UK parliament leader Jacob Rees-Mogg: Outrage over suspending parliament is 'Phony'

UK parliament leader Jacob Rees-Mogg said that it was not constitutional for the speaker to express his opinion on suspending parliament as he did, because he was not directed to do so by parliament, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

He added that the outrage over suspending parliament was "Phony".

"All these people who are wailing and gnashing of teeth know that there are two ways of doing what they want to do," Rees-Mogg said. "One, is to change the government and the other is to change the law. If they do either of those will that will then have an effect.”

"If they don't have either the courage or the gumption to do either of those then we will leave on the 31st of October in accordance with the referendum result," Rees-Mogg stressed.
