Rees-Mogg's BLISTERING attack on 'foolish' Lammy after he compares Brexiteers to NAZIS


The prominent Brexiteer and chair of ERG said he felt sorry for the Labour MP following his controversial comments which made him “look foolish”. In a blistering attack, Mr Rees-Mogg said Mr Lammy’s comments were “unbalanced” and would “damage his reputation”. 

He tweeted: “I feel sorry for Mr Lammy, comparing a Parliamentary ginger group with an organisation and creed that killed six million Jewish people makes him look foolish and his comments unbalanced.

“It damages his reputation.” 

Jacob Rees-Mogg‘s furious rant comes after Mr Lammy, who has campaigned for a second referendum, was confronted about his comparison on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show. 

The Labour MP was shown a clip of himself speaking at an anti-Brexit rally in which he implied the ERG should not be appeased, comparing it to the appeasement of the Nazis before World War 2.

At the rally, he said: “I’m just looking over there at Winston Churchill. On the 30th of September 1938 he stood up in Parliament and he said we will not appease Hitler.

“I’m looking across to Nelson Mandela who will not give into apartheid. And today we say ‘We will not give in to the ERG’.” 

And when quizzed over his “unacceptable comparison”, he responded: “Andrew, I would say that it was not strong enough. In 1938 there were allies who hatched the plan for Hitler to annex parts of Czechoslovakia and Churchill said no, and he stood alone. We must not appease.

“We’re in a situation now – and let me just be clear, I’m an ethnic minority – we have in the ERG and in Jacob Rees-Mogg someone who is happy to put onto his web pages the horrible, racists AFD party.

“A party that is Islamophobic and on the far right of the German system.

“They’re happy to use the phrase ‘Grand Wizard’: KKK is what it evokes to me when I think of that phrase and the deep south.

I’m sorry but very, very seriously, of course, we should not appease that.”
