Annunziata Rees-Mogg, a former Tory parliamentary candidate and sister of Jacob Rees-Mogg, hasn’t been far from the headlines since she appeared at the launch of the Brexit Party. Ms Rees-Mogg is now planning on fighting for the Peterborough seat vacated by Labour MP Fiona Onasanya. Ms Onasanya became the first parliamentarian in British history to be booted out of the Commons and stripped of her seat by a recall petition. The MP was jailed for lying to police about a driving offense.
Now, with Labour and the Tories losing support up and down the country because of their failure to deliver Brexit, the Eton-educated politician could triumph.
At the last-election Labour marginally won by 607 votes.
Peterborough also voted to leave the European Union, with 60.9 percent of voters opting to leave.
Last night she said: “I’m focusing on the EU elections at present.”
