Reader’s comment: Rees-Mogg at the crossroads


In response to Laura Perrins: Better late than never – Mogg gets there on Brexit, Mojo wrote:

JRM is going to have to look at where his true loyalties lie. With the country or with a Conservative party moving more and more out of step with the country. He walks a fine line of loyalty to both. However, on the Conservative Home site today, I notice that there are very many Conservatives who do not think he will be leadership material because of his views on abortion etc. They are also discussing that he is highly decisive and ‘too posh’.

This guy is a true blue Tory. There are very many members and voters who actually agree with his views as opposed to the metropolitan babble. However, it is telling that the Conservatives don’t really like him and will probably block any rise to Cabinet level. Mrs May has certainly blocked the very bright and able young Brexiteers so far.

I think there must come a time very soon when JRM will need to make his choice. He either buckles down to a socialist conservative party (I know these words contradict each other), or he needs to stand by his conservative views and consign himself to the back benches like Peter Bone etc, effectively stopping his career in its tracks because support will fall away.
