Brexit News: Rees-Mogg savages Remainers with ‘phoney outrage’ attempting to stop Brexit | UK | News

Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg snapped at Remainers as he took aim at their “fake” outrage over the latest Brexit developments. He added that it is inflated by individuals who did not want Brexit at all and would prefer not to see the many benefits of leaving the EU. Mr Rees-Mogg told the BBC: “First of all 17.4 million voted to leave the European Union.

“And A.V. Dicey the great constitutional theorist who set up the basis of Parliamentary sovereignty.

“Said that the point of our convention is that Parliament and the Cabinet could follow the will of the nation and that is what Parliament and Cabinet are doing.

“So this is completely constitutional and proper.

“There is going to be lots of time to debate before the 31st of October.

“Parliament will be sitting then and will be able to have whatever motions it wants.

“I think the outrage is phoney and it is created by people who don’t want us to leave the European Union.

“They are trying very hard to overturn the referendum result and don’t want the benefits of leaving the European Union including cheaper food clothing and footwear.

“Which we will get when we are free to set our own economic policies.”

The European Research Group (ERG) also emphasised this point on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

He said: “The candy floss of outrage in the last 24 hours is mostly from people who never wanted to leave.

The ERG leader hit back and accused critics of the decision to prorogue parliament of “crying constitutional wolf.”

He added: “There is a constitutional problem with what Mr Speaker said.

“Speaker Lenthall said that he had ‘no eyes to see, no tongue to speak unless directed by the House.’

“It is not constitutional for the Speaker to express his opinion without the direction of the House.”

Mr Rees-Mogg continued: “He has had no such direction and therefore his comments were in a private capacity, they cannot be as Mr Speaker.”
