour’ for quite rightly calling out the ‘MegExit’ saga as self-absorbed nonsense in January 2019, has sadly since morphed into a bit of a nutter and not only has decided to launch a political party, but also had ‘Freedom’ and ‘Space’ tattooed in a most ghastly fashion on his hands.


Fox – whose acting abilities in Lewis made him a middle-aged housewives firm favourite between 2006 and 2015 – has, it seems, changed from a “shy around women, sensitive and a bit naïve” Harrovian school boy into a BNP-esque bully determined to “fight the culture wars” (whatever they are).


The actor has allegedly raised £5 million already for his ludicrous ‘cause’ and “hopes to stand dozens of candidates across the UK” for a party he has provisionally named Reclaim. On his website, he pompously states:


“Over many years it has become clear that our politicians have lost touch with the people they represent and govern. Moreover, our public institutions now work to an agenda beyond their main purpose.”


“Our modern United Kingdom was born out of the respectful inclusion of so many individual voices. It is steeped in the innate values of families and communities, diverse in the truest sense but united in the want and need to call this island home.”


“The people of the United Kingdom are tired of being told that we represent the very thing we have, in history, stood together against.”


“We are all privileged to be the custodians of our shared heritage. We can reclaim a respectful nation where all are included and none are ashamed to have somewhere to call home.”


“I have been so encouraged by the support I have received by those wishing to add their voices to this reclamation of our values.”


“Our country is now in desperate need of a new political movement which promises to make our future a shared endeavour, not a divisive one.”


Ironically, in a not so cryptic reference to Inspector Morse, Fox – whose website ironically links to a reputation management and crisis issues firm, Reputation Communications, whose clients also number the Equality and Human Rights Commission – ends by repeating: “This is now my endeavour.”


Frankly, here is a man whom speaks nothing but utter gibberish and someone whose party sounds quite beyond pointless. Whilst Laurence Fox’s political movement will undoubtedly fast fade into obscurity, those hideous inkings sadly are with him for life. The poor chap needs only to find himself a ‘safe’ space and he needs ‘freedom’ to about his stupidity. Next!

Moron of the Moment – Laurence Fox starts Reclaim political party – Laurence Fox has morphed from a much loved tellybox treasure into a tedious twerp; his new political party deserves only ‘destination dustbin’
Moron of the Moment – Laurence Fox has transformed from housewives favourite to far-right fruit loop very rapidly during 2020.

Fox’s ex-wife Billie Piper has previously contradicted his political views and previously made her thoughts clear about Boris Johnson’s Conservatives party by sporting a mock Tesco style T-shirt that stated: “Tories – Very little help.”
Fox’s downward spiral began after he appeared on BBC’s ‘Question Time’ in March this year. Initially, whilst many suggested he was quite right, he subsequently got rather carried away and lurched off into
Subsequently, this month Fox declared he’d been “shunned” by his own profession and demanded “the silent majority started to become a louder majority.” He declared intellectual activists “fragile children” and suggested the “establishment” have been “making children hyper-racially aware.”

  1. I think he’s quite fabulous. At some point people will realise that the majority of Britons feel this way and that they cannot speak out for fear of labelling by the liberal left and the media. What is so wrong with protecting one’s country, culture and community?

    • Total agreement Julie. As things stand he’d get my vote. There is no party currently that offers ANYTHING. The Conservatives under Boris have proved themselves to be bungling incompetents. The Labour Party are in total disarray, Lib Dems dont really know what they stand for, UKIP need a Leader who has charisma who can stay the course (unlike Farage). So why not Laurence Fox ? Speaks my language and stands for British values which are becoming more and more eroded.

    • You have NO IDEA what “the majority of Britons” think – it’s a lie oft-used by bigots to convince themselves that their tawdry opinions resonate beyond their own pathetic echo chambers.

    • Critical race theory, like all race theories is racist. Most normal British people understand this. The idea of systemic racism is so absurd it’s embarrassing. Just because Robin Di Angelo is racist doesn’t make everyone else racist. Hitler hated the Jews. Guess what, in this country they were safe even from ex labour Moseley and his ex labour black shirts. Fox understands the British and their tolerant ways better than most.

      • As an American, I can’t comment on “systemic racism” in the UK, but I can tell you that “systemic racism” is very real in the states. It’s not at all absurd.

  2. Precisely which part of his argument do you disagree with? I am tired of being called a racist. I’m not interested in how COVID unfairly affects women as a group. Neither do I care for Critical [insert latest cause] Theory, nor any opinion expressed by the BBC in the last 20 years. Lawrence Fox is on point.

  3. not a single argument in this whole article.

    I was interested in hearing an opposing view, but I honestly wonder if you can manage to site the right way round on a lavatory……..

    • You are right. This site dared suggest Max Clifford and Rolf Harris were guilty. Of course they would attack a good man like a Laurence Fox also therefore. Laurence would support these two men I know as he is someone who sees through the lefty women propaganda. Rolf Harris is innocent and he should be clearer now.

  4. If you think Fox “speaks gibberish” then you are out of touch with the majority of people in this country.
    Not a single rebuttal in your article. It’s nothing more than a long whinge because someone has a different opinion to you.

