The Member for the 18th Century is getting stuck in with his position as Leader of the House of Commons...

https://www.itv.com/news/2019-07-26/itv ... -to-staff/

Quote:
The new Leader of the House of Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg has instructed all staff in his new office to use imperial measurements and refer to ‘non-titled males’ as ‘esquire’.

Issuing a style guide in the first week of his job, he also bans colleagues from using various words in correspondence with other MPs and the public.

Among the list of bizarre rules, he asks staff not to use the words “got”, “very” or “equal”.

LedByDonkeys, the guys with the mysterious funding that almost certainly broke electoral law.

Funny, accuracy didn't matter, only Russians, when it was the Leave side being investigated.

How was the tweet doctored, or was it just fake news? ;)

OTOH Rees-Mogg has history of backing second EU referendums. :lol:

The second video tells it all. ;)
