As the search begins for a new Conservative party chairman, Jacob Rees-Mogg has suggested the Tories should replace Nadhim Zahawi – a man fined by HMRC – with Boris Johnson – a man fined by the police.
As names begin to circulate with regard to the new chairman of the party, Jacob Rees-Mogg believes that Boris Johnson is perfectly suited to the role.
He told reporters, “He has all the necessary skills and experience to lead the party towards the next general election.
“Nadhim, a colleague I value very highly, simply had to go after his fine from HMRC – not because of any rule-breaking on his part, but because he didn’t think big enough.
“Boris has a clear track record of breaking rules that involve law enforcement, and that’s the sort of radical free-thinking we need at the top of his party.
“Do you think we are going to win the next election by sticking to the rules? Are you insane? We need the steady hand of a man who thinks the rules are for the little people – and that man is Boris Johnson.”
