Sometimes subtle is the most savage, as these people appear to agree.

The word “moderately” makes this whole sentence, I think https://t.co/DLaGLC7TDQ

The most impressive thing about your tweet, M’Lud, is that the Mogg’s vanity is much less likely to be offended by your suggestion that his Brexit posturing is absurd than the hint that he buys his strange Bertie Wooster suits in Primark

A ‘moderately well cut suit.’ Ouch.

"moderately well cut suit" – how one very posh person publicly humiliates another. https://t.co/0aiPnvwCEO

it's the "moderately well cut suit" remark that is going to sting the most. https://t.co/AjWcPIY4U5

His suits are terribly badly cut. I've never understood this because he can afford a descent tailor.

‘Moderately’! In my tailoring days I would have pinched the side seams in an inch and discreetly observed that double breasted jackets draw undue attention to puny shoulders. https://t.co/PQgJPCEz7i

Can’t imagine what he can possibly be talking about.
Jacob Rees Mogg is what The Slender Man would look like if he’d been breast-fed by a wet nurse until the age of 15. pic.twitter.com/OPo8VWALeW
