Jacob Rees-Mogg’s been tweeting in Latin and these 19 takedowns are simply splendidus

Leading Brexiter, Jacob Rees-Mogg, is not known for having the common touch. Indeed, he is often referred to as “the Honorable Member for the 17th century”, which tells you all you need to know about his attitudes. If the 17th century seems a long time ago, we have to wonder which century he was living in when he made this comment last year – the 4th, perhaps.

This smattering of unnecessary Latin translates as “Times are changed; we, too, are changed within them.” or, to paraphrase, “You lost; get over it.”

Both at the time of tweeting and since then, the comment has triggered a wealth of reactions, mostly in a strong spirit of mockery. These 19 are particularly enjoyable.
