The Conservative MP Sir Christopher Chope was humiliated this afternoon after a member of the public ‘took a photo of his crotch’ shortly after he left the Houses of Parliament.

According to a witness, the camera user walked up to the Member for Christchurch, said ‘phwoaar I’m gonna get me some of that’ and then used his iPhone 6 to get a number of shots of his frontal trouser area before proceeding to upload them to various Instagram accounts with a large following.’

He added, ‘The whole thing was over in a matter of seconds. I remember hearing the MP say, ‘Wow. That was pretty humiliating. Someone should make a law against this kind of thing.’

‘Only a gammonised fossil would oppose some genre of legislation to make such an intrusive act illegal.’

‘I think I will start a campaign against cock snapping.’
