The leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has attended a 'funeral' for Brexit at the Conservative party conference in Birmingham.
The stunt - organised by anti-Brexit group Our Future, Our Choice - was designed to symbolise that the political thinking behind Brexit had now died.
It included a hearse and coffin, pallbearers, a gravestone, and an even a euology.
The group were surprised to have in attendance one of the architects of Brexit, and said it was the 'cherry on the cake' for their stunt.
Our Future Our Choice spokesperson Cathleen Clarke, who delivered the eulogy, said: 'I laid Brexit to rest. Little did I know that one of this project's forefathers would be stopping by to see the funeral rites of his political progeny.'

'Credit to Jacob Rees-Mogg - he did the decent thing. It was nice of him to stop by as his brainchild, Brexit, passed on into the political afterlife.'

'As one of the leaders of this botched project it was only right that he should be there at the end to see Brexit off. Now it is only a matter of time before Jacob, like the majority of the British public, realises that the time is right for a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal.'
