"I'm Not A Fish Thrower": Jacob Rees-Mogg Denies Thames Trawler Stunt

Reports had claimed the Tory MP would embark on the stunt in a weird protest over Brexit.

"The only thing that makes it acceptable is the hope that it is leading to a proper Brexit at the end of 2020".

Thus, the only logical way to highlight this injustice, is to, throw...dead...fish...into the thames? Yep.

The MP was responding to a story in the Daily Telegraph, which said "Jacob Rees-Mogg, leader of a 60-strong group of Eurosceptic Conservative MPs, and others are due to board a boat and pass by Parliament throwing fish into the Thames in protest at the alleged "sellout".

Rees-Mogg told LBC the Brexit transition period, when the United Kingdom will will have to abide by European Union rules, was simply "purgatory before we get into heaven".

'I think this has got slightly out of hand.

He told BBC Newsnight: "I make no bones about it, I think this transition agreement is a very unsatisfactory agreement - not just on fish".

"But I won't be throwing fish". I would feel out of plaice throwing fish and would doubtless flounder'. Fishing For Leave, a group of fishermen who believe the European Union hindered their business, are organising a stunt to register their disapproval.

The deal made yesterday ensures that Britain's waters remain eligible to be fished by the European Union until 2020, something which apparently leaves United Kingdom fishermen at a disadvantage.

'The EU has every incentive to wipe us out in 21 months and they will be ruthless enough to do it.
