It's safe to say that Jacob Rees-Mogg isn't keen on the Prime Minister's Chequers plan. But Rees-Mogg has still stopped short of calling for Theresa May to go.  Some other Brexit supporters don't agree and think it is time for Tory Brexiteers to call an end to May's time in office. One such activist made their feelings knows at a 'Leave means Leave' rally on the fringes of Tory conference this evening:

Rees-Mogg: 'This is exactly what the Prime Minister said she would not do at Lancaster House.'

Heckler: 'Sack the woman!'

RM: 'No, no.'

Heckler: 'Sack her now – get your letter in.'

RM: 'Certainly not! But thank you – I always like a bit of robust heckling, it is very British.'

Mr S is sure that the Prime Minister is grateful for Rees-Mogg's support...
