Labour official Andy Kerr sorry for Catholic jibe

Senior Labour official Andy Kerr has apologised after apparently aiming a jibe at a Catholic delegate at the party conference in Liverpool.

After calling a woman to the stage to speak, Mr Kerr – who chairs Labour’s ruling NEC – added: “Did you cross yourself, there? In that case, I might not [call you].”

Following criticism, he later apologised “unreservedly”, adding: “I was trying to be lighthearted but what I said was ill-judged and wrong.”
