This is Brown being interviewed down the line for Radio 2 shortly after the incident.

What’s striking here is the manner of his response – his apology was not really an apology at all. I just wonder whether this is making matters worse.

The problem, of course, is that this just reinforces the perceptions people have about him – from the way he spoke to his aide in the car to his comments about the broadcasters.

Meanwhile, Ladbrokes have further tightened the price on “bigoted women” being mention in tomorrow’s final debate. I got on at 6/1 – it’s now 3/1.
