FOR months the local Liberals have been carrying on like pork chops over Labor’s Joy Burch retweeting a disparaging remark about Education Minister Christopher Pyne that included a regrettable four letter word beginning with “c”.
Now the man himself appears to have used the word himself, in Parliament no less.
Will this be the end of this particularly juvenile carping?
UPDATE: Fairfax is reporting Mr Pyne’s office insist the word he used was “grub”.
Press Gallery stalwart Malcolm Farr, however, appears to be taking a different view:
I understand Mr Pyne's response will be made by the newly appointed Minister for Rhyming Slang, Greg Hunt.
