I don't suppose Jacob Rees-Mogg has ever been accused of "insolence" before - on the contrary, he looks like the sort of person who, at school, would have been a smug, obsequious goody-two-shoes with not a detention to his name. But, according to fellow Tory MP Alan Duncan, Rees-Mogg's recent piece on Brexit in the Telegraph, "lecturing & threatening the PM", has earned him that label.
And Duncan isn't alone in condemning the ideologically motivated stance of the backbench toff and his European Research Group. Another Tory, Simon Hoare, described the article as "hectoring nonsense/blackmail". Nice to see those who got us into this whole mess scrapping amongst themselves as we sleepwalk/stagger into the Brexit mincing machine.
