Senior Tory BLASTS Mogg Leadership Prospects: “I Don’t Think That Would Work”

Reece Coombes

As a 16-year-old member of UKIP with a cardboard Nigel Farage cut-out in his bedroom, Reece is hardly your bog-standard student, but he cherishes his independent thinking as his greatest strength. Reece is the founder and owner of Kipper Central, a UKIP community blog with thousands of daily hits and is also the Deputy Chairman of Young Independence, UKIP's youth wing, where he works hard to promote Brexit and radical thinking to young people across Britain.

    Graham Brady is yet another senior Tory in a long line who wishes to protect the status quo, never admitting that we as Britons have a positive future outside of the European Union. These people are relics, treasonous and poisonous to our system, they need to be expelled from government.

    Thanks Reece for a thought provoking article. As someone of lowly origins I can understand Jacob very easily, so the mention of his 18th century spoken English is rather churlish. Mind you the Tories know how to stab each other in the back better than most.
    I have heard JRM speak on many occasions and I follow him on “ where his interventions in parliamentary debates are published. He is inspiring and erudite whilst being easy to understand so what is to dislike other than a few in the Tory party that fear his rise to fame.
    Of course they may despise him over his staunch support of Brexit which as we know still tears the Tories apart. As a former member of the Tory party, a solid supporter of Brexit, a member of the Bruges Group and previous parliamentary candidate for UKIP you can see the attraction.
    Jacob’s chance may not come this year but it will certainly be a possibility in the near future. Never say never in politics.

    This will not go down well with Brexiteers, who see Jacob Rees Mogg as the only person who has the intelligence and the honesty in the Conservative party not only to be a Leader but to deliver the Brexit that 17.4million people voted for on 23rd June 2016. It does though explain May’s continued and spiteful dismissal of JRM even for a ministerial post. This shows just what sort of woman and Leader she is and what sort of party she leads, yes she was right it is the Nasty party.

    • Brenda Rattle says:

      I’m another Rees Mogg fan and concur with you. I do, though, hope you are using the word ‘leader’ somewhat loosely where T May is concerned because, from where I’m standing, the only place she’s leading us is up the garden path!


  4. StuartJ says:

    In much the same way that the other leadership candidates conveniently ‘stepped aside’ leaving Theresa May as Prime Minister last time around?
    All the Establishment parties are the same; it’s not about getting the ‘best person’ for the job, but who will be the most useful lackey/puppet.

  5. Ann Elvin says:

    Jacob Reese mogg, is the only Tory member that I would vote for, he cares about Britain’s future, If traitor may can do it, he can, we will never vote Torys again, that is all who voted leave. Only JRM, or ukip.

  6. Graham Brady, Out of touch, Out of time, Out of idea’s. Terrified of the popular choice who is his own man not a puppet to have his strings pulled, Get out of the kitchen you obviously can’t stand the heat!

    So what is wrong with 18th. century English ? We are not going back to ancient English, just plain understandable English, that may be a little uncommon today, but perfect for one who speaks his mind.
    Moggy has little chance of being elected leader and therefore PM, due to the fact that rank and file Tory MPs are stupid, but for a fact, they are all wishing to retain their seats, and Moggy leading them, is their best chance !
    Just think of it, a PM that is in tune with the will of the people. Good grief, whatever next ?

  8. Kay says:

    A very jealous statement from a very jelous wanabe pm, Jacob Rees Mogg is more than qualified, for the prime minister job.

  9. mike osborne says:

    He is the only one could with the right backing, turn this Country around . He has been around for decades and knows the Eu very well and how it works. Their isn’t another man or women i would like to see as the new leader of the once great Uk, its not anymore, May is to weak to stand up to the job. So hurry up and sign up Mogg.

    I believe that Graham Brady is the one totally out of touch with what the country thinks. Teresa May certainly has not connected with the whole of the country, and you name me a previous prime minister, certainly in more recent years who has? You can’t, because there hasn’t been one. What JRM says really resonates with me, and thousands of other people in this country, because even though he comes from a privileged background, he is honest and will be the first one to tell you this, his feet are firmly on the ground and he has a heart. I love his style of speaking.When May speaks, for me , her words are empty, they are just words and come from her head, not her heart. I just don’t believe that she is sincere in meaning what she says.

