"I think we are facing a really important point in our constitution because there are people who are trying very hard to stop Brexit … So they are going to do everything that they can, not to delay Brexit, not to get a deal but to keep us bound to the European Union. And that is what the Yvette Cooper bill is about, it's what the ‘losers' vote’ is about, it is in relation to stopping us leaving", Rees-Mogg said on Wednesday, addressing a meeting of the eurosceptic Bruges Group think tank.
According to Rees-Mogg, pro-EU lawmakers are now attempting to "frighten" the populace into abandoning the entire Brexit process, while people expect that the results of the 2016 referendum "to be respected and not thwarted."
"I think they [pro-EU lawmakers] recognise the weight of public opinion to push through those acts was so great that they could not defy the will of the British people and now, as we get to sixty-five days to go, they are trying to frighten us into submission and they are trying to thwart what they themselves voted for. And this would be a constitutional outrage", he argued.
The lawmaker went on further, suggesting that the parliament might be prorogued to stop what he says "unconstitutional" bill from passing through the legislature, and citing a historical precedent when the king had to interfere and dissolve the parliament.
The statements come as the United Kingdom remains locked in an ongoing political crisis following last week’s heavy defeat of Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal in parliament.
Although the government survived a vote of no-confidence the following evening, time is running out for it to come up with a plan B that would gain parliamentary approval and help avoid a no-deal Brexit.
