Jacob Rees-Mogg has warned Theresa May that Brexiteer MPs have 'not gone soft over Christmas' and are preparing to vote down her Brexit deal.
The Eurosceptic rebel ringleader said that he expected more than 100 Tories to revolt against the Withdrawal Agreement when it comes to the crunch Commons vote this month.
It comes amid reports that Tory activists have effectively gone on strike - refusing to campaign or raise party funds - amid fury at the PM's Brexit deal.
Theresa May had hoped that her mutinous MPs would calm down over the festive season and return to Parliament ready to compromise on Brexit.
Theresa May has insisted she will go ahead with a crucial vote on her Brexit deal amid growing speculation that it could be delayed.
The prime minister said she was seeking further clarification from the EU to address the concerns of MPs, as well as specific measures relating to the backstop on Northern Ireland before the vote in the week beginning 14 January.
She also said she would look at giving parliament a greater say in how the UK’s future relationship would be negotiated, but refused to say exactly what that might be.
But Mr Rees-Mogg - who led the failed bid to oust Mrs May as Tory leader late last year - insisted that Tory Brexiteers are in no mood to back down.
He told The Sunday Express: 'This strength of feeling ought to be responded to by the leadership of the party and not stamped upon.'
The North-East Somerset MP added that 'the backstop on its own is an intolerable failure of the negotiations'.
Mrs May had to postpone the planned vote on her deal last month, admitting she would be defeated by a massive margin.
And No10 is understood to be considering delaying the vote - currently planned for January 15 - again as they push for last-ditch concessions from the EU to get it over the line.
MPs are back to work in Parliament tomorrow after a two-week break, but Remainers and Brexiteers are already gearing up their battles to derail the PM's deal.

International Law??? Beware of that term, folks. It is a trap because international law does simply not exist and is a trick of the tongue to trick nations into submission to international laws that strip states and nations of their sovereign rights.
Think of it this way, do you have a friendship law that you are required to stick to even if it means your friends get to abuse you because it’s “law”? Of course not, you simply leave and make other friends. But what happens when you subjugate yourself and accept “friendship law” … you lose your freedom and liberty. It’s a trap and should be rejected at ALL instances.

It’s utterly insane to offer foreigners the same rights of citizens. There’s no point and purpose in citizenship then. Let’s just get rid off Mogg’s rights in parliament and give equal rights to all who wish to speak on his behalf since nothing means anymore.
I’m curious how many of his employees would be effected. Full disclosure would be important. And I like him otherwise, but he is being quite generous with other people’s money and opportunities. Maybe if “immigrants” are made to pay higher tax rates to compensate for the theft of what Mogg wants to give away, which isn’t his to give away.

When is the government going to recognise that we the people want to leave the EU, even with a NO DEAL. We can see the corruption and want no part of it - the golden hand shakes - are trying to break the people. Don't they realise that the EU will punish England for daring to vote to leave. They will make us pay for the next 20-years if we broker a deal under these conditions - we need to leave NOW and consider a deal in the future that best works for us.

How can anyone admire this man? He is absurd. Aaalllways remember that Mogg has never suggested a workable solution to Brexit.
Gulliver tied down By the Lilliputians? This shows that Mogg think the UK is bigger and better than all of Europe combined. He is deluded and desperate for a return to 'make the world England' which can never be.

My 'pretty little head' can't think about fluffy kittens any more for worrying about the open power we have handed to the ECJ to make far-reaching, UK impacting laws without it going before the UK parliament for debate and vote. It is unbelievable! May's Brexit deal is unbelievable. But I think Remainer May has got her way over Bexit....game, set and match...it isn't going to happen. There is no point in voting anymore, we live in a non-democracy, a tin-pot country where if the powers that be don't like the majority outcome of a vote - they can just overturn the result and do whatever they want.

JRM is an absolutely great politician - what a great pity we do not have more like him in the House. Most of the current MP's are just softbrained rabble. Jacob has insisted that he is not interested in being PM - but he would make an excellent minister in any department any future PM would care to give him - Chancellor or Home Secretary. Just love the man.

These remainers talk about another referendum, i mean are they so stupid, now people are much more aware, the vote be far much more for leaving the EU. They want a referendum then on the deal. We voted for exit , meaning there is no deal, we are leaving and you get jack shit. Would the government give their own money to the EU rather than take our tax paying hard earned monyt, better well spent on the British economy to boost jobs and wages, so our people can afford to buy a house to live in rather than live with mum and dad till a ripe old age.

See Philip Green's the Devil's Bargain on Trump's involvement in distorting the vote. It was also no mere advisory referendum as the 2916 one was but for all time.

