Speaking with The AM Show, Dr. David Clark admits defeat and makes new excuses for his 'idiotic' behavior.
Addressing his actions, Clark makes a formal apology to the Prime Minsiter, and the New Zealand public, fronting up to his mistakes:
I've failed here. I've let New Zealander's down. I've just got this wrong.
Gillies ends the interview on a rather prominent note, asking New Zealand to spare a thought for Clark's family during this time; reinforcing that it was him that made the mistake, and him alone.
