The Conservative MP for Lichfield said today that he might end up “punching [female journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown] in her throat.”
Michael Fabricant’s message, posted on Twitter, comes following the Daily Mail columnist’s appearance on Channel 4 News on Thursday evening, in which Alibhai-Brown appeared alongside associate editor of the Spectator.
The two had a discussion about British values and Alibhai-Brown freely expressed her opinions on Liddle. Initially Alibhai-Brown said Liddle tried to be “reasonable and not to be bigoted but the bigotry just bursts out of him”.
She then followed up with a more damning conclusion on Liddle, saying: “I’m clearly honest that I loathe you. I have no words to express how much I loathe you.
“And in that I feel quite proud that I’m able to tell you that and we don’t kill each other.”
