British PM sorry for `disrespectful` comments

Cameron came under fire after suggesting Nadine Dorries, a lawmaker from his own Conservative party, was extremely frustrated.



London: British Prime Minister David Cameron
has apologised, in an interview published on Saturday, after he was
criticised for being disrespectful in comments he made to two
female lawmakers.

Cameron came under fire after suggesting Nadine Dorries,
a lawmaker from his own Conservative party, was "extremely
frustrated" and telling opposition Labour MP Angela Eagle to
"calm down, dear."

But he insisted in an interview with the Sunday Times
newspaper that he was not "one of the lads" and admitted he
had made a "terrible mistake" by making the remarks during two
recent sessions of his weekly grilling in parliament.

"It`s my fault. I`ve got to do better, I totally accept.
I`m the one who`s got to explain who I am and what I`m like
and what I think," he said.

"What I find frustrating is that I`m not a sort of `All
right luv, I`m down the pub tonight` whatever. That`s not me.
But obviously I`ve come across that way," he added.

His comments came as the Conservatives, who share power
in a coalition government with the Liberal Democrat party,
were gathering in Manchester on Sunday for the start of their
annual conference.
