UK PM says Pakki was unacceptable

Prime Minister Gordon Brown on Monday added his voice to those condemning Prince Harry for calling an Asian army colleague a “Paki” but said the royal’s apology was genuine and should be accepted.The 24-year-old prince issued an apology after his remarks, captured on a video made in 2006, were published on the News of the World website. He said the comments were made without any racist malice intended.”I think Prince Harry knows these comments were unacceptable,” Brown told GMTV, saying the sincerity of the apology could not be doubted.”I think the British people are good enough to give someone who has actually been a role model for young people and has done well fighting for our country, gone into very difficult situations with bravery, I think they will give him the benefit of the doubt.”Harry is set to face an Army inquiry and Brown said the prince would be meeting his commanding officer soon to discuss the comments.
