New game: Where's the Brexit Economic Impact Assessment?

David Schneider

Brexit in a nutshell:

MP: “Can we make an informed decision about how Brexit will affect people and the economy?”

Rees-Mogg: “Go take a flying dump!”

[Twitter video]

The actual exchange in the House yesterday:

Kirsty Blackman (SNP, Aberdeen North): Can the Leader of the House let us know if an economic impact assessment on the deal has been carried out yet, and if it has, will it be published tomorrow in time for us to look at it before the second reading?

Jacob Rees-Mogg (Tory, the 19th century): If you ask an economist anything, you get the answer you want. [Sits down]

The only sane response short of darting across the floor of the House and ramming Rees-Mogg's order book up his over-entitled arse:

I'm not sure what's worse: Rees-Mogg's arrogant non-answer, or the fact that business in the House moved briskly on.
