Jacob Rees-Mogg has announced that he is to open a Christmas-themed visitor attraction in London to be named Urchin World. The Grand Opening is due to take place on December 1st in a converted disused factory unit in Hoxton.

For a considerable financial sum, rumoured to be £150 per person and £149.50 for under 10s and OAPs, visitors will be able to walk through a Dickensian style London and see firsthand the squalour and deprivation that was rife at the time.

Mr Rees-Mogg said: ‘This will be a wonderful opportunity for the public to prepare for Christmas 2020 should Conservatives be returned to power with a clear working majority.’

‘Our many tableaus and magic lantern presentations will depict, in high-focus mark you, the contrast between the haves and the have nots. A contrast that will sharpen significantly post-Brexit and once our policies to enhance the lives of the very rich are implemented.’

But Jeremy Corbyn was quick to slam the move as ‘a barefaced exercise in exploitation of the disadvantaged’, after stories emerged that young children are being employed at the attraction to play the part of street urchins on zero hours contracts and for a pittance.

Nevertheless an undeterred Mr Rees-Mogg countered the allegations. ‘Piffle and poppycock, a penny-ha’penny per day is an excellent rate of remuneration, and will see youngsters incentivised to embrace the world of hard work.’
