The Times becomes a Tory freesheet

A little explanation is required for William Rees Mogg’s article in The Times for the battle of the marginal seats in the West Country.

Two of his children, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Annunziata Rees-Mogg, so happen to be candidates in Somerset, which the former editor of the paper bluntly acknowledges:

I do not pretend to be impartial about the campaigns being fought by my children.

Having recognised the damage that father William could inflict on the Tories, David Cameron has asked Annunziata to change her name to plain Nancy Mogg for the election campaign.

Soon, if Dear Rupert gets his way, we will all have to pay to read these little exercises in family promotion.
