Jacob Rees-Mogg teaches SNP a history lesson in the House of Commons

Jacob Rees-Mogg, the newly appointed Leader of the Commons, has given the Scottish National Party a history lesson during his first stint at the dispatch box.

The SNP’s Pete Wishart began by reminding the man known as ‘the Honourable Member for the early 20th Century’, that ‘he’s Leader of the House of Commons, not the House of Plantagenet, or the House of Tudor.’

Rees-Mogg responded by reminding Wishart that ‘I would point out that the House of Commons predates the House of Tudor, it started in 1265’ before relating a brief history of the Commons.
