A model for politicians of faith

A model for politicians of faith

Jacob Rees-Mogg Jacob Rees-Mogg is a remarkable British politician: although he is well known in Britain as a wealthy, old-Etonian and Catholic aristocrat with no cabinet experience, he rocketed last summer into the lead in popularity among potential Conservative successors to Prime Minister Theresa May.
