"Absolutely and in all seriousness... that's why the government has supported heating bills as far as they can but I'm not trying to disguise it is going to be a very very tricker winter and that's why the government needs to go for growth so we do grow the pie so we can have some bigger slices for the most vulnerable," Evans, who may end up in the House of Lords, replied, as Labour councillor Oliver Ryan appeared to face palm.
Ryan then said: "People are currently choosing between heating and eating in a lot of circumstances."
He added that the government "had burdened" future generations with debt.
"To trivialise it in the way that you have," he added, addressing Evans "is not quite grasping the seriousness of where people find themselves this winter."
Evans replied: "It was a flippant comment but the fact that is that we have to grow the economy," before Tiffin cut him off to end the show,
People thought Evan's comments were rather silly:
\u201cIncredible, my constituents in Weaver Vale are anxious with many struggling to pay energy bills. To hear the former Tory MP for Weaver Vale peddle this nonsense is an insult to women and families trying to make ends meet.\u201d
\u201cJaw dropping misogynistic comments from Graham Evans (used to be a Tory MP for Weaver Vale). \n\nThen you realise the Tories are about to put him in the House of Lords where he will get to legislate for life \ud83e\udd26\u200d\u2640\ufe0f\u201d
