Election fun with Jacob Rees-Mogg
In my North East Somerset constituency, where our excellent three term Labour MP Dan Norris is defending a majority truncated by boundary changes to around 150, we are blessed in the Tory candidate, the extraordinary Jacob Rees-Mogg. Last week, the Sunday Times devoted nearly a whole page to an attempt by Camille Long to track the elusive candidate down. Now Mogg has shown his brilliance in campaigning by starting a row in the Bath Chronicle about a quite funny spoof website that a local university student has set up. Instead of ignoring this bit of fun, the son of Lord Rees-Mogg has cleverly decided that the site should have loads of publicity, so he has threatened legal action. See the site here.
