Aussie politician speaks about the backlash over his silly anti-Irish comments
Says he's 'copped the whack he's probably deserved'.
Australian political advisor Grahame Morris has made a public apology after his ill-advised anti-Irish rant last week. He has now re-appeared on television to make the apology.
Speaking to Sky News Australia, Morris said "I got myself into a hell of a pickle on this. To all those with Irish backgrounds, which includes me, incidentally, I'm actually very sorry.
"What I said was tasteless and I copped the whack I probably deserved."
Sky News had been inundated with emails complaining about Morris' rant from last week.
Morris has previous and had been forced to apologise in another incident after calling a radio host 'a cow'. Lovely fellah it seems.
