TORY MPs were chased, booed and pelted with abuse as they tried to enter the party conference in Birmingham last night.
Party chiefs were fuming as politicians were wrongly directed through crowds of waiting protestors who yelled “Tory Scum!” at them on their way into their annual bash.
One tried to launch herself at him and shouted abuse and tried to blow a horn in his face.
Speaking to Sky News while being escorted through the crowd by police officers, Mr Rees-Mogg defended the right of protestors to voice their opposition, shrugging it off.
He said: “There have been protests at Tory conferences since time immemorial, it’s nothing new.
“It’s a fact of democracy. They’re shouting but it’s perfectly peaceful.”
West Midlands Police were unavailable for comment last night.
