A TD has dropped the 'f-bomb' in the Dáil while criticising the 2020 budget.

Independent Dublin South-Central TD Joan Collins accused Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil of not caring about real people in their plans.

She withdrew the language after the Leas-Cheann Comhairle said it was unparliamentary.

Deputy Collins was highly critical of the budget, telling the chamber: "This budget says loudly: 'crisis, what crisis?

"I notice there are very few here from Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael.

"You're not here, you're not listening, you don't care.

"And to put it bluntly: from the amount of phone calls I've got from constituents over the last 24 hours, you's just really don't give a fuck and it's just absolutely outrageous that this is actually happening and people are being subjected to this budget".
