JACOB Rees-Mogg asked to see the “beef” and “concrete change” from Prime Minister Theresa May’s European counterparts, while confirming he has spoken to “nobody” from the DUP or Conservative Party that has changed their mind on the Brexit deal.
Jacob Rees-Mogg hit out at the EU, accusing them of delivering nothing and providing no “concrete change”. The Tory Brexiteer also disclosed he had not spoken to anyone from the DUP or Conservative Party that have changed their mind on “the failures of the withdrawal agreement”. Sky News host Kay Burley remarked: “There was a drinks party at Number 10 on Monday and more and more people coming to see the Prime Minister’s point of view.” Mr Rees-Mogg replied with a chuckle: “I’m getting a bit concerned with this obsession with drink that seems to be cropping up in this programme this afternoon.
“I’m not convinced that a drinks party at Downing Street counts as a fundamental change in the Brexit debate, charming though such events are.
“But nobody I’ve spoken to in the Conservative Party or in the DUP has changed his or her mind on the failures of the Withdrawal Agreement.
“Mrs May may have had conversations with her European counterparts, but they don’t seem to have delivered anything.
Theresa May suffered a major backbench rebellion as MPs signalled their opposition to a no deal Brexit by defeating the Government in the Commons.
