Nigel Farage has spoken highly of Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg, insisting that he “could capture the imagination of the public”.
When asked by TalkRadio’s James Whale about David Davis and Boris Johnson, Nigel said that he “liked both of them”.
But he then added: “The one man who maybe could capture the imagination of the public because of his absolute sincerity and honesty is Jacob Rees-Mogg.”
“He’s honest, he’s straight with people.”
Nigel Farage: "Theresa May could be gone by the end of the summer. The one man who could capture the imagination of the public is Jacob Rees-Mogg." Would you vote for Jacob? Watch again ▼@THEJamesWhale | @virtualash | @Nigel_Farage | @Jacob_Rees_Mogg | @MoggMentum pic.twitter.com/CW5lkwJps4
