Ofcom clears Absolute swearing

Ofcom has ruled David Cameron's swearing on Absolute Radio during the Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show was not in breach of any rules.

And despite 20 complaints from listeners since the event on July 30th, Ofcom said the use of the words "twat" and "piss" were offensive but not enough to warrent any action against the station.

The Tory leader slipped up when talking about the micro-blogging site Twitter, and said "Pissed Off" when talking about how people feel about the Government.
