When Alun Cairns let slip his bad taste “joke” about “Wops” last year on a Radio Wales he was pilloried, forced to give up his committee position in the National Assembly of Wales and almost had to withdraw as a prospective candidate for the Vale of Glamorgan.
When another politician made a serious comment today, not at all in jest, but deriding a specific individual as a bigot, all he had to do was pop back for anther cuppa, make a probably false apology and exercise his smile when you lie gene on leaving the house of the offended. The last bit was of course for the benefit of the assembled media.
Funny old world!
8 days to go then he should be gone.
