Fusillade of f-words flies thick and fast while unrepentant David adds fuel to fire

DAVID Norris was fanning the flames again yesterday, dropping all manner of f-bombs on a female politician – although this time his target was Labour senator Lorraine Higgins.

What could be politely termed a "lively exchange" – aka an unmerciful barney – broke out between the duo in the corridors of Leinster House yesterday afternoon over an email fired off to David by Lorraine calling on him to apologise to Regina Doherty for his use of the word "fanny".

The irate independent senator had no intention of offering a mea culpa, and loudly declared, "I will not f***ing" apologise to her," before unleashing quite a selection of synonyms for the word in question, many of them most definitely unparliamentary. Lorraine got stuck in right back at him – it was a high-decibel encounter, overheard by all sorts of ear-wigging Dail denizens passing by.
