The Brexit Briefing Gets Personal As Rees-Mogg Comes Under Attack
Iain Dale has to act as referee on the latest episode of the Brexit Briefing, as Jacob Rees-Mogg and AC Grayling go toe to toe.
Grayling, an ardent Remainer who belived Britain will rejoin the EU in his lifetime, was accused of "sour grapes" by Rees-Mogg. He countered that actually, he was just showing a "determination" that the Leave side didn't like.
