All is not well within the Tory Party. Not only are the party facing a historic split over their numerous factional disputes around Brexit, two of their MPs have just been caught openly mocking a Tory colleague behind his back during today’s Prime Minister’s Questions.

Kelly Tolhurst, the Tory MP for Rochester and Strood, and Huw Merriman, the Tory member for Bexhill and Battle, appeared to repeatedly poke fun at their colleague Michael Fabricant, over his exuberant blonde locks, during his question to the Prime Minister.

Merriman repeatedly points to the back of Fabricant’s head before appearing to exclaim “it’s definitely a wig!”.

Merriman then goes on to repeat his assertion, mouthing the words “it’s a wig” again.

The Tory MPs’ extraordinary behaviour has already been labelled “puerile and childish” on social media, with others calling on them to make a public apology.

Responding to the incident, Fabricant branded Merriman as “short sighted“, stating on Twitter:

“It’s Huw Merriman MP. I realise no-one knows him. A newish member, a little short sighted, and who doesn’t yet realise that PMQs are televised, bless. I know people are annoyed about his antics, they have been calling my office, but he’ll eventually learn how to behave. Sweet.”

You can watch the astonishingly blatant behaviour below:

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
