Rees Mogg’s appalling comments on Grenfell – Sarah Jones responds

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.”

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.”
