Why Jacob Rees-Mogg is so uncharacteristically rude about Sir John Major

Brexit

Jacob Rees-Mogg is normally impeccably polite, but sent a particularly rude tweet about Sir John Major. James O'Brien explains why Mr Rees-Mogg is so shaken by the former Prime Minister.

O'Brien points out that when Major was Rees-Mogg's age, he'd already been Prime Minister for two years, having already been Chancellor of the Exchequer. Mr Rees-Mogg hasn't even been a junior minister.

And Major did that with no nepotism whatsoever.
