Sir Paul McCartney 'should apologise to American people for Bush insult'

Breaking News

Congressman John Boehner, a leading Republican, has demanded Sir Paul McCartney apologise for mocking former president George W Bush during a star-studded event at the White House.

Mr Boehner, the House Minority Leader, was outraged after Sir Paul made clear his admiration for president Barack Obama when receiving the third Gershwin Prize for song-writing.

He then concluded by saying: "After the last eight years, it's great to have a president who knows what a library is."

Despite his occasional habit of mangling words, Mr Bush was reportedly a voracious reader in the White House, particularly of biography and history.
