French innit? and nearly Spanish too

Mogg might say (after looking it up in his "how to impress the proles* guide for dummies") " Quid erit."

 

* not a description I like but I bet he does.....

It’s not grammatically correct in any of French, Italian or Spanish, seems to come from doggerel versions on English C16 heraldic crests or Kit Marlowe’s 1590 Doctor Faustus. It appears to have ended up in The Man Who Knew Too Much via a mention in Barefoot Contessa

My learned friend as ever makes a valid point or even points most forcibly.

However, Mine own submission and indeed inspiration relates to the alleged motto of the Bedfords aka Dukes of Bedford of Woburn Abbey.

My source is a humble souvenir  consisting of a model stag's head in plastic mounted on a wooden shield signed by an earlier but now deceased Duke of Bedford in his own hand along with the words "Que Sera Sera""..ie the family motto. It is written in the latter format.

One is inclined to think that Jacob Rees Mogg would incline to the motto Que Sera Sera as signed by a Duke of Bedford, he (JRM) being of the 18th Century and inclined to favour or at least flatter the aristocracy. 

On the other hand if one visits Woburn Abbey one can see the motto in variations "Che Sara Sara" and "Ke Sera Sera" mounted and inscribed in various locations including a mausoleum...

The Duke of Bedford who first opened up Woburn Abbey to the public often quoted the motto "Que Sera Sera" hastily adding that he did not own the rights to the song.

I merely drew my inspiration such as it be from these sources...

Hmmm. British Steel now requests £100M loan from UK Govt to carry it over difficulties caused by Brexit, freezing it out of a EU carbon tax arrangement.

Wonder if the money will get paid back?
