Tory MP Daniel Kawczynski, who represents the Shrewsbury and Atcham constituency in the House of Commons, said on Friday that fellow Conservative Party MP Jacob Rees-Mogg should replace Theresa May as the Prime Minister of the UK.
He proceeded to say that Mogg is best-suited to lead the UK post-Brexit, and insisted he can “take the fight to the Labour Party,” which performed significantly better than the Tories in England’s local council elections earlier this month.
“It is essential that, once the Brexit process has been completed, the Conservative Party must be led with someone who has a clear, concise view of what a post Brexit Britain should look like, has the support of both MPs and party members and has the skills necessary to take the fight to the Labour Party,” Kawczynski’s article reads.
He went on to claim that “no other politician has the grassroots support that he does”, and continued to praise Mogg throughout the rest of his article.
Jacob Rees-Mogg was perhaps the most vocal critical of May’s customs union proposal, slamming it as “cretinous” and casted doubt over the PM’s commitment to withdrawing the UK from the EU.
