What is bigoted?  
So, Gillian Duffy from Rochdale reportedly says: "All these Eastern Europeans what are coming in - where are they flocking from?"

Prime Minister Gordon Brown, in a private conversation with one of his aides shortly afterwards, describes her as "bigoted".

What do you think?

She also said she liked Blair and thought Brown did a good job as Chancellor, so she's clearly insane.

"All these Eastern Europeans what are coming in - where are they flocking from?"

Erm the answer appears to be in the question too. Some people are too fecking stupid to be listened too.

I think the answer to the question is clearly "Eastern Europe". There's a clue...

It's possible that he used the wrong word - I suppose, may have caught the tendency off the last US President...

He's not the only one putting foot into mouth though - David Davis attacks clergy.

Nope - not bigoted.

Ignorant is all; and maybe one ought to wonder WHY?

I'd agree - bigoted possibly a slightly strong word although I can see why he used it; she just came across as ignorant.
