Brexit rebels including Jacob Rees-Mogg, David Davis and Dominic Raab have been urged to respect the will of Tory MPs and their democratic decision to elect Theresa May as their leader.

With Rees-Mogg currently leading a campaign for a vote of no-confidence in the prime minister, many have asked him why he hates democracy so much.

Conservative backbencher Simon Williams told us, “The MPs have spoken, and their will could not have been clearer. They wanted Theresa May to be the leader of our party, and the country, and that’s the end of it.

“Just because circumstances of might have changed and the decisions that have been taken are not what you thought they would be is no reason to want to do the whole vote all over again.

“I bet he just wants to keep having leadership elections until he gets a result he likes.”

“They should all get behind Theresa and try believing in her a bit more. We need more belief in Theresa, it’s what the people  wanted, and we need to crack on with it.”

Rees-Mogg, “Oh, I see what you’re doing. No, this is very different.

“You see, I’m saying we need a new democratic vote on who should be our leader because she is not delivering what was promised two and half years ago, whereas you want a new democratic people’s vote because Brexit is not delivering what was promised two and a half years ago. The differences could not be starker.”

Theresa May emerged briefly from her office to tell the rebels, “I won, get over it.”
