  • Basically I want people to be able to get on with their lives without the government bossing them about. I’m all in favour of nannies but not the nanny state.


  • Once we have left and we have control, there is a political argument about what levels of immigration we should have... that is really going to be a challenge and an issue for the competence of the Home Office. It is not so much a question of Brexit. It is Brexit which makes it possible, it is then administrative efficiency that will make it happen.



  • My suspicion is that any delay to Brexit is a plot to stop Brexit. This would be the most grievous error that politicians could commit.


  • I think it is a real scandal that UNICEF should be playing politics in this way when it is meant to be looking after people in the poorest, the most deprived, countries of the world where people are starving, where there are famines and where there are civil wars. And they make cheap political points of this kind, giving, I think, £25,000 to one council. It is a political stunt of the lowest order.


Quotes about Rees-MoggEdit
