Jacob Rees-Mogg is a British politician who has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for North East Somerset since 2010. He was appointed Secretary of State for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy by Liz Truss in September 2022 but resigned the following month when Rishi Sunak became Prime Minister.
A member of the hard right wing of the Conservative Party, he has been ideologically characterised as a High Tory and social conservative with reactionary, traditionalist, and right-wing populist views.
In October 2022, Business Minister Jacob Rees-Mogg was caught up in a cronyism row after his business partner and Somerset Capital Management co-founder Dominic Johnson was appointed a Minister in the Liz Truss' government.

|Johnson has been astute with the people he has gathered about him in the Cabinet. They are greedy and self-serving. They will never Level Up. They will continue to leech money from the NHS, underfund schools and keep hungry people queuing up outside food banks.

|So, the choice faced by ordinary British people is between a neoliberal EU supported by millionaires like Kenneth Clarke or an ultra-neoliberal Brexit supported by multimillionaires like Jacob Rees-Mogg. Meanwhile, ordinary working-class people pay the price for these elite games, as usual.
