Neil Mitchell and Andrew Bolt clash over LGBTI ‘apology’ on 3AW

Neil Mitchell and Andrew Bolt have clashed over the Victorian parliament’s decision to formally apologise to the LGBTI community.

Premier Daniel Andrews said ‘sorry’ on Tuesday to those convicted of homosexual acts before it was decriminalised in 1980.

Herald Sun columnist Bolt said the apology was hollow and questioned what it really meant, given the current government wasn’t responsible for what happened.

‘Apologise for your own mistakes,’ he said on 3AW Mornings.

‘Stop dancing on the past like you’re the hero.’

But Neil Mitchell strongly disagreed, saying it clearly made a difference to those affected.
