MP John Nicolson has caused Twitter to erupt with jokes as he was snapped pouring "the worst pint ever poured in the history of pint pouring."

The 58-year-old headed to Tennents Lager Caledonian Breweries in Scotland and posted photos of his visit on Twitter on Tuesday, Feb 4.

One image shows the MP in mid-pour, while another captures Nicolson with two of his pints - which have left many of his followers shocked and amused.

Many people have flocked to comment on the MP's pint pouring skills and the 'shocking' amount of froth.

The caption of the photos read: "It was great to welcome my constituent Jay Fraser to parliament earlier today.

"I was delighted to present him with an award for his work as a brewing apprentice at @TennentsLager Caledonian Breweries. Tennent’s cappuccino anyone? Slainte!"

Many people have flocked to comment on the MP's pint pouring skills and the 'shocking' amount of froth.

One user definitely wasn't impressed, and said: "Am late to this, the worst pint ever poured in the history of pint pouring."

Another was clearly shocked by the amount of froth and simply tweeted: "Absolute horror."

"He drinks so much champagne he has forgotten how to pour a pint." A third added.

A fourth joked: "Go and sit on the naughty step and just contemplate what you did there."

One even quipped: "Typical snp - all froth and no substance"

"It’s well seen you’re a wine drinker!" Another replied.

Some people even started to compare the look of the MP's pints to ice cream.

"Maybe get an icecream van instead John." One user said.

Another added: "Do you want a flake with that?"

A further put: "Can I have a flake with mine."

Many others told the MP to not 'give up his day job', nor to take up a position in bar trade.

"This photo makes me happy you're an MP and not a barman." One said. "You can take a bubble bath in that."

"Dont give up the day job John, I dont see a career in the pub industry looking at those pints." Another laughed.

Someone else wrote: "You really need to stick to your day job John, which judging by the photos isn’t in the bar trade."
