Australia's Minister For Education Just Called The Opposition Leader A C**t In Parliament

"The minister will refer to people by their correct titles."

It was just a regular boring old day in parliament when Christopher Pyne began comparing Opposition Leader Bill Shorten to a contestant in a reality TV show.

20 seconds later, after it all hushed down, Pyne delivered this beauty.

And Twitter responded...

Christopher Pyne calls Bill Shorten a cunt in parliament. It went like this: "Hello Pot? It’s kettle. You’re a cunt!" http://t.co/u2ryJBaEKC

Anyway, what we've really learned today is that if you call someone a cunt you have to follow up with, "Sorry madam, I withdraw".

Pyne was not told to leave Parliament, with Speaker of the House Bronwyn Bishop instead asking him to keep the titles accurate.

Who knows, maybe Mr. Pyne is just a fan of Louis C.K

Pyne's camp has since come out and said the minister said "grub." You be the judge...
