Remain Vs Leave: Professor Gets Personal With Rees-Mogg

Jacob Rees-Mogg and AC Grayling were Iain Dale's guests for the Brexit Briefing this evening and the debate certainly got personal.
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.

And then things got a bit personal, when Grayling took aim at Rees-Mogg for claiming to represent the voice of the people - despite his privileged background.
