Jacob Rees-Mogg, Member of Parliament for North East Somerset, presents our fourth annual Churchill lecture on the subject of Britain and the wider world post-Brexit.
Jacob was elected as the Member of Parliament for North East Somerset in May 2010, with a majority of 4914 and again in May 2015 with an increased majority of 12749. Being elected fulfilled his ambition to represent the Somerset parliamentary seat in which his family has lived for generations. Within Parliament, Jacob sits on the Treasury Select Committee which examines the expenditure, administration and policy of HM Treasury, HM Revenue & Customs, and associated public bodies, including the Bank of England and the Financial Conduct Authority. Between 2010 and 2015 Jacob sat on the Procedure committee which considers the practice and procedure of the House in the conduct of business and the European Scrutiny Committee which assesses the legal and political importance of each EU document, deciding which is debated within the House.
After Eton Jacob read History at Trinity College Oxford, before moving into finance being based in Hong Kong and later moving back to London. He now runs his own company, Somerset Capital Management, which specialises in investment management for pension funds and charitable organisations.
Jacob is married to Helena and has five young children.
Sir Winston Churchill, the son of a British father and an American mother, delivered his first political address at Claverton Manor, now the home of the American Museum, in 1897.
