Brexit Party MEP Annunziata Rees-Mogg has contradicted party leader Nigel Farage by saying that Boris Johnson’s new Brexit proposals should be “[given] a chance.”
Speaking on talkRADIO earlier today, Rees-Mogg (sister of Jacob, who’s in Johnson’s Cabinet), said: “There’s a lot still to come out about this and I think we’ve got to give it a chance to be analysed properly and see what it actually would mean in practice.”
This statement contrasts starkly with Farage, who said yesterday that Johnson’s deal was like “putting your head in a crocodile’s mouth and hoping for the best.”
Farage has also written a column for The Telegraph today, saying Johnson is “trying to put lipstick on a pig,” by renegotiating Theresa May’s deal.
Rees-Mogg has previously hinted that she could (re)join the Conservative Party, if Johnson delivers Brexit. Maybe she’s thinking of switching sides sooner than we all expected.
