Conservative MP and staunch Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg revealed on radio that a recent discussion with a London black cab driver highlighted a “brilliant point” on where his priorities should lie in relation to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.
Rees-Mogg speaking on TalkRadio said: “I was in a taxi yesterday. The taxi driver said to me, which I thought was a brilliant point, that when he voted he didn’t vote for a deal or no deal. He voted to Leave. And that is what he expects to happen, and I think that’s the view of the majority of the British people.”
The MP has come under serious criticism following the failed attempt to remove the current Prime Minister Theresa May via a vote of no confidence.
