Jacob Rees-Mogg quotes

Oct 02 2017

Well, we may disagree on things, but just because you disagree with somebody, that doesn't make them a bad person. The two are separate.feedback

Sep 29 2017

I think that conservative principles have a broad appeal and you should state them boldly, and the point of a Conservative election is to do conservative things, not to do Labour things but slightly less damaging.feedback

Sep 29 2017

I have tended just to plod along, really, and do what I've done. There is no grand design.feedback

Sep 14 2017 - Brexit

I think that is a great sadness because life begins at the point of conception.feedback

Sep 14 2017 - World Happiness report

I was delighted to bring some happiness and joy to our distinguished prime minister, but that's how seriously she takes it.feedback

Sep 14 2017

And the former Labour government would not tell them – and that was a policy decision to stop people knowing that there was help available.feedback

Sep 14 2017

I have no wish to become leader of the Conservative party. I'm fully supporting Mrs May. I am completely backing Mrs May and no one serious thinks that I am a credible candidate.feedback

Sep 09 2017 - Homosexuality

It's a very difficult question and one I can't answer. I don't know. But I think life is so important that even if the creation of it has taken place in difficult circumstances, that life should not be removed. Similarly, it's very difficult for families to bring up disabled children and one of the tragedies of abortion is that a disabled child who is as full a person as an able child is aborted routinely. And doesn't that lessen society's view of people with disabilities? And isn't it a great sadness?feedback

Sep 09 2017 - Homosexuality

I've never been invited to a gay wedding before, but I can't see why I'd decline. It's not for me to enforce my morals on others. If someone asked me to a drugs rave I'd refuse because it's illegal. The Catholic Church's teachings are authoritative. There is a moral absolute on abortion – that it is wrong. To take a life after a rape is not the answer. Life begins at the point of conception.feedback

Sep 09 2017 - Homosexuality

One can only feel compassion for a woman in these situations – which, of course are rare – but it's hard to see how taking a child's life makes them better.feedback

Sep 09 2017 - Homosexuality

But gay weddings are legal. I wouldn't get on my moral high horse. If I went, I hope I'd enjoy it.feedback

Sep 09 2017 - Homosexuality

No, these are free vote matters as the Prime Minister said. I'm not trying to establish a theocracy [a government led by divine guidance]. These are my beliefs, but before I was born the legislation on abortion was settled. It's not going to be unsettled by me now.feedback

Sep 09 2017 - Homosexuality

Rape is a great evil and a terrible crime, but that's not made better by then aborting the unborn child.feedback

Sep 09 2017 - Homosexuality

I take the teachings of the Catholic Church seriously. Marriage is a sacrament and the decision of what is a sacrament lies with the Church not with Parliament.feedback

Sep 09 2017

I should've been surprised if it was otherwise.feedback

Sep 07 2017 - Abortion

If the party doesn't agree with his sentiments that may well be a tipping point. Et unam, sanctam, catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam.feedback

Sep 07 2017

Government can be a lonely place. If I am pushing the government the way I want to go, it is a very gentle push.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Homosexuality

I am completely opposed to abortion, life begins at the point of conception. With same-sex marriage, that is something that people are doing for themselves. With abortion, that is what people are doing to the unborn child.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Homosexuality

The circumstances in which someone in my position would become leader of the party would not exist.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Homosexuality

With same-sex marriage, that is something that people are doing for themselves. With abortion, that is what people are doing to the unborn child. Afraid so.feedback

Aug 30 2017 - Brexit

Mr Juncker's effort to extort money from us shows he is an amateur even at blackmail. Mr Juncker is a pound shop Bismarck, arrogant and bullying but without the charm.feedback

Aug 13 2017

Our last manifesto was much too defensive and much too managerial. That was why we went from having such a strong lead in the polls to having a very marginal election victory.feedback

Aug 13 2017

I wouldn't put any money on it. I think it's a reminder that it's August. People don't have a huge amount of pressing UK political news to write about, and therefore there's this jolly stuff about me. I am not a cabinet minister so it is hard to see how I could be a candidate. It is improbable bordering on impossible.feedback

Aug 11 2017 - Brexit

What's so peculiar about this new party is that it wants to call itself the Democrats and the first thing it wishes to do is to overturn a democratic decision. Their proposed name ought to be the Oligarchs rather than the Democrats.feedback

Aug 11 2017 - Brexit

The Lib Dems campaigned on a proposal [in effect] to reverse the referendum and the electorate blew a raspberry at them.feedback

Jul 21 2017

I don't think Nanny would approve because I'm sure she'd think I wouldn't do it properly.feedback

Jul 21 2017

I think that strict discipline of a child yet a fortnight old would be unreasonable by any standards.feedback

Jul 09 2017

In many single worker families the other parent may not be able to work because of family caring responsibilities while the effect of tax and benefit decisions need to be better understood. Essentially the government ought to ensure that family caring needs do not disadvantage single parent earners against dual income families.feedback

Jul 09 2017

There is no personal side to this, no personal animosity, no questioning of the integrity of the governor of the Bank of England, but inevitably the role of the Treasury select committee is to question the judgment of powerful people, and that is an important role, it has to be done. Not to do that would be failing in the duties of parliamentary scrutiny. I like cake, I like eating it, I like having it and I like baking bigger cakes, which was Margaret Thatcher's great saying. I think it's true – economically you want to bake a bigger cake rather than slicing up an existing cake differently.feedback

Jul 09 2017

Issues that affect Somerset would affect the whole asset management industry, so I don't think the conflict is that great, and everyone is aware of it, which is very important.feedback

Jul 09 2017

It's all hugely over-egged. The thing about the City is that it's not its geography, it's not its time-zone. It's that it is good at what it does. People want to do business here.feedback

Jul 09 2017

I've tried to reassure people that if I were to become chairman, I would want the committee to act properly in scrutinising the government and in holding the government and quangos to account, but not to use it as a means of pushing my own hobby horse.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - Labour Party

He said about 10 minutes ago 'in conclusion''. I fear as time goes past he may be in danger of inadvertently having misled the House.feedback

Jun 08 2017

The prime minister is the prime minister.feedback

May 30 2017 - Scottish independence

It is a devolved matter and Ms Sturgeon can raise her own taxes to spend more on the health service if she wants to – she has singularly failed to do. It is unreasonable for her to expect England to bail out her failing Government. As she wants to separate Scotland from England she should not meddle outside her own fiefdom.feedback

Mar 31 2017

It's extremely important that on our departure we are not subjest to EU regulation by the back door. We don't want to go from being strangled by red tape to being garotted by red tape.feedback

Mar 24 2017 - Brexit

It's condescension from the clever people, the masters of the universe. They don't like the fact that they've been overruled by the people who voted for Brexit.feedback

Mar 11 2017

I do not think it right that the government should introduce stealth taxes. Probate charges should relate to the cost of the probate work, which is broadly irrelevant to the size of the estate.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I think the court looked complacent when it came before the committee last week which reopened issues about the bank's governance that are more important than Charlotte Hogg's mistake.feedback

Jan 19 2017 - French election 2017

It would continue the unhappy tradition of the EU bureaucracy being the dumping ground for failed and unelectable politicians.feedback

Oct 12 2016

If the City has to do anything, it needs to do it now. I don't think it needs to do much but it needs to get on and do it.feedback
