He’s his own worst enemy!
HAHAHAHAHA. You can’t make this stuff up if you tried! The Tories have been handed the election with a big ribbon wrapped around it, how nice of Gordon Brown! KGS
Gordon goes back to grovel in person to life-long Labour grandmother he called a ‘bigot’ for complaining about immigration
A humiliated Gordon Brown was forced to drive to a voter’s house today to apologise, hours after he was caught out calling her a ‘bigoted woman’.The Prime Minister had to tear up his schedule to visit Gillian Duffy, 65, after his gaffe threatened to totally undermine Labour’s election campaign.Mr Brown had already apologised to the life-long Labour voter, who had quizzed him about immigration levels, by phone after realising his comment was recorded on tape.But in farcical scenes, he later went to her terraced home in Rochdale, Lancashire, to speak to her in person to try and mitigate the damage.He emerged looking chastened after an agonising 40 minutes to face the hordes of media massed on the drive.‘I am mortified by what has happened. I have given her my sincere apologies. I misunderstood what she said. She has accepted that there was a misunderstanding and she has accepted my apology,’ he said.‘If you like, I am a penitent sinner. Sometimes you say things that you don’t mean to say, sometimes you say things by mistake and sometimes when you say things you want to correct it very quickly.Despite the frantic damage-limitation exercise, the slip-up risks delivering a potential mortal blow to Mr Brown’s hopes of staying in Number Ten.
