Jacob Rees-Mogg Self-Isolating

Jacob Rees-Mogg is self-isolating after one of his children displayed signs of COVID 19.

The child is understood to be awaiting results of a coronavirus test.

However, the Tory Commons Leader was scheduled to appear for the weekly Business Questions session in the House this morning, but instead, Deputy Chief Whip Stuart Andrew arrived in his place and explained that Jacob Rees-Mogg was in quarantine with his family.

He stated that a member of the Leader of the House’s household was awaiting a COVID test result after having been symptomatic and that the Leader was, therefore, self-isolating with his family, so he had the good fortune to be invited to respond.

Jacob Rees-Mogg wrote on Twitter: “Many thanks to Stuart Andrew for standing in for me at business questions.

“One of my children was tested for Covid-19 last weekend after displaying symptoms.

“In accordance with Government guidance, the household has been in self-isolation while we await the test result.”

Labour’s Shadow Commons Leader Valerie Vaz said that they all wished the Leader of the House and the entire Rees-Mog family well, and they knew that it had to be something very serious for him not to be there.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, who’s been MP North East Somerset, has been married to Helena De Chair since 2007.

The couple have six children, Peter, Mary, Thomas, Anselm, Alfred and Sixtus. They also have a nanny, Veronica Crook, who has worked and lived with the family for more than 50 years, and looked after Jacob Rees-Mogg when he was a child.

SNP Commons leader Tommy Sheppard quipped that he would miss being patronised in the flesh by Jacob Rees-Mogg and the MP for Edinburgh East has contributed remotely to proceedings on several occasions during the coronavirus pandemic.

Mr Sheppard told the Commons: “Can I also wish the Leader of the House and his family well. I can hardly hide my disappointment at his absence.

“After five long months of my own absence from this chamber, and sometimes problematic communication through the virtual proceedings, I have been looking forward to being patronised in the flesh rather than over the internet.”

However, will we even notice that Jacob Rees-Mogg is isolating? Has anyone actually seen him in recent months? And how many of the Tory party have been missing in action recently?

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
