JACOB Rees-Mogg has blasted parts of the establishment and hinted he could be the “radical” insider to challenge the system.
The MP for North East Somerset said the worst way for the Government to work is to “manage decline” as he admits he is part of the establishment.
Speaking in an interview with Politico, Mr Rees-Mogg said: “I was effectively born into the establishment.
“But therefore, perhaps I know what is wrong with the establishment.”
Speaking of the establishment, he said: “It wants to preserve things that are sightly decaying and moth-eaten just to prevent any more moths getting in.
Since Mr Rees-Mogg was appointed the chairman of the European Research Group of Eurosceptic Conservatives, he has been tipped to be the next Conservative leader.
Rees-Mogg said that people on the inside of the establishment can turn out to be the most radical
“And sometime the people who are on the inside turn out to be the most radical.”
During the interview, he said the government would help people to lead their lives “rather than telling them, how they ought to live their lives”.
