Jacob Rees-Mogg has laid bare the extreme views that lie beneath his whimsical appearance for all to see.
The darling of the Tory grassroots told ITV’s Good Morning Britain of his opposition to equal marriage and abortion – even in cases of rape or incest.
It comes just a day after the old-Etonian millionaire was found to be the favourite to succeed Theresa May as Tory leader among party members.
Rees-Mogg has been tipped for a ministerial job and is just 8/1 to become the next Prime Minister.
Thankfully the following minute of TV should be enough to kill of any hopes he and his supporters have of high office:
‘Life is sacrosanct and begins at the point of conception and I think it is wrong’ – Jacob Rees-Mogg

Looks like the Moggmentum’s run out…
