‘Jacob Rees-Mogg is an unfailing, unbending, unrelenting reactionary’, says Matthew Parris

Times columnist and former Tory MP Matthew Parris has hit out at Jacob Rees-Mogg, saying:

‘For the 21st-century Conservative Party, Jacob Rees-Mogg would be pure hemlock’.

‘His manners are perfumed but his opinions are poison. Rees-Mogg is quite simply an unfailing, unbending, unrelenting reactionary’.

‘His record on every moral, social, sexual or reproductive issue I’ve looked at is brute moral conservatism. He has been a straight-down-the-line supporter of every welfare cut I’ve checked’.

‘Examining his stances and his reasoning, one sees the intellectual nimbleness of a top QC and the opinions of a Colonel Blimp. On Europe, his instincts would take Britain crashing out with no deal at all’.

  2. Not been so impressed with the integrity of a politician for many many years. No wonder the elite hierarchy are terrified of him. There would be nobody able to debate with JRM. He simply would not allow constant interruptions and thereafter, clearly and logically present the case in the most eloquent of manners.

    Why do some people find it so easy to fall for a man, easily exposed as a privileged nobody, who likes to seem intelligent by tweeting in a dead language?
