No, he wasn't joking (just stupid).

WRT the "race riots" - the PM wasn't really sure (initially) what to make of this line of inquiry - an obvious non-sequitur.

Q: "Do you think anything the Government said over the last few years has set the tone for the actions on the weekend?"
PM: "Which Government?"
Q: "Your Government."
PM: "My Government?"
Reporter: "Yes."
PM: "Certainly not. What do you have in mind?"
Q: "Your position on Iraq."
PM: "My position on Iraq?"
Q: "Do you think that's had any influence on people feeling alienated?"
PM: "My position on Iraq? You've got to be joking."

Many comments over at Tim Blair's.
