Jacob Rees-Mogg honoured by Boris Johnson as former PM dishes out gongs to Brexit cronies
Boris Johnson has doled out knighthoods and other gongs to fellow Brexiteers as part of his resignation honours.
Former Brexit opportunities minister Jacob Rees-Mogg is among those to be made a "sir" in the list a perk for prime ministers who are leaving office.
Other knighthoods included Leave-supporting Conservative MPs Michael Fabricant and Conor Burns.
Damehoods were meanwhile dished out to Tory MPs Priti Patel and Andrea Jenkyns.
Mr Johnson's list was delayed by months of back and forth with Rishi Sunak's government, which has to approve nominations.
The list was released late on Friday - but some names, such as the of close ally Nadine Dorries, were missing.
