Jacob Rees-Mogg

The Hon Jacob Rees-Mogg MP has represented North East Somerset, where his family has lived for 5 centuries, for the Conservatives since 2010.

The son of former Times editor Lord Rees-Mogg, Jacob attended Eton and Oxford but has since made his own way in life, founding £3.4 billion investment company Somerset Capital Management.

He certainly knows how to make an impact: whether canvassing voters accompanied by his Nanny, calling for closer dialogue with UKIP, espousing the virtues of zero hour contracts or knocking ‘em dead on Have I Got News For You?

He’s been described as ‘David Cameron’s worst nightmare’: will it be sleepless nights for us too?
