After spending the election campaign in hiding because of shameful comments he made about the Grenfell fire on LBC radio, Jacob Rees-Mogg has briefly re-emerged in a video showing him run from a constituent.
Rees-Mogg was campaigning in Monkton Combe, Somerset where he was videoed by a voter who asked him a question he had no answer for.
Carl Mungai asked the Tory hopeful: "On the Grenfell things, do you feel ashamed?"
Rees-Mogg, who had said the victims of the fire lacked 'common sense' at the beginning of the campaign trail, said: "I'm just here to canvas for the election".
Before Mungai could ask Rees-Mogg any further questions, he says "I'd be delighted to here from you" and begins to run away.

Boris Johnson hinted that he could fire Rees-Mogg for his comments if he is re-elected, but did not go into specifics, telling LBC Radio: "I'm not going to get into measuring up the curtains type conversations".
However, it has been pointed out that the prime minister had already given assurances that Sajid Javid would remain his chancellor.
