According to the Evening Standard, Jacob Rees Mogg has generated controversy through some of his “more extreme views”. The commentator Suzanne Moore compared Jacob Rees Mogg to Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage, and Donald Trump, noting that like them “he embodies the three things that many people require of modern politicians: a veneer of authenticity; an ability to cut through perceived liberal wisdom; and enormous privilege that is flaunted, rather than hidden.” Moore was of the view that he uses his “religious faith” in an attempt to “excuse his appalling bigotry”.

Jacob Rees Mogg has at various times both described himself as a “man of the people” and rejected that description, saying “The ‘man of the people’ act is the height of condescension.”

But Jacob Rees Mogg likened it to a “dictatorship”.

“We could just ignore all democracy and install a dictatorship but it would be a really shocking approach to take when 17.4 million voted to Leave.

“When I said dictatorship, it would be an overthrowing of that vote in June 2016, when we decided to leave. The government were suddenly to say ‘we’re revoking Article 50,’ it would be a real scandal.”

Referring to a People’s Vote, Jacob Rees Mogg continued: “It would be ignoring the biggest democratic exercise this country ever had which was then reinforced by the general election – in which both the Labour Party and the Conservative party committed to implementing the result of the referendum.

“Can politicians just say anything and do the reverse? Can they pile lies upon lies?”

In a clip widely-shared Rees-Mogg made the case for two votes during a 2011 Commons debate on an EU referendum.

Jacob Rees Mogg argued: “It might make more sense to have the second referendum after the renegotiation is completed.”
