‘Set this right!’ Jacob Rees Mogg berates Jeremy Corbyn as Commons reacts to hilarious dig


JEREMY CORBYN was ridiculed by MP Jacob Rees-Mogg during the Queen’s Speech debate which left the Commons in an uproar.

The Conservative MP mocked Jeremy Corbyn as the leader delivered his speech in the House of Commons.

Mr Rees-Mogg stood up and berated the Labour Party leader for taking too long with his speech.

He said: “The right honourable gentleman, the leader of the opposition said about 10 minutes ago ‘in conclusion’.

“I fear as time as passed he may be in danger of inadvertently having misled the House.

“I thought you might like to take this opportunity to set this right.”

The chamber exploded with laughter following the remark from Mr Rees-Mogg, before the Speaker was forced to try to bring order to the Commons.

John Bercow said: “Now some people may think that the honourable gentleman is fastidious and others may conclude that he is pedantic.

“You pay your money and you take your choice. But there is no disorder here.”

The Labour Party leader then responded to the remark from Mr Rees-Mogg.

Mr Corbyn replied: “Just for the record, I have given way six times in this debate and there are six days of debate, so you will have plenty of time to make your points in the debate.”

Before the Queen’s Speech debate, the Tory MP was embroiled in a Brexit debate as he raged at Remainer MPs for claiming the UK should stay in the single market.

He said: “The referendum was quite clear about leaving the single market and quite clearly about stopping freedom of movement and quite clear about having control of our own laws.

“The ballot paper said leaving the European Union.

“Staying in the single market, staying in the customs union and abiding by EU law means you’re still in the European Union.”

The House of Commons were debating the Queen’s Speech as Theresa May faced criticism over her plans for the next two years.

The Queen began her speech in the House of Lords focusing on the European Union divorce.

She said: “My government’s priority is to secure the best possible deal as the country leaves the European Union.

“My ministers are committed to working with Parliament, the devolved administrations, business and others to build the widest possible consensus on the country’s future outside the European Union.”
