Jacob Rees-Mogg's sister to stand for Nigel Farage's Brexit Party
The sister of Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg is to stand as a candidate for Nigel Farage's new Brexit Party in the forthcoming European elections.

Annunziata Rees-Mogg was introduced by the former Ukip leader at the party's campaign launch at a factory in Coventry.

Addressing cheering supporters, Ms Rees-Mogg said it was not a decision she had taken lightly after years loyally supporting the Tories.

"I joined the Conservative Party in 1984 and this is not a decision I have made lightly -- to leave a party for which I have fought at every election since 1987, from Maggie Thatcher through to Theresa May.

"I know which one I'd rather have representing us now."

She added: "The point at which our prime minister will not listen, not only to her membership, but will not listen to the people of her country... I can't sit by and let her do it.

"We've got to rescue our democracy, we have got to show that the people of this country have a say in how we are run.

"That the politicians are not our masters -- they are to do our bidding."

Annunziata Rees-Mogg : Voice of the people.

As for Thatcher, I loath the ground she walked on, but she'd never have had any truck with referenda and would have destroyed the juvenile pretentions of the Leavers with a single basilisk stare. Neither the Mail nor the Telegraph would have dared raise a peep in her earshot.
