A towering monument stands near Loch Shiel where Bonnie Prince Charlie launched the Jacobite rebellion in 1745 but it seems unlikely that there will be any memorial in Manchester Town Hall to mark the rise of the Neo-Jacobites on 2nd October last year.
The event was a packed Conservative conference fringe, organised by the Bruges Group which cemented the legend of Jacob Rees Mogg, helped by an invasion of leftwing protesters. After calmly debating with the socialists before they quietly left, he opened his speech with the confident righteousness that all ideologically driven groups want to hear.
“We don’t need to shout, we don’t need to scream. We need calm considered deliberative discussion and then we can show people that conservative ideas and values are best for this nation.”
A movement in need of a “sound” leader had finally found its man. After the referendum Boris had proven to be too soft on immigration then leadership, Gove untrustworthy, and Farage disappeared stage right pursuing Donald Trump.
