Jacob Rees-Mogg has told his twitter followers that we must ‘trust the people’ on Brexit.
Rees-Mogg also announced a campaign to alter the dictionary definition of the word ‘people’, and offered possible alternatives such as; ‘Eton Millionaires’, ‘Daily Mail readers’ and ‘Anybody without a mortgage’.
Rees-Mogg shared a Telegraph article suggesting that Prime minister Boris Johnson is siding with the people instead of the elite over Brexit.
Rees-Mogg said that Johnson is siding with the ‘ordinary people’ of England.
“Prime Minister Johnson has expressed solidarity with the majority of British people; the hard working hedge fund managers, estate owners, and ancestors of industrialists.”
Rees-Mogg previously wrote a spectator article where he discussed his prejudice towards the oxford comma.
“I believe that the people share my views, and by that I mean the British Elite,” Mogg stated.
“I’ve always been baffled when the term ‘people’ is used to refer to the quagmire of working class rabble that are spread across Britain like an unfortunate miasma. I was bought up to use that word to refer to my father’s colleagues and the heads of large conglomerates.”
When asked about what terms they used to discuss other members of British Society, Mogg stated “I don’t know.We never talked about them.”