    • Fox’s party has the same tone as Tony Blair’s path to power. It’s utterly meaningless and that’s what this article shows… Fox, like Farage and Blair also, tells us what he thinks we want to hear but nothing else. No substance and that is highlighted clearly.

      “Reclamation of values” – What values?
      “Public institutions now work to an agenda beyond their main purpose” – And that is?
      “Custodians of our shared heritage” – What on earth does that mean?
      “A shared endeavour, not a divisive one” – Very Blair/Mandelson.

      You will regret what you wish for!

      • He is hardly wishing for anything radical or inflammatory, quite the opposite.

        “Reclamation of values” – What values?
        Free speech, the right to be able to say something like “all lives are precious” without having the cancel future twitter mob try and ruin your career.

        “Public institutions now work to an agenda beyond their main purpose” – And that is?
        In the case of institutions like the BBC, their main purpose is to inform the public of both sides of an argument and to be impartial.

        “Custodians of our shared heritage” – What on earth does that mean?
        To not try and re-write the history books, but to look at the good and bad in our history and move forward in an informed manner.

        “A shared endeavour, not a divisive one” – Very Blair/Mandelson.
        To stop making everything about divisive identity politics.
        If you think identity politics is the way forward, then you will indeed regret it.

    • I quite agree Terrance. This site attacks great people like Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Jimmy Savile and Rolf Harris and now dares criticise Laurence Fox – a gentle kind soul who simply called out the fake Black Life’s Matterers. Fake news. Fake news. Leave Laurence alone Sheeple People and accept Rolf Harris is innocent.

  5. Lawrence Fox should be commended for trying to stand up to the scourge of identity politics, hyper racial awareness, cancel culture etc.. from the mainstream media to Harry and Megan, we are constantly lectured to these days that the UK has systemic racism.
    This is fundamentally not true.
    The UK has a mayor of London in Sadiq Khan , Priti Patel is the Home Secretary, Rishi Sunak is the chancellor of the exchequer, Dianne Abbot, David Lammy, Sajid Javed and Dawn Butler all front bench MP’s. 18 muslim MP’s elected in the last election.
    Go to any other country in the world and try and find a more diverse and least racist society.. good luck with that.

    Yet we are constantly lectured to the contrary by the BBC, BLM, etc that we are all racist.. and even if we don’t think we are, then we are, unconsciously.
    For the author to call him a “moron” “pompous” and “talking gibberish”. Without exploring any of his arguments is shameful.
    Its a pity that this magazine is only online, it would be better served as toilet roll.

    • You sound like a truly tolerant and reasonable individual. No doubt “Rolf Harris is Innocent” will agree with your sentiments.

      Laurence Fox has morphed into a new version of David Icke. He gives no reasoning for what he says and his plattitudes are exactly akin to the strategy Tony Blair used in his third way – MEANINGLESS.

      • Excuse me, but where in my comment did I mention anything about Rolf Harris?? and how is Lawrence Fox in anyway similar to David Icke?

  6. The wording in the article above has clearly been put together by an IQ inferior, liberal, anti free speech aanti-UK, croissant sniffer – what a tw@t! Off you go little boy and live somewhere above where everybody else lives – in a cloud with a cuckoo!
    By the way, clearly Plastic Duck is missing an “F”!

  7. I would seriously advise you against dismissing Lawrence Fox as a David Icke type with no substance.

    You shouldn’t underestimate and dismiss what the majority of the UK (outside of London) thinks as being ill informed, bigoted and racist.

    A couple of years ago you were doing exactly the same thing against Nigel Farage, and then you all of a sudden last December, you found yourself voting for fucking Jo Swinson to overturn a national democratic vote!

    Wake the fuck up Steeples!


    • I did not vote for Jo Swinson and am not a member of the Liberal Democrats either.

      I do think Sir Ed Davey is a massive improvement and I much prefer Sir Keir Starmer to his predcessor also.

      Nigel Farage is indeed a bigot however and you plainly won’t like being told such.

      As for Laurence Fox, he’s just a milder version of the same and someone who’ll get nowhere due to his meaningless diatribe.

  8. Written by “The Fog”. Appropriately named if you ask me because these are the ramblings of someone who has absolutely no concept of rational thought or joined up thinking. I do hope that Fox succeeds in his endeavour so that this twerp has to eat his words. What a waste of good oxygen this writer clearly is! Get the avocados and the sandals out Mr Fog and get a life

  9. He doesn’t even have a manifesto just a couple of paragraphs, I understand things getting a bit politically correct is annoying at times but there’s a difference between the odd banter and straight up calling a gay person a peadofile based on their sexuality and ignoring oppression of a whole race luckily he’s too stupid to become dangerous.

  10. the trouble with Laurence is that, in his ignorance of the party system, he is simply adding another split and disuniting all those of similar views – Result. The BIG parties get back in again. Nothing changes.
    see “How Political Parties Corrupt Our Constitution” by

  11. Who wrote this bullsh*t article?!?! Full of their opinion and barely any facts! Completely ignorant to think that the UK public cannot form our own opinion so has to offer theirs. Journalism at its worst.
