MP Michael Fabricant is being interviewed during a meal.

His comments to the waitress.

"I'll have garlic. I'm not sleeping with anyone tonight... unless I get lucky with you"

"Do you want me to open that? I'm big and butch"

Not sexist. Just an idiot.

Cringeworthy... but not sexist.

That twat with the hair?!

He's surely lots of things, but not big and butch.

Doesn't sound sexist just embarrassing.

Not sexist? Would he have sexually harrassed a male waiter or told him he'd open something for him as he was "big and butch"?

Completely sexist. The man's an idiot.

I think his comments are intended to be 'humorous' on the grounds he is gay and not butch at all. I think he is pretty open about his sexuality, he is in a long term relationship with someone v senior at Waitrose.

I followed him on twitter for a while because he's something if a 'character' but gave up as there were too many puerile jokes

What a catch hmm

Didn't he joke before that he was the butch face of the Conservative party. I don't think he was being serious.

Just........ yuck. He must think he's bloody hilarious hmm

He was on HIGNFY a few weeks ago and was such an oddity that Paul Merton asked him only half-jokingly if he was actually a real person and not some ghastly character!

He's my Gran's MP - she said at tea the other day 'Well you can imagine what we call him...' grin
