Based on this quote alone, would you guess the speaker was in the right, or in the wrong?

X: [What I did] was an inexcusable gesture and to them [the children], and the people in education whose job it is to show children what they should and shouldn't do, I want to apologise.

Interviewer: You apologise to them but do you really regret having done it?

X: I can't regret it because if I do it would be like admitting that he was right to say all that. And above all, it was not right.

We always talk about the reaction, and inevitably it must be punished. But if there is no provocation, there is no reaction.

First of all you have to say there is provocation, and the guilty one is the one who does the provoking. The response is to always punish the reaction, but if I react, something has happened....

There was provocation, and it was very serious, that is all. My action was inexcusable but you have to punish the real culprit, and the real culprit is the one who provoked it.


What would you guess about this speaker's age, gender, nationality, and profession based on this quote? Why? Or do you already know who said it?
