“Referring to Tory arch Brexiteer, and leader of the party’s European Research Group, Mr Ahern described Jacob Rees Mogg as a "lovely fella when he’s asleep"”

Ireland’s former taoiseach Bertie Ahern being unusually frank when talking about Brexiteers last week. Asked what he meant Ahern was even more blunt   "When he’s awake, he definitely is a strange fish I tell you, in and out of the water."

"And regards to the fact that lot of these guys went to Oxford, Cambridge and Eton, they’re not very bright. This is the problem."

With such personalised rancour coming out it in public, you’d have to wonder - and fear - what is being said in private discussions.
