People want to know where Jacob Rees-Mogg has gone following his 'monstrous' Grenfell comments

Last week, the Tory PPC made headlines after making 'monstrous' claims that the victims of the 2017 tragedy lacked 'common sense', a statement which also landed other Tories in trouble.

Rees-Mogg did later apologise for what he said but in the days since, his presence on the campaign trail has been noticeable quiet, especially for an MP who relishes being on TV.
