Michael Laws statement regarding the Governor General

11/10/2010

By Michael Laws

Today I have engaged in discussions with RadioLIVE regarding my comments about the Governor General and his physique.

I apologise to the Governor General for comments which were, upon reflection, uncharitable and inappropriate.

I reserve the right to be controversial and outspoken.

But my off-air comments, in particular, crossed the line from puckish to insulting, and although that was not my intent, it was still inappropriate.

I also apologise to MediaWorks for any embarrassment that may have been subsequently caused.

I return to my talkback show on Wednesday after the current scheduled leave.
