Rees-Mogg admits Tory gerrymandering and that it backfired. Ha!

Jaw-dropping that Rees-Mogg admits the voter ID law introduced recently WAS gerrymandering (changing law to fix election results) but it backfired on the Tories in the locals. 

They changes meant they lost. Oh the irony. 

“Speaking at the National Conservatism conference in Westminster on Monday, Rees-Mogg said: “Parties that try and gerrymander end up finding their clever scheme comes back to bite them, as dare I say we found by insisting on voter ID for elections.
“We found the people who didn’t have ID were elderly and they by and large voted Conservative.
The former Tory cabinet minister added: “So we made it hard for our own voters and we upset a system that worked perfectly well.”
