Jacob Rees-Mogg famously urged the prime minister to act like a tiger, rather than Bagpuss, during the most recent Tory rebellion over Europe.

The Tory MP's speech, which evoked both the children's TV character and Shakespeare's Henry V landed him a slot on Newsnight and a publicity visit to a bagpuss pop-up shop... Pictures of which have now surfaced.

So take a look at the North East Somerset MP and remember: "Stiffen your sinews, summon up the blood imitate the action of a tiger. For that is how you should behave to our European partners, not like Bagpuss."
