Tetchy Norris

DAVID Norris became tetchy when quizzed about the contents of letters he wrote for his ex-partner.

The Presidential hopeful was visibly irked when asked about the series of correspondence seeking a lenient sentence for the man convicted of statutory rape of a 15-year-old boy.

When asked would he reveal the contents of seven unpublished letters, Mr Norris was non-committal.

"I came out with my hands up, how many times do I have to say it," he said.
