Brexit: Jacob Rees-Mogg's ERG held a press conference and everyone made the same joke

Last week was probably one of the most tumultuous seven days in the history of Westminister as Theresa May's Brexit deal was torn to shreds by MPs.

With her cabinet in shambles and a number of her fellow Tories issuing a vote of no-confidence against the PM, it's safe to say that things aren't looking good.

To further show that they really mean business, the members of the pro-Brexit European Research Group, led by Jacob Rees-Mogg held a press conference on Tuesday to launch their latest research paper on the customs union.

Alongside Rees-Mogg were the likes of former Brexit secretary David Davis, Tory peer Peter Lilley and Labour Leave co-founder John Mills, who all vowed to drum up the support they need to overthrow May.

Unfortunately for Rees-Mogg, his little rebellion isn't quite going to plan and the ERG's display on Tuesday was mocked even further Twitter, where they were lambasted for being out of touch and their lack of diversity.

Once images of the event went viral, the jokes started raining in and they were hilarious.

All was all a bit embarrassing for Rees-Mogg and co.

Good luck getting all those votes guys.
