A member of New Zealand's parliament chose the wrong day to mutter swear-words at the opposition under his breath.

Unfortunately for MP Ron Mark it happened to be national sign language day and the interpreter who was in parliament for the occasion translated every word from his lips.

Ron was feeling the pressure when members of the opposition were asking probing questions about the budget during Question Time on Wednesday (20.05.15).

He discreetly - or so he thought - replied "shut the f**k up".

The embarrassing moment was caught on national TV - with the signer appearing in the top-right-hand corner of the screen - stuck her middle finger up at shocked viewers.
