I wonder if Jacob Rees-Mogg thinks his retraction tweet is enough of an apology?

He might be asking why everyone is making such a fuss.

Mr Rees-Mogg, as everybody must know by now, doubled down on Ben Bradley’s libel of Jeremy Corbyn last month by issuing another false statement on Channel 4 News – claiming that the Labour leader voted against the Good Friday Agreement.

There was a huge adverse reaction, forcing this response from Mr Rees-Mogg:

I have a feeling he thinks that is enough. His “mea culpa” is an admission of fault, as was “I was wrong”.

It seems to me that he simply doesn’t understand that an act of contrition is required.

Once again, for Tories, it seems “sorry” is the hardest word.

Leading Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has refused to apologise to Jeremy Corbyn after falsely accusing the Labour leader of voting against the Good Friday Agreement.

Rees-Mogg made the false claim that Corbyn had voted against the treaty which secured peace in Ireland to millions of TV viewers on … Channel 4 News.
