On Thursday, former Conservative police minister Nick Herbert said the word "fuckwit" live on BBC Two's Daily Politics programme. Which is not something you are allowed to do in the middle of the day really.
Presenter Jo Coburn wasn't too impressed. "We won't have any more of that," she scolded Herbert. After his colourful language was picked up on Twitter, the Arundel and South Downs MP defended himself by pointing out he was quoting his fellow guest, former police officer Peter Kirkham.
