Jacob Rees-Mogg has stunningly silenced a Channel 4 presenter over his attempt to create a fear over what people call a “no deal” Brexit. Mr Mogg took aim at the presenter, after the apparent wording used claimed that leaving on “WTO” terms would be a “disaster”. It didn’t end well for the “biased” presenter as he was quickly put back in his place, many are congratulating Mogg.
Mr Rees-Mogg told Channel 4 News: “Parliament passed with an overwhelming majority the Article 50 act to begin a two-year process. It passed the withdrawal act, both of these in the knowledge that if no deal was agreed we would leave without a deal.” It comes as speculation mounts that some MP’s are carving plans to delay Brexit and extend the transition process of Article 50, in which gives the Government more time to agree a transitional agreement with the EU.
Mogg then added: ”An indicative vote cannot challenge the law which was passed by Parliament. The Government should respect the law, Parliament has the means to legislate, if it hasn’t legislated, the law it passed what if the withdrawal act was passed in June of last year.” The United Kingdom is on course to leave on the 29th of March 2019, with or without a deal. Many Brexiteers are hopeful that the country leaves on WTO terms.
