THE DUKE OF BLUNDERS.

1 HE asked Aborigines in Australia if they still threw spears at each other.

2 HE said an old-fashioned fusebox in a factory looked as if it had been "put in by an Indian".

3 DURING a trip to China, he told British students they would become "slitty-eyed" if they stayed any longer.

4 HE tried to share a joke with blind, wheelchair-bound Susan Edwards and her guide dog by asking: "Do you know they have eating dogs for the anorexic now?"

5 HE suggested a 13-year-old schoolboy was too fat to fulfil his dream to become an astronaut.

6 HE asked a driving instructor in Scotland: "How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to get them past the test?"
