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’.
