The Man of the Match

The standard of debate in the chamber yesterday was excellent. It was driven by passion and belief and so no surprise there.
There were speeches of resignation, laden with bitter disappointment and speeches of anger and despair. But the best speech of all came from the most distinguished character in Parliament, Jacob Rees-Mogg.
Jacob may dress and sound like a throw back to the 1920's. You could mistake him for an extra from Wooster and Jeeve's, but you could not mistake his powerful reasoning, intellect or love of his country.
It has just occurred to me what a good leader he would make. He is such a character that maybe that's just what the British people may one day want, a character to delight in.
