Jacob Rees-Mogg sang a song about the Brexit bill and people are not impressed

Parliament TV/ Twitter

The House of Commons has seen some sights over the past few years but what happened on Thursday afternoon is likely to shake its very foundations.

That's right, Tory Brexiteer and leader of the House, Jacob Rees-Mogg has coined a little poem about the government's failure to pass a Brexit bill and it's a pretty depressing state of affairs.

Making reference to Sir Percy Blakeney, the fictional character who posed as The Scarlet Pimpernel in the French Revolution and the song associated with him i.e: 'They seek him here, they seek him there.'

Reciting his new and improved version of the poem, Rees-Mogg said:

I think the answer lies with Sir Percy Blakeney:

They seek it here, they seek it there, those parliamentarians seek it everywhere.

Is it in heaven? Or is it in hell? That damned elusive Brexit bill.

While Rees-Mogg's little ditty might have got a chuckle out of his fellow MPs those online weren't too impressed.
