Controversial remain supporting MP Anna Soubry has previously provoked fury after she accused Nigel Farage of looking like he had a “finger up his bottom”.
Mr Farage responded to the heinous attack by saying:
“This latest, remarkable foul mouthed attack is utterly incredulous.
“Soubry has stooped to the levels of crudity that any politician would spend a life time apologising for.
“This is supposed to be a professional woman representing her political party on a national television programme on a Sunday morning.
“Well I am astonished, and I would imagine the rest of her party is too, as well as deeply embarrassed.”
Ms Soubry made the remark on the BBC’s flagship Andrew Marr show after watching comedian Rory Bremner impersonate David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Mr Farage.
The Defence Minister Soubry at the time replied and at the same time mimicked the obscene gesture: “I always think he looks like somebody has put their finger up his bottom and he really rather likes it”.
“Are you allowed to say that?” asked Rory Bremner.
“It’s too late,” replied host Marr. While Lord Mandelson, who put a restraining hand on her arm, responded: “Anna, please, It’s too early!”
“Sorry, but he does worry me,” Soubry added.
While there were nervous laughs on the sofa as Marr closed the show, Mr Farage was not amused.
Afterwards Mr Farage went on Twitter to tweet: “Perhaps @annasoubrymp should spend less time investigating digital rectal insertion and more on her brief.”
Mr Farage added: “She is rude and incompetent.
“I would expect an apology – but I won’t be holding my breath”.
Soubry did later say sorry for the remarks, which she insisted were meant as a light hearted joke.
She said: “If he is in any way offended, I apologise unreservedly. It was a light hearted remark”
