Tory deputy chairman ‘compares sex offences to smoking a joint’

Apparently in reference to the police investigation in the wake of the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal, Tory deputy chairman Michael Fabricant tweeted:

“Imagine if the police started arresting everyone whoever [sic] smoked a joint at uni back in the 60s and 70s. (Time to move to Argentina!)”

The missive followed on from a message regarding the arrests of Max Clifford and Stuart Hall on suspicion of sexual offences. While he attempted to delete the offending tweet, the PoliticsHome team have grabbed a copy from their PhiWire.

Doubtless Fabricant will follow Ken Clarke’s lead and “clarify” his remarks.

Tory MP kills Bob Dylan

Blonde bombshell and Conservative MP for Lichfield Michael Fabricant took to the mic at a local festival in his constituency recently. Scrapbook apologises in advance for possibly the worst rendition of Bob Dylan’s “The Times Are a Changing” of all time:

No stranger to creative endeavours, Fabricant was formerly an adviser to the BBC for their acclaimed political drama series House of Cards, in which he appears in a cameo role as a fictional member of parliament.

Perhaps he should stick to acting.
