    Who cares, if thats his opinion fair play. Nice to hear some honesty.

    Lets see how long it takes Cameron to copy him if he thinks hes getting more publicity than him.

    But it wasn't honesty. It was a slip up. It wasn't as if he meant to say those things so people could hear. He's not brave, just extremely stupid.

    Any publicity is good publicity, right?

    So because he said it in his car not to reporters it wasn't honesty???

    If I were them, I'd be having words with Sky news over publishing recordings when they shouldn't have been recording...

    I'm not a big fan of the press, especially when they pull stunts like this, recording people after official interviews have finished.
    It's called having a personal opinion, we're all entitled to one, and entitled to not have them plastered over the internet.

    The dishonest bit is the part where he didn't bother to tell the woman to her face, instead he gave the usual political spin as answers, and didn't point out his real feelings to her questions in public.

    How often in our daily routines do we think that the people we work with are idiots, have done something stupid etc?

    How would we like it if our personal discussions on them were publicised for all, especially the person in question could see?

    how was it not honest.....it was clearly his opinion of the meeting with the woman, and it was a private conversation, so if you can't be honest in private with an aide when can you be. i bet it was a darn sight more honest than the grovelling apology that undoubtedly followed. ofcourse it's a slip up because he was caught on mic, and he'd never be that 'honest' with the cameras rolling. More's the pity.....it was a real 'the thick of it' moment. v. funny.

    this election is just ridiculous, it was bad enough the opposition missing all the open goals presented to them, now labour go and score an own goal in injury time to kill the contest off.

    Okay, my bad - he was being honest. But he had no intent for anyone to hear it. So he isn't honest in the brave sense, as much as honest in the stupid sense (as in 'Doh! Let's just put my head in my hands while they replay that audio')

    How many celebrities have met this same fate? It's part of being in the lime light. If he is capable of running this country then he should also be capable of taking his own slip ups on the chin.
