Rees-Mogg erupts at Charles-VDL summit in fury at botched Brexit talks

Jacob Rees-Mogg has erupted at King Charles III meeting Ursula von der Leyen and has savaged Downing Street’s “mishandling” of Brexit talks. The European Commission President will meet the monarch for tea at Windsor Castle later this morning after her meeting with Rishi Sunak, where they are expected to confirm a new deal over the Northern Ireland Protocol. But the meeting between Ms von der Leyen and the King has sparked a furious reaction from many politicians.

Mr Rees-Mogg told “Personally I don’t think it will work because the DUP will not back it now. It’s a shame because it is probably a good deal but the coms has been so badly handled and made everybody very suspicious.”

“Without the DUP on board there may as well be no deal. We need everybody to agree and I’m afraid Downign street’s mishandling has made that feel highly unlikely.”
