Jacob Rees-Mogg argues the case for Brexit.
This week’s JS Mill Society (Thursday 5 May) convened to listen to the eloquent Conservative backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg and his case for Brexit.
Coming from a rural Somerset constituency, Rees-Mogg saw various disadvantages to the EU such as regulation of agricultural pesticides and subsequent intrusion on our political sovereignty. Moreover he attacked the ‘Remain’ campaign for having such little enthusiasm for the European project, but avoided the topic of budget contributions - one of the main areas the leave campaign are using to convince the public.
