In a more sensible country, Jacob Rees-Mogg would be a figure of pantomime fun. In Britain, he boasts the title of “minister of state”. So I guess this is another example of the government throwing pie in the faces of all of us.
The Moggster has decided to be a little more specific with his targeting of late, aiming pies topped with custard and the Eton mess he’s making – wait, can you top a pie with that? – at Britain’s financial watchdogs who reside at the Bank of England’s offices or at the FCA’s Stratford HQ.
He’s clearly trying to “put it about a bit” in his new role as “Brexit opportunities minister” or should that be “Brexit oxymorons minister”.
