Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg has become the latest Brexiteer to be targeted by Remain activists after an incident in London yesterday evening.
Rees-Mogg is understood to have been leaving an event at the Friends’ Meeting House when he was harassed by a group with a megaphone as he approached his car.
One is heard saying: “In you go, you horrible little man. And take your fascism with you.”
A second individual then proceeds to throw what appears to be a bottle of water over Rees-Mogg as he enters the vehicle, much to the delight of those filming the incident who are heard cheering.

Says something about the man that he keeps smiling throughout. Yet again the sore losers turn to violence. Sad!

The activist then shouts: “Have a drink of water. It’s European water.”
Rees-Mogg appears to have taken it in his stride and is seen to be smiling defiantly throughout the incident.
In a comment for the MailOnline, Rees-Mogg said in jest: “It is not easy to turn me into a Tory wet.”
The incident is the latest in a number of attempts to intimidate and embarrass pro-Brexit politicians after Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage had a milkshake thrown at him during a campaign visit to Newcastle last week. It would appear Remainers are running out of arguments…
