What a fucking idiot. Wonder why he is talking about it as if it's something commonplace?

Prime Minister David Cameron was challenged to make the MP apologise – or sack him as a vice chairman of the Conservative Party.

Blundering Tory Michael Fabricant has sparked outrage after comparing sex crimes with smoking cannabis in a sick tweet after the latest arrests.

Prime Minister David Cameron was last night challenged to make the MP apologise – or sack him as a vice chairman of the Conservative Party.

On Thursday, Mr ­Fabricant tweeted: “Max Clifford arrested for sexual offences. Stuart Hall last night. How many more face arrest?”

He then said: “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!)”

Mr Fabricant swiftly deleted the message and later added: “The rape of a child, for that is precisely what paedophilia is, is unforgiveable. ”

The Lichfield MP, who caused a row when he said some Tories were “closet racists”, refused to discuss his new blunder yesterday, saying: “I’m not commenting.”

The row comes after the PM accepted more cash from a wealthy donor, Bill Ives, after the steel tycoon was arrested and cautioned for stalking his ex-wife.

Labour’s Sheila Gilmore, MP for Edinburgh East, said Mr Fabricant’s latest remarks were “completely unacceptable”.

She added: “He needs to go further and apologise publicly, and David Cameron must condemn these outrageous comments.”
