IN response to Laura Perrins: I’m praying that Jacob Rees-Mogg sees the light on lockdown, springmellon wrote:
I too had hopes for Rees-Mogg. He has, unfortunately, one great fault: when it comes down to choosing between the good of the country or the good of the Tory Party his greater loyalty is to the preservation of the Tory Party.
He will say perfectly sound things on national sovereignty, individual freedom, responsible public spending and about making difficult choices and sacrifices when deciding where to allocate taxpayers’ money. However, as soon as the interests of the Tory Party conflict with those principles they are swiftly relegated to second place.
