Rees Mogg’s appalling comments on Grenfell

On LBC, Jacob Rees Mogg said:

“And I think if either of us were in a fire, whatever the fire brigade said, we would leave the burning building. It just seems the common sense thing to do.”

Sarah Jones MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Minister, responding to Jacob Rees Mogg’s comments on the Grenfell Tower disaster, said “These are appalling comments. Jacob Rees-Mogg should retract them and apologise immediately.

“Statements like this just go to show how out of touch the Tories are and are a glaring admission of their failure to act in the interest of the Grenfell victims and their families.”
