The Tory MP said England's World Cup win showed we don't need Europe.

Cricket fanatic and staunch Tory Brexiteer, Jacob Rees-Mogg, told Love Sport Radio that 'snowflake' Remainers 'have no sense of humour' after his tweet about England's World Cup victory enraged people online.

Rees-Mogg was on the Love Sport Breakfast Show this morning with Patrick Christys and Richard Lee, chatting about Eoin Morgan and Co's sensational win over New Zealand.

England won after a 'Super Over' and claimed their first ever World Cup and The Moggster tweeted saying: 

It prompted a furious backlash from pro-EU Twitter users, not least former spin doctor to Tony Blair, Alastair Campbell.

Here's a clip of Jacob Rees-Mogg on the Breakfast show this morning, hitting back by calling the Europhiles humourless.

He said: "It upsets the snowflakes. It was just a little joke and I'm afraid Remoaners don't like having their legs pulled. It shows that we can do things for ourselves and we've done it absolutely magnificently. 

"It was a leg pull for Remoaners and they have no sense of humour, I'm afraid."
