Readers react to the latest announcement from Jacob Rees-Mogg and the ERG.
May it comfort readers to be reminded that a ERG is an obsolete unit of work in the metric system?
An ERG of work is done when a force of one dyne moves its point of application through one centimetre. It is a very small quantity.

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?
