MP Takes Jar Of Coffee Mate On Hiking Holiday In Colombia


Ah, Colombia, Land of the White Powder known as Cocaine. So what does Tory MP for Lichfield Michael Fabricant (is that a wig?) carry in a jar in his rucksack. Coffe Mate. Imagine the fun and merriment that ensued when his hiking party met the Colombian Army. BBC Midlands Today reported the story. "It's Coffee Mate" "I not your mate, senor. Sargento get the rubber gloves."

The worrying thing is, if this amiable cove doesn't appreciate that carrying white powder in Clombia is suspicious, what is he prepared to vote for?

It must be a wig.

Perhaps he should eat it - it could be candy floss.

I too have taken coffee mate away on holiday in the past....just how sad does that make me?...oh the shame.

Taking Coffee Mate to Colombia is in a premier league of naivety - like Tony Blair saying "Trust Me". Or Dave Cameron not bothing to check his bike's brakes.

Made me smile :-) and it certainly looks like a wig!

The name Fabricant suggests a robot. Do androids dream of electric sheep?
