VIDEO: Jacob Rees-Mogg visits Louth to fight for ‘Brexit’




One of the Conservative Party’s most rebellious MPs spoke in front a sell-out crowd in Louth yesterday evening (June 8), where he slammed the European Union as a “sclerotic, bureaucratic, undemocratic, heavy-handed institutional set up” and urged residents to ‘vote leave’ in the upcoming referendum.

The Vote Leave campaign event was organised by Louth Town Councillor Dan Turner and held in the Tennyson Suite at the Brackenborough Hotel, with popular backbencher Mr Rees-Mogg invited as the special guest speaker.

The event also saw speeches from Lincoln MP Karl McCartney (Cons), Lincolnshire County Councillors Colin Mair (UKIP) and Colin Davie (Cons), and military expert and Conservative campaigner Matthew Glanville.

The audience was also given the opportunity to watch the campaign’s official feature-length documentary, Brexit: The Movie, before moving on to a question and answer session with the five speakers.

Following this, Tristan Matthews - a local campaigner with cerebral palsy who has travelled all over the country on public transport to hand out leaflets for the Leave campaign - received a gift, presented by Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Last night’s event is the first of many official Brexit: The Movie screenings that are due to take place over the next fortnight - visit www.voteleavetakecontrol.org/events for further details.
