Tory MP Michael Fabricant slammed for tweeting he would "punch Yasmin Alibhai-Brown in the throat"

Fabricant’s tweets came in response to Alibhai-Brown’s heated debate with Spectator columnist Rod Liddle over race, religion and British values.

In the end, Fabricant bowed down to pressure from Twitter and apologised to Alibhai-Brown.
