Andrew Neil questioned the minister for Brexit Opportunities’ debating skills as the pair clashed during one of the first interviews of the show. Mr Neil debuted his new Sunday show on Channel 4 this week, with Jacob Rees-Mogg featuring as one of the main guests. The pair debated the Tory MP’s new role as well as the announcement of the investigation into Labour leader Keir Starmer’s Durham escapades.
As the pair discussed, Mr Neil hit out at Mr Rees-Mogg’s attempts to debate with him.
The TV host said: “I’m sorry, you don’t get out with cheap debating tricks like that.
“I was brought up in a tougher debating school than you.”
