Mr Howard was visibly frustrated after being asked about the leaflets a number of times.Dump. The. Candidate.
"What more can I do?" he said.
"I've condemned it, I've dissociated myself from it, I think it is stupid, it's offensive, it's wrong, it's untrue, I mean for heaven's sake get a sense of proportion."
Mr Howard said the election campaign had not been dirty.
"There have been some silly things going on, we have talked about one a bit and there have been a few silly things said elsewhere on the other side, but overall it has not been a dirty campaign."
Mr Howard rejected suggestion the bogus campaign leaflet issue reflected racism in the Liberal Party.
"I do not think that what has happened in the past couple of days in Lindsay could be evidence at all of some underlying racism in my party," he said.
What Can He Do? Hmmnnn....
