Jacob Rees-Mogg is out of the government. Good!

Almost before Rishi Sunak could consider himself prime minister, the Cabinet resignations began – with some of the quitters leaving ahead of the boot, one suspects.

First among these was former Business Secretary Jacob Rees-Mogg, who had described Sunak as a “socialist” during the summer, when he refused to commit himself to the kind of tax cuts proposed by his then-leadership rival (subsequently prime minister) Liz Truss.

And now we have seen the result of Truss’s former Chancellor, Kwasi Kwarteng, merely announcing those tax cuts: an economic disaster.

In his resignation letter, Rees-Mogg backtracked on his “socialist” comment and said he would do all he could to support Sunak from the back benches.

Here’s a news clip:

I’ll try to produce an article on Rees-Mogg’s career, just to remind us all of the kind of man he is.

The fact that such a leading figure in the European Research Group (ERG) – the arch-Brexiter wing of the Conservative Party – is out should not give any of us cause for comfort; the government is still riddled with these politically and economically illiterate headbangers.
