JACOB Rees-Mogg was greeted by a passionate supporter claiming he would like the Tory Brexiteer to be his Prime Minister during a BBC Newsnight interview.
The excited Brexiteer's fan told Jacob Rees-Mogg he considers him to be the UK Prime Minister while the Tory MP told BBC Newsnight it would be a miracle if he changed his mind on Theresa May's Brexit deal. The Tory backbencher was asked whether "the finest bottle of wine in Nuber 10" would convince him to vote in favour of the Prime Minister's deal on Tuesday, but he claimed that would be quite the miraculous event.
He said: “Even if it is wine as the wedding feast of Cana, it will not be changing my mind.
The comment came moments before Mr Rees-Mogg joined a drinks reception in Number 10 organised by the Prime Minister for Brexiteers of her party following the second parliamentary defeat in less than 24 hours.
Mrs May suffered her first humiliating defeat on Tuesday at the hands of the House of Commons after MPs voted to restrict the Government’s tax powers in an effort to reduce the possibility of a no-deal Brexit.
