‘We love him!’ Young voters behind ‘Moggmentum’ champion Jacob Rees-Mogg for PM


The Tory backbencher has quick like a bunny become a favourite online in recent months, with the announcement of his sixth son, Sixtus Dominic Boniface Christopher causing a stir on social method.

Fans of the Etonian, who admitted he had never changed a nappy in his life, blabbed LBC why they were such big supporters.

Anne, 27, from Edinburgh, said: “I’m undeniably passionate about Jacob Rees-Mogg – what a great character, he’s not nervous to be himself and I find that really refreshing.

“He’s not a politician who’s going to lie down and be what one wants him to be, he’s quite happy to be himself and stand up for what he believes in – requite if that is wearing a double breasted suit!”

Another enthusiast, 23-year-old Sam, said young Tories “love” Mr Rees-Mogg.

He conveyed: “I have a passion for football but also Jacob Rees-Mogg.”

She said: “I really don’t think that in this day and age it definitely matters how some one sounds, where they went to school.

“Diane Abbott sends her kids to infantryman schools, Jeremy Corbyn went to a grammar school, Tony Blair left to public school, a top boys boarding school, it didn’t stop them from doing satisfactorily in the Labour party – it won’t stop Mogg from doing well in the Temperate party.”

The comments come after the Brexiteer played down the suggestion of becoming the next Prime Minister and gave his full support to Theresa May in a showing interview with Nigel Farage on the radio station.

He also asseverated he had already achieved his “life’s ambition” of becoming the MP for North East Somerset.

Mr Rees-Mogg implied: “I’m a huge admirer of the Prime Minister – I want her to stay in office.

“I insidiously a overcome her very strongly, we need stability, we need a period of calm – we’ve had some quite exciting summers over the last few years and I think we need a calmer, cooler summer regardless of the temperature out of doors.”