He is right to say that the law that we take back from our time with the EU must all be scrutinised and passed by Parliament,and certainly not left to lawyers.Watch America if you want to see how a judicial system can be corrupted to the point that they will act as judge jury and executioner without bothering with a trial,or conversely, and more usual protect high ranking politicians by not investigating or prosecuting at all.Our institutions are topped off,especially the Law by EU globalist trained lawyers promoting globalist theories,they won't disappear overnight.'Common Purpose' has been the flagship for everything.Trump has consistently weeded out law enforcement in Washington, but they are still there in an endless succession.Don't assume ours is any better, just more secretive and less leaky.Swamp clearance is required.

Nobody voted for the ERG. The choice given was to leave or remain, not to leave on a randomised deal which nobody could know the contents of. Politicians are instruments of ideologies and do this to ensure a wealthy retirement and are therefore traitors to democracy. Nobody voted for May or any other PM, Cameron did a runner and dropped the whole country in this mess and May bought the DUP, who refuse to support her. This will end with another referendum being held and Britain will remain in the EU as a more divided entity.
Nanny Robinson (8 months ago)
What a totally different position we would have been in if true Leave MPs had been allowed to conduct our withdrawal negotiations. May has allowed the EU to walk all over us - embarrassed our once great country and worked to ensure that we do not leave the EU. May is a disgrace - she has no shame.

Every man should have a Country of his own to find sanctury, a place he can not be questioned about his right to be there, its your home and a place to be free to express yourself and debate and discuss the meaning of your own existance and how we can improve the existance of others who want to grow and promote harmony in soiety. A place we can agree and disagree and find new ways to improve our lives in Harmony and peace and sensible discorse. No body should be forced to join any Religion becacuse Religion is based on what others want people to believe without fact or evidence to substanciate their agenda. If Religion is designed to deceive the people then I say it should be BANNED ASAP. We can not have a Free and Open Society believing in foolishness, and make it Law, while people are killing each other based on a Myth, thats witchcraft, it must be Banned for all TIMES. The only way we can grow as a civilized society to to Ban all these False Religions. The Roman Catholic Church needs to be abolished, the Child Trafficking, and Child Sexual Molestation is the first reason it should be Banned for all TIMES, enough is enough, Islam, Judaism Banned all their LIES has been proved to be foolishness, with no facts or evidence. If people turned up in Court and Lied and said Jesus said theyu can kill people based on Race, when we all know its a lie, its the reason many Black people was Lynched in America, and People Put into Slavery in America because the Jews claimed it was Lawful based on the olour of people and their race. They are doing the same thing in Plaestine, killing and stealing what is not their to have and claim God told them to terrorise whole Nations.

To have these discussions NOW, months before the date of leaving when years have passed since the vote is amazing. But ending up here when most of the campaigns focused on things which were not true isn't actually so strange. Within those who voted leave many did it based on beliefs about how the future would look that is incompatible with that of other people who voted for the same thing since they were all told different things about what leaving would mean. Now when you draw closer, these differences will ofc make themselves heard.

Once President Trump restructures the federal reserve, the cabal run central banks will collapse. All these main parties are controlled, especially the green party with their blatant lie about climate change, when 72,000 scientists say we are at the beginning of a mini ice age. This is just another scam by the 1 percenters to rip us off with more tax, which literally means they are taxing us to breath the air that they are poisoning with their chem trails.

Brexit serves the people who want to squirrell the UK's departing flight of wealth post Brexit in offshore trusts at the expense of the UK working man. Rees Mogg's Somerset Funds do this in Singapore and his newly created Dublin based EU funds have been straegically created so that his company can capitalise on the mess he is making of the UK. Morover, during the post Brexit period, while lining his pockets, Rees Mogg can watch the country go to the devil economically and politically and Rees Mogg is just one the people we know about. Its amazing. The biggest robbery in the history of nation states and nobody can see it! The Referendum was a flip of a coin decision to stay or leave the EU. Is that how you decide to deal with an issue of this importance? Is that how you end a marriage of 46 years? End the debate on the peripheral issues being debated here. Stop the rot, go to the country and let the people vote on the real issues and decide to stay in the EU or leave, knowing why they are leaving or staying for the right reasons and not be held to ransom by Rees Mogg and his self serving Tory rump, the ERG, who want to create a vassal state with no laws other than illusory WTO rules and non existent new markets.

I notice that 'BEXIT' is so vital to these entitled cretins that the House of Commons is absolutely packed! I am even growing bored with the gentlemanliness of Jacob Rees-Mogg. We KNOW that the problem is Parliament: where 'Remainers' outnumber 'Leavers' by approximately 2:1. This contrasts with the view of the British People who voted, in 2016, to LEAVE the EU. Thus, Parliament no longer represents the PEOPLE; not only THE POLITICAL CLASS. Its illegitimacy to be a 'representative' body, has been exposed by the 2016 Referendum. HOORAH! At last, the People have learned the lesson that Parliament is NOT representative of the British People; but remains the tool of the 'entitled elites'.
