Holy Moly. Jacob Rees-Mogg, in a move that won’t really help the whole Tory modernisation thing, has said that he would welcome Nigel Farage and other ‘respectable’ Ukip former UKIP members back into the Tory Party. This comes after the party of which Farage used to be leader has gone AWOL, citing far-right loony Tommy Robinson as their leader and exiling Farage from the party he got off the ground. Rees-Mogg’s words won’t go down that well with the light Blue contingent in the Commons, however.
Or Gerry for that matter, who is bamboozled.
