Recenze bezesporu velmi Trololo publikace napsané podobně Trololo politikem.
Jacob Rees-Mogg’s tribute to his idols of the Victorian age is trite, tedious and muddle-headed
Jacob Rees-Mogg is the stupid kind of Tory’s idea of what a clever kind of Tory ought to sound like. He knows a few long and obscure words. He can employ a smattering of the Latin phrases that he picked up during his education at an expensive academy near Slough. Among the easily bamboozled, the double-breasted suits, the retro spectacles and the patrician drawl can be confused with seriousness. So I suppose that this attempt to show that he deserves a reputation as a Tory intellectual may do quite well at the bookshop at the next Conservative conference. Yet even the dimmer type of Tory may twig that they have been duped once they embark on 400-plus pages of inch-deep ponderings conveyed in plodding prose.
My Lovecraft is full of dreams (and tentacles)!

He was, first, a reactionary on the big issues of his day: the extension of the franchise; the easing of discrimination against Catholics; and the high tariffs on grain imports that profited landed Tories at the expense of everyone else. Then he embraced reform, broke with the diehards in his own party and combined with the opposition to end the Corn Laws. This is what makes him so fascinating. And too much for Rees-Mogg’s baffled synapses, which can’t handle this much complexity. Nearly every historian judges that Peel was correct to repeal the disastrous tariffs that contributed to the murderous famine in Ireland and alienated less affluent Britons from the governing elite. Rees-Mogg almost seems to agree only then to suggest that Peel made a mistake by “dividing (Conservatives) against themselves”. So was Peel right to put enlightened policy, free trade and saving lives before short-term party interest? Or was he wrong? Nearly 200 years later, muddle-headed Mogg doesn’t know.
