Yup, even Hilary Benn (without referencing Corbyn by name) said he would back Labour's position on the deal.
As for Labour's non-position on Brexit and the EU in general, silence prevailed.
Not so for Rees-Mogg, slyly sliding the shiv into his leader and party, imitating John Cleese imitating him, with the requisite plummy tone he cartoons so effectively.
The best touch was his wearing what looked like his grand-father's double-breastfed suit, baggily hanging from his scarecrow shoulders and making him look like a boychild playing dress-up.

Sigh, you have to take yer comedy where you find it!
