When A Spoonerism Becomes A Freudian Slip

Yes, of course it isn't a nice word to use & it remains, understandably, one of the few words in the Anglo-Saxon lexicon to remain taboo. That said, it was somehow apt that Jeremy Paxman's verbal faux-pas on Newsnight yesterday evening was committed in the context of a piece about the ConDem cuts & the tax-dodgers who donate to the Tory Party (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZtd4X8ubXA ).
What a load of, erm, cuts.

There is obviously a contagious disease spreading through the BBC (this so soon after James Naughty's slip on Radio 4's Today programme, followed rapidly by Andrew Marr speaking of the same and whose quote was a little too accurate - recall: Jeremy Hunt). Who next?
