Lord Rees Mogg, RIP

I was saddened to read of the death of Lord Rees Mogg.  He was very much one of “the great and the good” in the UK, famed early on for his 1967 leader in The Times regarding the sentencing of Mick Jagger on a drugs charge: “who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?”

Always peripherally aware of the name, I remember him mostly as the (co-) author of The Sovereign Individual, one of the most prescient and personally influential books I have read.

The Times has a comprehensive obituary but, being News International, all but the opening paragraph is behind a firewall.
