Embodiment of arguments against wealth, privilege, and inbreeding, MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, says that Eton, Oxford, and a few years juggling other people’s money means he knows more than High Court Judges do about constitutional law.
Rather than spending hours in court, carefully listening to legal argument, fierce brexiter Rees-Mogg spent hours in TV studios, waiting to spout nonsense as soon as the High Court decision on triggering Article 50 was announced. So it was no surprise that he was at Sky News, already wearing his make-up, when it was.
Seconds after the judgement was given and before reading the text, Rees-Mogg pounced “Will of the people, 17 million voters, the country has spoken, referendum. These unelected Judges have largely come from a background of wealth, privilege and inbreeding. People like that should have no say in the running of this country.”
The government has announced it’s intention to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court but Rees-Mogg says he won’t let it rest there if the case is lost.”We’ll take this to the European Court if necessary.”
