Incensed polly interrupts ABC journalist just to call him a maggot
Labor MP Brian Mitchell has been left with egg on his face after blasting an ABC reporter.
Matt Wordsworth, a reporter for ABC’s Lateline, was interviewing MP Justine Keay with a hard line of questioning when Mitchell felt the need to step in.
Keay is caught up in the midst of the Australian citizenship controversy and she was doing a reasonably good job of getting through a tough interview until Mitchell jumped in, aggressively attempting to intimidate the journalist.
We’re not sure what is worse, the offensive comments or the fact he thought it might somehow help his colleague.
Either way, the look on Keay’s face after all her hard work is undone is priceless.
Mitchell has since apologised for his comment.
