Gordon Brown: Bigoted Woman

As he met with voters during his ultimately unsuccessful reelection campaign, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown committed a dreaded “Kinsley gaffe”—when a politician errs accidentally by telling the truth. Brown was asked by a voter, "You can't say anything about the immigrants … All these Eastern Europeans what are coming in, where are they flocking from?" Brown gave her an answer, and then drove away in his entourage, unaware his mic was still hot. He called the incident “ridiculous” and the voter “a bigoted woman.”
