Reform MP Lee Anderson is mocked for the 'worst full English ever' after he posted picture of his fry-up and pondered how long it would take for someone to call it 'racist'

Reform MP Lee Anderson has been mocked for the 'worst full English ever' after he posted a picture of his fry-up and wondered how long it would take for someone to call it 'racist'.

The Member of Parliament for Ashfield posted an image of his meal from the canteen in Westminster shortly after 9am yesterday.

His picture showed a grey tray with cutlery lying next to a plate consisting of two sausages, fried mushrooms and several pieces of slightly undercooked bacon.

A large fried egg and a hash brown were also on the plate completed by a piece of black pudding which appears to still have the string attached.

Incredibly, the meal doesn't feature baked beans despite them being much-loved around the country.

The canteen appears quite empty with plenty of seats -  however behind the tray sits a sign reading: 'Reserved for members only.'

Following the criticism of his full English breakfast, Anderson posted a picture of his porridge with the caption: 'Porridge today. That fry up was far too opinionated.'

Anderson, who defected to the Reform UK party after having his Conservative whip suspended in March, captioned the post: 'Full English breakfast.

'A great start to the day but how long before some highly educated expert tells us our traditional breakfast is racist?'

The tweet was followed by several emojis including a frying pan, bacon, a mushroom and three Union Jack flags.

His post received over 3,400 likes with thousands of comments from social media users who were quick to criticise the politician's breakfast.

Brendan Clarke-Smith MP commented: 'Outrageous omission of baked beans from that breakfast.'

Another said: 'Who burnt your breakfast?'

A third commented: 'Where's the beans?'

A fourth added: 'One of the worst breakfasts I have ever seen.'

Another said: 'All for 30p! I assume.'

Following the criticism of his full English breakfast, Anderson posted a picture of his porridge with the caption: 'Porridge today. That fry up was far too opinionated.'

In 2022, Anderson came under fire over his claim that there wasn't a 'massive use' for food banks in Britain as he offered 'proof' that meals can be cooked for 30p each.

The politician further suggested that struggling Britons are only using food banks because they 'can't budget' and 'can't cook a meal from scratch'.

He also invited fellow MPs to visit a 'real food bank' in his Nottinghamshire constituency that allowed people to 'make a meal for about 30p'.

Lee Anderson MP is now on his third political party having been a member of the Labour Party between 1983 and 2018 before joining the Conservatives.

His affiliation with the Government lasted just six years before he defected to the Reform Party earlier this year.

A full English was ranked as the fifth most popular British dish in a YouGov poll in the first quarter of this year.

The meal was bested by soup, roast chicken and the most popular meal fish and chips in the poll.
