An MP has apologised after tweeting that he would "punch" a female journalist "in the throat".
In a series of tweets, the MP said he would never seriously threaten anyone with violence.
Just out of dentist. 1 It appears that some people who don't know me think I actually go round punching "in the throat". Not true.
2. If anyone believes I would seriously threaten someone with violence, I of course withdraw and apologise
3. I am afraid I know I would get v angry if I had been on the Ch4 debate last night. Glad it was Rod Liddle and not me!
