At about 51 / 52 mins.

Michael Fabricant MP is having a meal and being interviewed. Listen to the way he treats the waitress and then offers to open the wine for her.

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

"Shall I open that for you? I'm big and butch"

From what you've quoted Yes. And not a little creepy too!

"I'm not salacious 90% of the time"

If someone in his position was racist 10% of the time, would they think that was something to boast about?
