Jacob Rees-Mogg has described Mark Carney as a 'wailing banshee' and dismissed the prime minister as having a 'Dirty Harry moment'.
If I went about using such language, publicly, to denounce those whose views differed from mine I would be assessed as not being of sound mind. Why is Rees-Mogg given a second of airtime or a centimetre of newspaper space?
