A comment made by British Prime Minister Gordon Brown caught on tape, could cost him a vote in the upcoming election.

The blunder happened after a longtime labor supporter confronted Brown about the economy and immigration.

An aide was supposed to turn off the wireless microphone that Brown was wearing, but failed to do so, meaning his comments were recorded.

"That was a disaster. Should have never put me with that woman. Whose idea was that?"
"Sue."
"Just ridiculous."
(Unintelligible)
"Everything.  She's was just a bigoted woman."

Brown apologized for his comments and returned to meet with the woman later in the day, But she says, she will not vote for Brown in the upcoming election.
