James O’Brien took to the airwaves over Jacob Rees-Mogg tweet

James O’Brien took to the airwaves on LBC Radio to point out he sees a large problem over a tweet, Jacob Rees-Mogg, chairman of the European Research Group (ERG) posted.

Rees-Mogg sent a tweet urging the UK to be “difficult” while the UK remains in the EU. In recent days it appears the ERG chairman has been getting increasingly angry over Theresa May’s extension to Article 50.

O’Brien pointed out the UK has had very little power in EU discussions. He said, “You were told for several years that the European Union is an institution over which we exercise next to no influence whatsoever. We are forced to cowtow to whatever directives come from Brussels. We have no power to stop things we don’t like.

“Which makes this intervention from the chairman of the European Research Group so fascinating.

“Years spent telling us we have no influence, no control “we’ve got to take back control,” then the J-dog sends that tweet.

“We will never know whether Jacob Rees-Mogg has always believed that we have the power to exercise enormous influence, albeit in his rather pathetic bleating tweet this morning, negative power, sabotage.

“But you can’t do that unless you have the power in the first place.”
