Brown gaffe on campaign trail

Brown gaffe on campaign trail
Gordon Brown has described himself as a "penitent sinner" after making a personal apology to a voter he described as a "bigoted woman" this morning. The prime minister described his original encounter with Mrs Duffy as "a disaster", believing he was off-mic. Mrs Duffy initially said she felt the discussion went well and that she would be voting Labour, but once she listened to the comments she said she would not be sending her postal vote and that she is "not bothered" whether he wins or not.
