Jacob Rees-Mogg: UK must not be EU 'colony' after Brexit

A leading Brexiteer has said the UK cannot become a "colony" of the EU during the two year transition period after Britain's withdrawal in 2019.

EU leaders have agreed Brexit talks can move on, with the UK staying in the customs union, single market and under the European Court of Justice's jurisdiction during the transition.

Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg said that would be unacceptable.
