Increasingly isolated and in self-denial, he talks of remainers being cave dwellers, failing to realise the joke is now on him
At the very end of his central London speech to mark a year to go till Brexit day, Jacob Rees-Mogg mentioned that he’d considered going to a Trappist monastery in Leicestershire if the UK had voted to stay in the European Union. If only he’d told us that before the referendum, the outcome might have been very different. Anything to shut him up. Even if it was only for half an hour or so.
The Tory MP and chair of the European Research Group is rapidly becoming a broken record. An increasingly isolated figure talking to fewer and fewer people about exactly the same things. For his latest outing there were just a handful of Brexit survivalists and his mother. Before long, he’ll be talking to himself in an empty room.
