A shocking video has emerged of the moment Jacob Rees-Mogg and his children were ambushed by a frustrated man outside his home. The protester tried to embarrass Mr Mogg and his family by asking the nanny the amount she was paid, the Nanny’s responded brilliantly. Things then got a bit sour, when the man then said to Jacob’s children that their father was a ‘horrible person’.
The man protesting Mr Mogg said: “Your daddy’s a totally horrible person. Lots of people don’t like your daddy. Do you know that?”. The Police seemed to look on and not try and intervene to stop the barrage of abused aimed at Jacob, his children and his wife. Many on social media called the man protesting a ‘low life’ and highlighted the ‘disgusting nature of the conversations’.
Speaking on LBC radio later on Wednesday, Jacob Rees-Mogg played down the barrage of abuse, and insisted his children were “absolutely fine”. He added: “I wouldn’t get too excited about it. It was a few anarchists who turned up and it wasn’t very well organised. It wasn’t terribly serious. We are a free country. They weren’t violent. They aren’t admirers of mine.”
