White flags over Whitehall! Rees-Mogg blasts agreed Brexit deal vowing to vote against it

JACOB Rees-Mogg did not hold back this evening as he launched a blistering attack on Theresa May after the UK and EU officials finally reached an agreement on the draft text of a Brexit deal.

Leading Brexiteer politician Jacob Rees-Mogg claimed the Brexit deal agreed between the UK and EU officials this afternoon was a "betrayal". The Tory MP for Somerset North reacted furiously to the news, telling the BBC that there were "white flags up all over Whitehall". Theresa May is believed to be calling in ministers this evening to run through the agreement text before an emergency Cabinet meeting tomorrow afternoon.

Mr Rees-Mogg pledged to vote against the deal, before bluntly adding: "I hope the Cabinet will block it and I hope Parliament will block it."

Minutes after the news broke, the Brexiteer told the BBC: "It is difficult to see how this is not Northern Ireland ruled by Dublin.

"May has said many things, that Brexit would mean Brexit, that no deal is better than a bad deal. What she says and what she does do not match."

"It is a failure to deliver on Brexit and it is potentially dividing up the United Kingdom.
