Hello. It's August 2018 and not only is Brexit still a thing, it's actually looking worse and worse as the days go by.

As Theresa May goes dancing around Africa trying to boost post-Brexit trade deals, at home her Conservative colleagues are still trying to promote the idea that Brexit is exactly what the British people want.

The latest instalment of adhering to that finest of British values comes courtesy of a man who does a great job of subscribing to that modus operandi, Jacob Rees-Mogg.

In a tweet posted by the Tory MP on Tuesday evening, he said that "Trust in politics will evaporate if Brexit were not delivered," while sharing an article by Priti Patel titled: "We must chuck Chequers, or disillusioned voters will reject mainstream politics."

We hate to tell you this Jacob, but it's possible that a lot of trust in British politics might have already evaporated with Brexit or no Brexit.

Thankfully, there were a lot of people on Twitter who were more than happy to point this out to him.

In 2018, what does 'trust' mean, anyway?

Some took exception to his unusual grammar.

Oh, and let's not forget this juicy fact too.

Here at The Independent, we believe that the British public deserves a final say on the Brexit deal. If you agree please sign our petition here.
