OUTSPOKEN TD Richard Boyd Barrett has been reprimanded for using a number of expletives in the Dail.

The People Before Profit politician accused the government of spouting "bulls***t" in relation to its review of the Programme for Government.

He also accused Fine Gael of enjoying a "wet dream" while in government, in a move that saw him being reprimanded by cathaoirleach and Labour TD John Lyons.

"Let me summarise the Taoiseach and Tanaiste's speech, bla, bla, bla, bla, mumble, mumble, bla, bla, mumble. mumble - success, what a load of bulls**t," Mr Boyd Barrett said.

"The government are living so far out of reality, they might as well be in the outer stratosphere on a planet on the other side of the universe," he added.

Mr Lyons told Mr Boyd Barrett that a number of young children were occupying the visitors gallery when he made the remarks.
