After claiming Theresa May's Brexit deal was bad, Jacob Rees-Mogg made a surprising u-turn when Boris Johnson managed to rehash a version of the document.
It is little surprise, therefore, that with just days until the UK is due to leave the European Union under such a deal, Brexiteers are scrambling to rewrite history. Or at least on their social media accounts.
Twitter account @deletedbyMPs has noted an increase in a removal of Jacob Rees-Mogg's tweets (and subsequent retweets by fellow Tory MPs) of anything that advocated a no-deal Brexit to prevent leaving on a 'bad deal'.
Such gems to be removed from his Twitter account include: "People did not vote for a deal. They voted to Leave. #CleanBrexit", "releasing ourselves from the failed EU economic project is a real economic boom. #CleanBrexit" and "no deal is still better than a bad deal."
Rees-Mogg has also recently removed tweets surrounding "Project Fear" - notably the "collapse" of it in relation to delays at Calais.

Others criticise the May deal as leaving the UK as a "vassal state", while another which links to a Telegraph story on a no-deal Brexit is captioned: "Another round of Project Fear unmasked".
