[100 word news] – Jacob Rees-Mogg rules out leadership bid: ‘I’m a backbench Tory MP, and can’t be a serious candidate’

Jacob Rees-Mogg has ruled out a bid for the Conservative leadership, saying:

‘I don’t think it’s wise to have ambitions above one’s station’.

‘I’m a backbench Tory MP, and can’t be a serious candidate’.

‘And I’m glad to say there isn’t a vacancy’.

‘We’ve all got in a terrible flap over the general election, and it’s quite unnecessary’.

‘It wasn’t as good as we’d hoped, but the Conservative Party is still the party of government. The Prime Minister is still the Prime Minister’.

‘It’s not a catastrophe. Nobody’s died. We’re all still alive. I think a calmer evaluation of the election result is necessary’.

‘I think the summer is the opportunity for people to think it through, and to realise that all parties need to be led’.

‘There is no obvious candidate to take over from Theresa May’.