  11. David Dubery says:

    Graham Brady is the epitome of the pompous, snout-in-the-trough, establishment elite that continues to wield power at the heart of the Conservative Party, an elite that is completely and utterly out of touch with public opinion and whose views will lead to a landslide Labour victory at the next General Election as Brexiteers flock back to UKIP or, perhaps, a new party led by Nigel Farage that will genuinely look to sever all links with the Evil Union.

  12. Ryan says:

    How wrong are you Graham Brady
    It it because he is honest principled.
    Not dishonest and wont bend to corrupt MPs and money grabbers who only wish to kine their own pockets and their cronies

  13. Brian Baxter says:

    Yes he is grass roots to the public and in my eyes could do no worse than the present Prime Minster, whom I may add was one for remaining in the EU. I do not think she has taken her responsibilities serious enough to warrant trust from the Voter’s who wish to leave.

  14. linda says:

    Jacob Rees Mogg is an English gentleman through and through he has a vast knowledge of what the British people want,
    he is a very intelligent smart he will take this country and put it back to its glory it once was, i hope the people vote him in power
    so we can rid ourselves of the imbeciles who has and still are tearing our country to pieces and its British people into extinction,
    we all need to stand up and rid ourselves of this incompetent Government

    Another bowl of ‘Sour Grapes’, from the Tory Grandees!
    Of course Graham Brady, soon to be ‘Sir’, Graham has already received his ’30 Pieces of Silver’, to make sure thatTheresa the Appeaser, is not ‘Deposed’, any time soon.
    This really annoys me, that these unelected, usually faceless mandarins, hold such power over this very important facet of Government!
    The Electorate should have some say, in the choosing of a Party Leader, not just being the ‘Favourite’, of a selection panel, such as the 1922 Committee, which the Public, know little about, seems very secretive to me.
    A widely respected , capable and popular leader would seem, the obvious answer, and Jacob Rees Mogg, fits the bill on both counts.
    TheresaMay, has none of these attributes, She is a Political survivor, best remembered, for ‘Sitting on the Fence’, over many issues. She has been an abject disappointment during the Brexit talks, failed to effect a meaningful reshuffle of her Cabinet, leaving Hammond and Rudd to cause problems, and now giving 44 million of Taxpayers money for a French problem, and allowing more migrants to enter Britain, under the guise of children, even after the scandal over their ages last time.
    I do not know, if She is Stupid, or just Inept, but her performance thus far, is dire, I, for one, am deeply unhappy at her continued, quest to please everyone, EXEPT THE ELECTORATE! 😡

    JACOB REES-MOGG: A most unusual Gentleman. A man that many would consider is a stuck-up snob, until you listen to him, and then make your mind up ! He is indeed unusual, in speech, in manner, and in the ways of truth. ( This last descriptive makes him very much unique in The House of Commons !).
    He is of course liked by all of us in UKIP, due to being of the belief in Great Britain, and our Nation being free from the EU. However, he goes further than just our grouping. If you take the most rabid members on the left of politics, they don’t dislike him. They won’t vote for him, but unlike the present PM, they don’t hate him !
    His political credentials are unambiguous, he is a totally died in the wool Conservative. It is on that point, that Tory MPs should ponder, when they get around to making correction to the total Jonah that they have been lumbered with. I would certainly not want to miss PMQs with Moggy at the dispatch box. The end of the bear pit confrontations !?!
    The 1922 committee can sometimes get above itself, and Graham Brady appears to have done just that. The election of Moggy to head the Tory Party, and therefore before a General Election, become Prime Minister, is not such a bad idea when seen through the eyes of a Tory MP. If I judge correctly, should an election be called now, there is just a chance that we could end up with a Labour Government, due to Maggie May not being liked, or causing frustration to the voters. Moggy may well clear the EU problem, and save many a Tory seat !

    What qualifications does one need to be a PM? If treason is top of the list then May is eminently qualified!
