Gordon Brown and the “Bigoted Woman” UPDATED

There is quite a furor in the UK over Gordon Brown being caught on microphone calling a pensioner who asked him about immigration a “bigoted woman.”

In addition to further documenting that Brown is a jerk, this shows he wholeheartedly believes the Leftist meme that if you are concerned about immigration, you are a “bigot.”

Brown has just apologized. Too late! And you said what you really think about those who question Labour’s mad immigration policy, so why apologize for letting the truth out about your bigotry, Brownie?

By the way, LibDem Nick Clegg has said he won’t comment on the matter. No doubt because that Leftist also thinks those who oppose open immigration from the EU are bigots.

UPDATE: Clegg has changed his mind and has commented:

Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg said: 'Everybody in every walk of life will mutter things underneath their breath they wouldn't want people to know about.'

'In an election campaign, you have got to give as good as you get but treat whatever questions you receive with the respect they deserve. I think saying something clearly fairly insulting to the lady in question is not right, it's not right at all.'

Clegg then muttered "even if she is a bigot." No, he didn't say that, but he surely thought it.

And, yes, the link reveals the Daily Mail is having a field day with this.
