Michael O'Leary Apologises For Joke About "Making Love To The Queen Of England"

Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary has landed himself in hot water for the...oh wait, we've lost count of just how many times his comments have created controversy.

This latest gem comes after he addressed the British-Irish Parliamentary Assembly yesterday, and while such a meeting sounds like a sombre affair, it seems as though O'Leary was doing his best to lighten the mood.

According to the Irish Independent O'Leary said: ‘It is a great pleasure to be here and in such august company. Addressing such an august body as this reminds me much of making love to the Queen of England – you know it is a great honour, you’re just not sure how much pleasure it is going to be.’

We could see the funny side, but after O’Leary finished his presentation to the group, British MP Andrew Rosindell asked O’Leary to apologise for his joke, saying it was ‘inappropriate’.

O’Leary backed down, apologising and saying: ‘I didn’t mean to convey any discourtesy and I apologise if I did.’
