(Newser) – Irish Green Party member of Parliament Paul Gogarty has apologized for using the F-word—twice—during a heated debate on budget cuts. Gogarty, who swore after being heckled by an opposition party member, withdrew the remarks but pointed out that the hackles-raising word in question—unlike "buffoon" and "guttersnipe"—isn't on the Irish parliament's list of banned words. The parliament now plans to review its rules of conduct, the BBC reports.
