Quietly the Brexit impact begins 2 Months, 1 Week ago Karma: 49
I could never understand the Brexit madness apart from the fact that such complex matters should never be decided by a referendum asking the ill informed for an opinion.

"Poor but proud!" People don't like admitting they're wrong so I've difficulty believing those polls claiming that if the referendum was held now a majority would vote Remain. I think things would have to get very uncomfortable indeed before most Leave voters realised they had got it wrong and/or been manipulated against their own interests. And judging from the enthusiastic reception for Jacob Reese-Mogg and his views on Brexit, among other things, on last week's Question Time - awed silence as he spoke (the less well-spoken Labour MP was heckled) and rapturous applause when he finished - there are still people who like the upper classes telling them what's good for them about the EU or anything else. I suspect that being someone a lot of people still secretly think is one of their betters was also part of Boris's pulling-power with the voters.

I can't remember exactly, I'm afraid, other than that he was very pro-Brexit. One thing I do remember is that a Daily Mirror columnist sitting next to him asked the MPs on the panel whether they had refused their latest pay increase and while Caroline Lucas indicated that she had foregone it (or donated it to something, can't remember), JR-M didn't answer the question and seemed rather uncomfortable.

Entire Question Time of 6 July:

Whenever Rees-Mogg appears on HIGNFY, he is treated like the knobhead that he is, like Walter from the bash street kids, a posh weakling.
