Those naughty Liberal Demoprats are at it again. One of those naughty boys used the word arsehole in a debate in Westminster Hall.

The arsehole is Ivan Lewis, a government minister, probably for pomposity. He must have had a really sheltered upbringing because his comment afterwards was that "the use of such language is not only inappropriate but sends out a terrible message to young people".

I agree it does send out a terrible message to young people, that the MPs are so poncey they find the word arsehole really shocking. I grew up in Gorton, an old Labour part of Manchester, and kids then would have thought you were a right poof for using a word as mild as arsehole. Times have changed, perhaps we should send young people to Iraq or Afghanistan away from such incivility!
