Facts4EU and CIBUK present the former BEIS Minister’s thoughts on important subjects

Relatively few politicians down the years have become instantly recognisable by their first name. Those who spring to mind include ‘Winston’, ‘Maggie’, ‘Ronnie’, and ‘Boris’. To this illustrious list we must add ‘Jacob’.

Facts4EU and CIBUK were therefore particularly pleased to interview the Rt Hon Jacob Rees-Mogg MP at the end of last year, in the library of his North SSomerset home via Zoom. For readers who missed it, the full interview can be accessed on YouTube here. Alternatively readers can read the highlights from the transcript here.

For those who do not have the time to watch a half-hour interview, however, we have now collated five moments on some key topics. We are presenting these five “Jacob in shorts” below. He spoke to us exclusively on a range of topics and we have packaged these into ‘bite-sized chunks’ of five 60-second videos and are grateful to Mr Rees-Mogg for his assistance in helping us to get these important messages out there.

We would like to thank the former Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Rt Hon Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, for giving up his time for this interview. When he was a member of the government he had to stand by Cabinet collective responsibility. Now he is a little freer to speak out, although of course he remains supportive of the Government's policies overall.

Always a eurosceptic and a Leave supporter, Jacob is "on side", even if some wish he would be tougher on the EU and on the Government's trajectory on the completion of a full Brexit.

We are grateful to Mr Rees-Mogg for his support in 2022, and look forward to working with him in 2023 in the cause of a fully-sovereign, fully-independent and fully-free United Kingdom.
