“I implore you all to write to me with the regulations you want abolished — those which make life harder for small businesses, which shut out the competition or simply increase the cost of operating,’ he added.
Calling for their assistance, Rees-Mogg went on to write: "Through thousands of small changes, we can enact real economic change — which means The Sun’s readers will feel a real Brexit bonus in their pockets and in their lives every day.”
The unusual move hasn’t exactly gone down well with social media users, with some labelling him a “Brexit agony aunt”.
You know shits hit the fan when Jacob Rees-Mogg has become the latest agony aunt in the Sunpic.twitter.com/zR3IsPp1XS
1st day on the job as new Minister for Brexit Opportunities\n\nAnd Jacob-Rees Mogg has opted to delegate his entire role\n\n...to The Sun readershttps://www.thesun.co.uk/news/17603553/sun-readers-tell-me-of-eu-regulation-abolished/\u00a0\u2026
Rees-Mogg's article in the Sun today gives the whole Brexit game away. An appeal for the everyman to do their bit as the government has no idea how to make Brexit work. "Your country needs you" he says, invoking WW1. We don't know how to make Brexit any good, please help us.
Jacob Rees-Mogg turning to readers of The Sun to write to him with examples of EU laws they would like to see repealed is simultaneously one of the funniest and saddest things I\u2019ve seen in a while. Can you imagine opening that mailbag?
Rees-Mogg, who famously said that the benefits of Brexit could take 50 years to materialise, becomes the first minister to have a role devoted to Brexit since David Frost resigned from the post of Chief Negotiator of Task Force Europe in December.
The 52-year-old previously served as leader of the house of commons from 2019 to 2022, having become the MP for North East Somerset in May 2010.
