Cheshire West MP Graham Evans slammed for air guitar in Parliament

NORTHWICH’S MP is no doubt fretting after making national headlines for apparently playing air guitar during a Commons debate about 11,000 army job cuts.

Graham Evans, MP for Weaver Vale, was sat behind Defence Secretary Liam Fox in the House of Commons during the debate, which meant his every move was caught on camera.

This has struck a discordant note among fellow MPs, with Shadow Defence Minister Michael Dugher condemning his behaviour. The debate took place on Wednesday, March 4, with the footage quickly posted on the internet.

Jokers have even put music to it on YouTube and the footage had already had more than 39,800 views. (UPDATE: Now over 79,500 views)

My comment: Is this indicative of all elected representatives in this area? He was a Cheshire Councillor before becoming an MP at the last election! Watch the You Tube Video here.
