'F--- you,' Winnipeg MP tweets
A longtime Winnipeg MP unleashed a foul-mouthed tirade Wednesday against the Harper government via his Twitter account.

NDP MP Pat Martin, who has represented Winnipeg Centre since 1997, launched the blistering attack via Twitter after the federal Tories closed down parliamentary debate on the federal budget.

This is a f---ing disgrace ... closure again, Martin tweeted. And on the budget! Theres not a democracy in the world that would tolerate this jackboot s---.

1. NDP MP Pat Martin unapologetic for Twitter tirade
OTTAWANew Democrat MP Pat Martin aired his frustrations with the Conservatives and an individual online critic in a profanity-laced tirade on Twitter while he was sitting in the House of Commons.

This is a f---ing disgrace . . . closure again. And on the Budget! Theres not a democracy in the world that would tolerate this jackboot s---, Martin tweeted Wednesday night while the Conservatives voted to shut down parliamentary debate on the federal budget bill.

F--- you, Martin (Winnipeg Centre) then replied to someone on Twitter who had criticized the first tweet.
