Five times Twitter lit up over Jacob Rees-Mogg

Overtime looks back on the controversial Conservative’s recent career.

  1. Jacob Rees-Mogg infuriated opponents when taking a lie down in the House of Commons during a key Brexit debate.

2. The Old Etonian and his son needed a police escort to get past protesters outside Parliament on their way to a special Saturday Commons debate.

3. The Tory MP for North East Somerset broke the record for the longest word used in the Commonns with this 29-letter Latin tongue-twister.

4. When the Oxford history graduate published a book on the Victorians, it’s fair to say that he didn’t get top marks.

5. This week’s comments on the Grenfell Tower disaster provoked a huge backlash, not least in this emotional response from grime artist, Stormzy.
