Jacob Rees-Mogg mocks those at Oxford who support the removal of the Queen’s portrait and Rhodes’ statue

In the attached link, there is a short speech given by Jacob Rees-Mogg at the British Parliament. In the past days, there was a controversy in the UK concerning Oxford University. In one of the colleges, an American student removed the portrait of queen Elizabeth II. Rees-Mogg rightly asks whether the Americans would tolerate a non-American removing their flag from one of the American Universities. He also asks those who want to remove all the tangible evidence in Oxford of Cecil Rhodes’ generosity, whether they are also ready to give all the wealth that Rhodes bequeathed to Oxford to his heirs and descendants.
