Tommy Robinson, as we have been reporting, has certainly got alot on his plate right now with exposing the BBC through the ‘Panodrama’ documentary. So, he maybe a little bemused to discover he could be about to be elected to the European Parliament, according to Jacob Rees-Mogg.
Mogg made the comments in his regular ‘Moggcast’ on Conservative Home. He said that Donald Tusk’s “special place in hell” jibe was diliberate and it revealed a deep-seated hostility to Britain for “blowing a raspberry” at the Eurofederalism of Tusk and Juncker who regard the Eurofederalist project of one European nation in almost “religious terms”.
British euroscepticism has previously been “mainstream”, where as on continental Europe, Rees-Mogg argued that it was mainly the province of “extreme” Parties.
“I would be very concerned if there was a delay to Brexit then that would be a way for Tommy Robinson to win the European Elections.
If we go beyond July then there would be European elections and, with Tommy Robinson linked to UKIP in “one way or another” that would be a “free-hit” for an “extremist” to win them, he argued.
He went onto say that he didn’t think Nigel Farage’s new Brexit Party would be “where the votes would go” in this eventuality.
