He cannot keep out of the news. A few weeks back one of his canvassers was found to be part of a group of racist, NHS hating Plymouth university students; then yesterday he is reported to be telling the world that if he was not an MP he would not vote Tory and now today he is challenging a musician based in Canada to own up to insinuating his wife was a prostitute in the ‘comments section of the Plymouth Herald’.
I’ll give you one chance at honesty. Did you insinuate my wife was a prostitute on the Plymouth Herald comments section?

Twitter being twitter however it did not end there.

"But you don't ask with respect. You don't offer friendship. You don't even think to call me Godfather. Instead, you come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married, and you ask me to insinuate his wife is a prostitute in the Plymouth Herald comments section" pic.twitter.com/l0tZ05ssVV

The Plymouth Herald cannot believe their luck. Their local MP has brought the attention of the world to their door. Not just any door either. But the door of their comments section. Priceless.
