Labour Politician Accuses Defense Secretary Of Talking 'B******s'
Let's face it, politicians calling one another out in public isn't anything new. In fact, we're in the middle of a General Election campaign so it happens daily.
Labour slur at the Conservatives, they spar back. The Liberal Democrats throw their weight into the ring, before UKIP say something to stir the nation. And then we call consider voting for the Monster Raving Looney Party, because hey, who doesn't want a 99p coin.
Usually, swearing about politics is left to Dave in the pub, but this morning it happened on the Andrew Marr show on BBC One.
Labour MP Emily Thornberry clearly felt that dropping the B-word was the best was to rubbish the Defence Secretary, Michael Fallon.
As the debate grew increasingly heated, Thornberry claimed her counterpart was talking 'bollocks' after he said Labour may be willing to negotiate with Argentina over the Falklands.
Fallon also claimed that Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour party, has shown 'quite open support' for the IRA after Thornberry accused him of visiting Syria to 'celebrate' the re-election of Bashar al-Assad in the 2000s.
She said: "You really can't just go around making this stuff up. There is an election on and people need to make decision on the basis of the truth.
"You have just said, for example, that I want to negotiate the future of the Falklands. That is bollocks."

The politicians are all campaigning for the UK General Election which is to be held on June 8.
And with all the bickering that is going on at the moment, I ask you to hold steady for just three more years, and think about moving to America.
Why? Because there is the 'real possibility' that Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson could run for President of the United States. And just think off all the greatness that could bring.
In a recent interview with GQ magazine, we learned even more about his lifestyle, his personality, and that he would consider the job.
Interesting piece from The Washington Post on if I ran for POTUS I could actually win. Writer Alyssa Rosenberg did some pretty good research into my background (slave descendants fighting for their freedom, Revolutionary War etc). Much more to uncover but well done. :thumbsup: More and more pieces like this are popping up due to the Presidential election and they're cool/fun to read... I care DEEPLY about our county... and the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring. Buuuuut until that possible day, the most important thing right now is strong honest leadership from our current and future leaders of this country. Thanks again Washington Post. :flag_us: :muscle:

"I feel that if I were president, poise would be important," The Rock said. "Leadership would be important. Taking responsibility for everybody. [If I didn't agree with someone] on something, I wouldn't shut them out. I would actually include them. The first thing we'd do is we'd come and sit down and we'd talk about it."
I know where my vote is going...
