Lichfield’s MP has shrugged off “vitriol” aimed at him after appearing on Have I Got News For You.
Michael Fabricant appeared alongside Paul Merton and Ian Hislop on the long-running BBC panel show on Friday (May 10).
His appearance sparked much discussion on social media, but the MP himself insisted he wasn’t concerned by any of the criticism sent his way on Twitter.
He told his followers: “Thank you for all the lovely tweets.
“As for the seven hostile tweets, if it makes you happy to tweet vitriol then I’m happy for you to.”
Mr Fabricant insisted he did not regret appearing on the show.
He explained: “My one and only disappointment with the cut of Have I Got News For You was my plugs for Lichfield and LichVegas both got dumped on the cutting room floor.”
