Michael Fabricant wears BBC lanyard at Conservative conference to fool Momentum protesters

Monday, October 1, 2018

Michael Fabricant has been wearing a BBC lanyard at the Conservative Conference to “disguise” himself from Momentum protesters.

The MP for Lichfield tweeted a picture of himself wearing his pass attached to a BBC lanyard, and wrote: “I’m wearing my BBC laniard [sic] #Conservative #conference2018 so when #Momentum shout the usual “Tory Scum”, I’ll shout back “Nuffink to do wiv me mate, I’m a just fu——g sound engineer”. I’m sure my cunning disguise will work.”

It isn’t the first time Fabricant has tweeted something unorthodox. In 2014, he was sacked as vice-chairman of the Conservative party after tweeting “about time” in relation to Maria Miller’s resignation.

He also joked on Twitter about having relations with a llama, and continued to post about it when the comments were covered in the press.

In 2016, he shouted “oh, b*****ks!” in the House of Commons when former justice minister Jonathan Djangoly said Brexit could cost British law firms £1.7 billion.

He also posted pictures on Twitter of him striking a pose known as 'dabbing' at the conference.
