Jacob Rees-Mogg has resigned as Business Secretary just in time to get some serious gaming in.

The Quentin Blake illustration made clear that he would be a willing part of Rishi Sunak’s cabinet, but resigned when it became clear that Sunak would rather Rees-Mogg be a willing part of the unemployment figures.

“Still, just in time for Victoria 3,” smiled Rees-Mogg.

“I’ve got a pretty hefty gaming rig at home with an RTX 3080, which is more than that game requires, but it’s going to look banging on my 1440p monitors anyway.

“Victoria 3 is a game where you basically build Victorian England, set rules for land ownership, set tax levies, and tell peasants what to do. It’s my version of pornography, and I’m delighted to have very little to do just in time for its release.”

Simon Williams, one of the developers for Victoria 3, said, “We are very proud of this game, but absolutely mortified to learn that it’s made Jacob Rees-Mogg happy.”
