Brownlee’s “apology”,

|

I’m sure that New Zealanders have been the butt of all sorts of jokes at various times and not taken offence at such a thing,” he said.

“If I’ve offended people, I’m sorry about that, all I can say it was meant to be humorous and I apologise for people not seeing the humour in it.

Gerry Brownlee is sorry because “people [did not see]  the humour”   in his obnoxious comments?! How does that constitute an “apology”??

Gerry – shut the hell  up! You’re digging a bigger hole for yourself and continuing to insult a nation and people that have done nothing to earn your mis-guided  derisory “humour”.

You are an embarressment, Gerry.  I suggest you take a holiday. A longgggg holiday. In fact, don’t bother coming back.

    “I apologise for people not seeing the humour of it…” is not an apology. Neither should there be an “if I caused offense…”. He did. A simple “I apologise for the offense I caused” would suffice.

    Indeed.

    It seems that Dear Leader has apologised, “Prime Minister Key has presented his regrets to the Finnish president, whom he met yesterday in Seoul at the nuclear conference. He said that he’s sorry for the comments.” – http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/political/101882/finland-accepts-apology-over-nz-minister%27s-comments

    It reveal’s something that Christchurch folk who didn’t vote for him have known for awhile. Brownlee is tactless and lacks empathy with people in Struggle Street. His disregard for peoples concerns being trampled on by the legislation that created C.E.R.A. despite them being valid should raise alarm bells if C.E.R.A. is going to be the governance model for recovering from big disasters.
