There is a resemblance...

Beano sends cease-and-desist letter to Jacob Rees-Mogg asking him to stop masquerading as one of their characters

Beano has asked Jacob Rees-Mogg – who is often jokingly referred to as a walking, talking caricature of poshness – to stop masquerading as one of its cartoon characters.

The children’s comic alleged that the politician and their character Walter Brown are more alike than coincidence allows for, and accused the MP of "copyright infringement" on Twitter.

Walter Brown, the infamous enemy of Dennis the Menace, is known for taking a briefcase to school to make him feel grown-up, an uncanny ability to take the fun out of everything and regularly declaring "fun is for failures!"

The letter is not pleasant reading for the prominent Eurosceptic backbencher, referring to his "bullish behaviour", "snootiness" and "enjoyment of classical music (because he thinks it makes him seem clever)".
