Jacob Rees-Mogg’s been talking Weetabix, baked beans and ‘nanny’s homemade marmalade’ – only 4 responses you need
You’ll probably remember how Weetabix caused a bit of a kerfuffle earlier this week when it suggested on Twitter that people might like to enjoy the breakfast cereal with baked beans.

It prompted no end of responses and was a very welcome distraction from everything else going on right now.
But not worthy, surely, of a debate in the House of Commons? Think again, after the issue was raised by Conservative MP Philip Hollobone (no, us neither).
And Jacob Rees-Mogg was only too happy to join in, obviously. What larks!

And these are the only four responses you need (the last one’s a bit NSFW, just in case).
Over a hundred thousand people dead, Brexit chaos, unemployment spiralling up and Jacob Rees-Mogg and the aptly named Phllip Hollobone choose to debate weetabix, marmalade and nanny in parliament https://t.co/BwiLwU3txQ

Because it’s normal for a nearly 50 year old man to have a nanny. 🙄

We liked this one too.
They were pretending to be over 50 at the age of 12, and now they're over 50, they're pretending to be six. https://t.co/NexhGTcKII

Not sure if this is related, or just evergreen.
I have no greater wish in this world than for Jacob Rees-Mogg to be left suddenly bankrupt and destitute.
