Rees-Mogg: This Is Not A Coup

Speaking outside Parliament following the ERG meeting where it was decided that letters should be sent in, Rees-Mogg clarified:

“A coup is when you use illegitimate procedures to try to overturn someone in office. This is working through the procedures of the Conservative Party.”

Speaking to a huge media scrum, Mogg said that there are “many many people” who could replace Theresa May. “You’ve got Boris Johnson and David Davis, you’ve got Dominic Raab and Esther McVey, you have Penny Mordaunt, you have streams of talent within the Conservative Party who would be very capable of leading a proper Brexit”

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
