Fabricant in a haze.

Meanwhile in Washington

Tory MP and Twitter star Michael Fabricant has found himself at the center of a huge row after a tweet comparing the latest police arrests in the Jimmy Saville sex abuse investigation to smoking cannabis.

Fabricant is reported to have tweeted: "Max Clifford arrested for sexual offences. Stuart Hall last night. How many more face arrest?"

"Imagine if the police started arresting everyone whoever smoked a joint at uni back in the 60s and 70s. (Time to move to Argentina!)"

Fabricant has been bathing in a tide of Twitter popularity recently and now has over 8,000 followers.

It would seem our dear-ol' wise Prime Minister was probably right when he prophesied that - "Too many tweets might make a twat" [WATCH].
