News Release

4th February 2009

1000 FACEBOOK FRIENDS

As of today, Michael Fabricant now has 1,000 Facebook Friends and says "This is a landmark! Most are from Lichfield and the surrounding area though I suspect a few are London journalists and Labour Party apparatchiks monitoring the site. I still have a little way to go though to catch up with Obama - apparently he has over 200,000 Facebook friends.

"But my Facebook page came into its own recently following the tragic murder of Michael Eccles with his friends posting notes on my pages. The transfer of information gave comfort to many.

"Facebook is a good and informal way of keeping in touch with many of my constituents and it's great to go into a pub or somewhere and hear someone say: 'Hey, I'm your friend on Facebook'.

"But before people think I'm a saddo, I do want to add I have 'regular' friends too", Michael jokes.
