‘Fiddling while Brussels BURNS’ Jacob Rees-Mogg fires at Labour for wasting Commons time
Labour MP Chris Bryant later chimed in and fired at the Government.
He said: “If the Government had a programme I’d be happy for us to debate the Government’s programme – but there isn’t any legislation.”
However, Mr Rees-Mogg issued a heavy blow and questioned Labour’s stance on Brexit.
He said: “I think the opposition has today misfired. To everything, there is a season and a time to any purpose under heaven.
“But this was not the season, this was not the time, there is so much that is going on of general urgency and this strikes me as fiddling whilst Brussels burns.”
