Brown sorry for 'bigot' gaffe

British PM apologises to woman for calling her a "bigot" while campaigning for elections.

    Gordon Brown, the British prime minister, has apologised in person for calling a woman a "bigot", while campaigning for next week's general election.

    Gillian Duffy had challenged Brown with questions on a number of issues, including east European immigration.

    Brown made the "bigot" remark about her after getting back into his car, which was picked up by a microphone.
