Jacob Rees-Mogg's latest campaign video might be his strangest yet

Jacob Rees-Mogg's latest campaign video might be his strangest yet

Jacob Rees–​Mogg's presence on the general election campaign trail has been sorely missed, following his heavily criticised comments on the Grenfell fire victims.

The Tory minister has barely been seen anywhere but does occasionally pop up on social media, with some sort of pro-Brexit message for the masses.

On Monday evening he reappeared again to tell a strange old story, that literally only he could tell.

Standing in a desolate field, occupied by only himself and the stones of Stanton Drew in Somerset (more on that later) he said:

Adge Cutler sang the famous song: 'When the Common Market comes to Stanton Drew.' 

I'm here by the standing stones in Stanton Drew, thought to be 4,500 years old, some of the most important stones in this country. 

And I want to get the Common Market out of Stanton Drew.

We must get Brexit done. Only the Conservatives can do that - a majority Conservative Government can get out of the European Union and make Brexit happen by 31st January.

Please vote Conservative and get the Common Mark out of Stanton Drew. 

As you can imagine, people were very confused about what he was going on about and why he was standing next to some 'important stones.'

To give him the benefit of the doubt, Rees-Mogg is referring to a song called 'When the Common Market comes to Stanton Drew' by The Wurzels, which was a surprisingly pro-Brexit song that was released way back in 1967.

Clearly The Wurzels were ahead of their time and (if you can bear it) you can listen to the song below.
