Jacob Rees-Mogg is hardly the most popular MP in Westminster and you can almost guarantee that any time he tweets something he will get a barrage of backlash.

You would think, that considering it is Christmas that people might lay off him. Yet some old habits die hard and people were more than keen to let Rees-Mogg know what they thought of him after he posted a tweet about Jesus.

At the literal stroke of midnight, Rees-Mogg posted a tweet reading:

Today a Saviour has been born to us. He is Christ the Lord.

In terms of things that Rees-Mogg has said and done this year this is probably one of the more inoffensive things going and is in line with the nineteenth-century phrases, that he likes to churn out.

However, when people really started to think about it, they decided that someone like Rees-Mogg might not have been a big fan of Jesus if he was still around today and vice versa.

Needless to say, people weren't in favour of spreading the Christmas tweet in the direction of the renowned Brexiteer.

At least one person wished him a Merry Christmas. Oh, wait...
