Rees-Mogg is a great MP he might make a good junior minister., but I doubt he would be a good senior minister or PM. He's a conviction politician, I think he is genuinely intellectually honest and could probably deliver well thought out policy on areas that fit his worldview. I wonder if he has the moral flexibility and realpolitik for high office though. I think Parliament is better for having him even if many think he's out of touch. Edit: don't find much to disagree with in that create streets opinion piece. If you'd asked me that question 20 years ago I'd have agreed with what that says.
