Today I heard a few right wing commentators (including Andrew Bolt) to urge the PM to admit that he lied!

And in case anyone has any doubt about the objectivity of the Speaker, in 2006 Gillard was ejected from Parliament for 24 hours for calling Abbot a...wait for it... "sniveling grub".
Even if Mr Pyne did say only "grub", he should consider himself lucky not to be kicked out for his language, as happened to former prime minister Julia Gillard in 2006.
Ms Gillard, the then opposition health spokeswoman, was thrown out of Parliament for 24 hours for calling Tony Abbott a "snivelling grub".
"I move that that snivelling grub over there be not further heard,'' she said at the time, interrupting the future Prime Minister's speech on laws changing private health insurance.
Ms Gillard then withdrew her comment - "If I have offended grubs, I withdraw unconditionally'' - but that did not satisfy the speaker of the house, David Hawker, who named her for defying his request for an unconditional backdown.

Doesn't everybody pronounce grub with an 'unt'?
