FORMER government Minister Anna Soubry launched an extraordinarily vicious and personal attack against fellow Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg this week.
In a pop-eyed, spittle-flecked rant, she denounced him over his personal life and mainstream Roman Catholic beliefs and demanded that pro-Brexit MPs like him be “slung out” of the party because they disagree with her and refuse to bend the knee to our unelected political masters in Brussels.
Rees-Mogg’s reported response was a lesson in exquisite politeness and a principled refusal to join Soubry rolling around in the political gutter.
He let it be known that he “thinks highly” of Soubry and thinks that she is “entitled to her views on Brexit”.
It is not the first time in recent days that Rees-Mogg has been the subject of personal abuse from rabid Remoaners.
