What did Jacob Rees-Mogg say about Tory MPs not needing masks, again?
Jacob Rees-Mogg says Tory MPs don't need to wear a mask, in the Chamber, because they all know each other. 🤦 pic.twitter.com/Zi5KQw0hgd

Ah yes, that’s right: they didn’t need to wear masks because they all know each other.
And now Rees-Mogg’s colleague Alex Chalk – after displaying the “convivial, fraternal spirit” that the Leader of the House so eloquently promoted – is self-isolating, having tested positive for Covid-19:
But he can't have caught it from, or passed it to, any of the other people in the photo because they "all know each other".
(Only a matter of time, wasn't it.)

The question now is: how many other Tory MPs have picked up the virus as a result of their “convivial, fraternal” masklessness at Prime Minister’s Questions last Wednesday (October 20)?
Indeed, considering the information in the tweets below, how many have even bothered to take a test?
The double-jabbed among close contacts of a confirmed covid case are not required to self-isolate.
Waiting for the logic behind that one.

Here are a few facts that are more accurate than Rees-Mogg’s dangerous claims – and these come from a doctor:
It’s a tough field but the government’s advice that wearing a mask depends on “whether you know the people or not” must be the stupidest thing they’ve ever said. COVID doesn’t care if you’re with a stranger or your Great Aunt Sal. It’s a virus, not Facebook.

TV news interviewers take note: if you’re set to interview a Conservative MP who was in the Commons on that day (or maskless at any time before or after) then you will be at risk. Wear a mask yourself and demand strict social distancing.
That goes for anybody else who is likely to come into contact with a Conservative MP.
They may be happy to take moronic risks but that doesn’t mean you have to.
