Jacob Rees-Mogg has said that the large number of trees lying on their sides after having been upright the previous day has nothing to do with Storm Eunice. "Many benefits will flow from Eunice", said Mr Rees-Mogg, "and businesses should embrace the opportunities. Only this morning, I met a shopkeeper whose shop window now is mysteriously missing. I was able to explain that this will allow more customers to enter the shop. When I asked if that explained all the empty shelves, he gave me a rather unpleasant stare which I took for gratitude."
