JACOB Rees-Mogg has been tipped as a future Tory leader and possible PM. The MP for North East Somerset caused controversy after airing his views on abortion and gay marriage. Then, on August 2018 his Somerset home was vandalised. Here's his story... Who is Jacob Rees-Mogg? Jacob Rees-Mogg is a backbench Tory MP for North East Somerset but is better known for his period drama persona which has been winning him fans. He entered parliament during the 2010 General Election after working as a fund manager in London. During the EU referendum, he was a passionate Brexiteer and made many high-profile media appearances arguing for a vote to leave the EU. To say he was born into a privileged position is an understatement - he is the Eton and Oxford-educated son of the long-serving Times editor William Rees-Mogg. During the 1997 General Election Rees-Mogg attracted ridicule. This is because he brought his faithful nanny along with him as he battled to be elected in the working class and … [Read more...] about Who is Jacob Rees-Mogg, who is his wife and how many children does the Brexiteer have?

THERESA May can get a “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” trade deal with the EU - but only if she toughens up her negotiating approach, leading Brexiteers warned yesterday. Turning the screw on the PM, David Davis and Jacob Rees-Mogg endorsed a rival blueprint for a “clean break” from Brussels. This would allow Britain to prioritise its focus on securing major new free trade deals with the likes of the US that voters were promised in the referendum, they said. And the Brexiteers stepped up their attack on Mrs May for making Britain a “supplicant” to the EU in Brexit talks with her current Chequers plan, which they said would make a US free trade deal all-but impossible. Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell says Labour's second Brexit referendum wouldn't include an option to remain in the EU The Tory MPs spoke alongside ex-Northern Ireland Secretary and ex-Labour MP and Leave campaigner Gisela Stuart to announce the launch of an alternative Brexit plan … [Read more...] about Brexiteers including Jacob Rees-Mogg claim their new proposal is SupercalifragilisticBREXpialidocious
Theresa May has been urged to grasp a "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" Canada style trade deal with the European Union by leading Tory Brexiteers. The call came from Jacob Rees-Mogg at the launch event for a new Brexit blueprint by the free market Institute of Economic Affairs think tank (IEA). The charity is calling on ministers to seek a "basic" free trade agreement for goods and pursue "regulatory freedom and trade independence". Mr Rees-Mogg, who leads the powerful Tory backbench European Research Group (ERG), said: "So much of what hear about these negotiations has been about managing decline, has been about how you have the least bad Brexit, this is about how you can have a fantastic Brexit that sets us up for the next generation and ensures our prosperity. "This has been offered to us by the Commission, they have offered us the best trade deal they have ever done with any country ever in the world, so if you want to call it Canada plus, or super Canada or … [Read more...] about Jacob Rees-Mogg calls for ‘supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ Brexit deal
Leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has called on businesses to stop living in "Cloud Cuckoo Land" and accept Brexit will mean changes to how they operate. The Conservative MP was backed up former Brexit Secretary David Davis, who claimed top firms such as BMW should be able to cope with extra hours delays at customs. The comments were made at the launch of a detailed report by the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) setting out an alternative negotiating strategy to the Government's ill-fated Chequers proposal. The IEA's vision would see the UK strike a free trade deal with the EU, as opposed to Britain signing up to Brussels' rulebook on goods.

The North East Somerset MP said: "Six seconds of delay in goods coming in via Southampton, well, you get longer delays … [Read more...] about Jacob Rees-Mogg tells businesses to stop living in ‘Cloud Cuckoo Land’ over Brexit
THERESA May is gathering her Cabinet for crunch Brexit talks this afternoon – as Jacob Rees-Mogg and top Brexiteers reveal their own plan for our EU exit. The Prime Minister is addressing her ministers in Downing Street for the first time since her Chequers plan was mauled by EU leaders in Salzburg last week. But it will come just hours after the high-profile launch of an alternative blueprint by a free market institute, backed by Boris Johnson and David Davis. Called “Plan A+”, the report by the Institute of Economic Affairs urges Mrs May to open trade talks with the US to try and break the deadlock with Brussels. The major intervention, just days before the Tory conference, piles the pressure on the PM to opt for a looser arrangement with the EU like Canada currently enjoys. And the Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab broke ranks and risked infuriating No10 by suggesting he was “always listening to new proposals and new ideas” ahead of its … [Read more...] about Theresa May gathers Cabinet for crunch Brexit talks – as Jacob Rees-Mogg and top Brexiteers reveal their own plan for our EU exit
