Federal Liberal backbencher Don Randall has refused to clarify comments caught on tape earlier today, in which he referred to the ABC as the “Gay-BC.”

The comments were recorded before Randall gave a press conference this morning and were later poster on Twitter by Sky News’ John Bergin.

It’s been reported Randall made the comments after stomping on the ABC’s camera cord.

A media spokesperson for Randall told Southern Star Observer no clarification would be offered on the remarks.

“The comments are already on the public record… he won’t be commenting any further,” a spokesman said.

The remarks were made as Randall also mistakenly labeled his own party’s ideas on regulating bank interest rates as “lunatic” and “fringe”.
