Jacob Rees-Mogg has reassured the Conservative faithful with promises that Brexit will be a monumental victory for Britain, just like Waterloo, Trafalgar and the American War of Independence.
Despite the War of Independence being seen by many as a defeat for Britain and a continued erosion of their powers, Rees-Mogg described it as an inadvertent triumph.
“Although we didn’t instigate it, the War of Independence was a great victory for Britain,” enthused the North East Somerset MP.
“It showed us just how powerful we could be alone, just like Brexit will.
“And moreover it put us into a position to join up in the future with great organisations, such as the EU.”
