Good news it seems our many emails to Sky News have encouraged Grahame to make an apology on Sky News.

Australian conservative commentator Grahame Morris has been forced to backtrack on his anti-Irish comments which were broadcast on Sky News last week.

The former chief of staff to the prime minister has now apologised for his “tasteless” attempt at “morose humour”.

 

Speaking again on Sky News he said:

I got myself into a hell of a pickle on this. To all those with Irish backgrounds, which includes me, incidentally, I’m actually very sorry.

 

What I said was tasteless and I copped the whack I probably deserved.”

Political reporter Laura Jayes referred to the flood of emails which Sky News had received in relation to the remarks.

 

Morris added that “kick Grahame” had now become the national sport of Ireland, “instead of Gaelic football and soccer”.
