The European Research Group (ERG) Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg explained that the Tory party needed to put no deal back on the table to successfully implement Brexit. He emphasised the importance of the Conservative party being the Brexit option people support despite the failures of the last few years. Julia Hartley-Brewer of TalkRadio asked the ERG leader to first consider the worst case scenario in the upcoming European election before explaining his Brexit plan.
She said: “Let us say that the polls are right and 34 percent or possibly more than that vote for the Brexit Party.
“The Tories currently on nine percent, in single digits, what happens then, how will a big Brexit vote affect what happens with the Conservative party and leadership elections?”
Mr Rees-Mogg replied: “Well, I think one thing will be very clear from it that was indicated by the local elections and that is people don’t want politics as normal
