A second referendum; Passport checks between Britain and Ireland; A Norway-style relationship with the European Union. These are all options floated in a four-year-old document which leading Brexit-backer Jacob Rees-Mogg cited on Friday as the basis of his plans for leaving the EU.

The Conservative member of Parliament and chairman of the anti-EU European Research Group used an article in the Sun newspaper to hit back at European Council President Donald Tusk, who said this week there’s a “special place in hell” for Britain’s Brexit campaigners.
