Jacob Rees-Mogg criticised Keir Starmer, the leader of the Labour Party, by claiming that Penny Mordaunt’s endorsement of her former competitor Liz Truss was done to “keep the socialists out.”
British Opportunities Secretary Jacob Rees-Mogg said Conservative members would always band together to “keep the socialists out” of 10, Downing Street, which is a shot across the bow for Sir Keir Starmer.
The most recent demonstration of Conservative unity, according to Minister Rees-Mogg, is Penny Mordaunt’s support for Liz Truss, a former opponent who is now the front-runner for the party’s leadership.
When questioned about Penny Mordaunt’s surprise decision to support her former opponent Liz Truss, Mr Rees-Mogg said to GB News: “I think that tells you something about the Conservative Party. We are ultimately all on the same side.”
“We won an election, and we want to keep the socialists out because we think they have been ruinous for the country.”
“And whoever wins, in the end, will have loyal support from Conservative members up and down the country.”
“And Penny has shown that and shown that to my mind with considerable grace.”
