Jacob Rees-Mogg is the best MP in the House of Commons. He is a dedicated and honest man of principle. He would of been a perfect choice for any cabinet post. Theresa May not including him in the cabinet is a disgrace and if she does not give him the promotion he deserves she has no right to be leader of the Conservative party or Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

Theresa May, get your act together and give Jacob Rees-Mogg a role in the cabinet, or at the very least a Minister in the Department of Exiting the European Union.

Jacob Rees-Mogg is the greatest of the great and a real man's man.

In the cabinet his hands get tied, he does a greater service to the nation from the back benches.

Where is the evidence for this greatness, dedication and honesty of Jacob Rees-Mogg? Because unless you know him personally, as a friend, for many many years, you can't really judge how he behaves behind closed doors.

Yes, he is well spoken and a highly intelligent person, but he may not be a leader. The political parties have been failing for years to appoint the right people to the Cabinet. What I mean is: don't appoint those educated in history to run our economy or those without any medical experience to manage our health state.

I do give credit to Mr. Rees-Mogg for being a great MP, there's no doubt that he's something of a unicorn. I would see him as a future Speaker of the HoC.

I would also like to relate to your comment to PM May. As you can see from her appointments, many of them were tactical rather than based on merit.

Some good points well made. To me he symbolises everything bad about the Tories. He is a pompous, intellectually outspoken product of the elitist Etonian / Oxbridge world and about as disconnected from the real world as it is possible to get. The very definition of power to the privileged.

He supported Boris, then Gove, then Leadsom in the Tory leadership race. It's not very likely that Theresa May would put him in her cabinet when he supported someone else at every stage.

Then he should be the leader of the cabinet, deciding Government policy. Mogg for PM.

She could at least make him a minister of State, he would do well in the Brexit Department or perhaps Minister for Immigration or something like that.

He would make a brilliant Secretary of Education for England imo, wish we had him fixing the toxic SNP education system in Scotland.

Someone's jealous. Just because he was well raised and from a family that is qualified to have children doesn't mean he should be banned from Government.

Theresa should appoint him as her advisor, she would learn a thing or two from him. If Mogg isn't giving his vote for you then you're doing something wrong.

It's Britain, everyone here has silly names as far as I'm concerned.

I would love him as SoS for Scotland even though he's well above that role.

He's a man or principle and prestige. We need more men like him, not fat, baldy taxi driving rapists that everyone in the UK is these days.

Why should I be jealous of someone born with a silver spoon in their mouth. I am a firm believer in meritocracy. Should should I be jealous of someone whose position in society was inherited rather than earned?

I'm slightly surprised that he is not but it doesn't help that he is a mere shadow of his father or that his semi-frequent rants against the elite show a complete lack of self-awareness.

So him going to oxbridge which is on his own merit and being an incredibly talented financier is not meritocratic? Ok makes sense...

He's disconnected from your world, but that's not the same thing as being disconnected from the real world. His world is no less real than yours, simply different.

I don't think I've ever heard of something more Tory than saying that wealth 'qualifies' you to have children. Also, the fat, baldy, taxi drivers you talk about make up a higher proportion of the population than Oxbridge educated Etonians. I find it hilarious you call Rees-Mogg 'for the people', and go on to make classist, disgusting remarks about the people.

Prestige is hardly the most important trait of a good politician but, based on the things you've said, I doubt we have anything in common when it comes to differentiating the good politicians from the bad.

He's said before he isn't interested in such a role as it'd diminish his role as an MP and would be conflicted in representing his constituency.

He's probably got numerous assets and business links that could conflict with his position in government.

What I like about him is how he portrays the typical out of touch man but when you listen to what he's saying, he gets it. He listens to people and absorbs what they say, that is a irreplaceable quality.

I know what he is and I don't think he runs it anymore. I also highly doubt that he's "incredibly talented" but I defer to your knowledge of the industry.

I think he is still the chairman, but in a more advisory role now due to the the conflict of interests with his roles as an MP.

However well connected you are, it takes considerable skill to establish an investment company from scratch especially with the asset accumulation rate that his company has had.

In other words, whether you agree with his politics or not, he knows his :dolphin::dolphin::dolphin::dolphin: and can put forward cogent arguments for his position, which not many politicians can/do nowadays....
