Jacob Rees-Mogg has said he “feels sorry” for David Lammy, who compared hardline Brexiteer Tories to Nazis

The Brexiteer lashed back after David Lammy went on The Andrew Marr Show yesterday to defend his previously-mentioned stance that the European Research Group (ERG) could be compared to the Nazi Party and South African racists.

When Marr challenged Lammy over his comments during the interview, the Labour politician said those comparisons were actually “not strong enough”, adding:

In 1938 there were allies who hatched a plan for Hitler to annex part of Czechoslovakia, and Churchill said no, and he stood alone.

We must not appease. We’re in a situation now, and let me just be clear, I’m an ethnic minority.

We have, in the ERG, in Jacob Rees-Mogg, someone who is happy to put on to his web pages the horrible, racist AfD party, a party that’s Islamophobic and on the far right.

Lammy was referring to a controversial tweet by Rees-Mogg posted earlier this month, in which he put up a video an AfD politician making a speech about the EU’s Brexit negotiating strategy.

Taking to Twitter to respond to Lammy’s television apperance yesterday, Rees-Mogg said:
