Now that really is an apology … https://t.co/CvnM4U5LYg— Nick Robinson (@bbcnickrobinson) December 8, 2021#
Of course, he's also saying that as a transparent sneer about Boris Johnson's 'apology' in the Commons today.
“Never apologise. Never explain” has long been Boris Johnson ’s watchword. He has now apologised & he has explained … that it was all someone else fault. He’s threatened those who work for him with disciplinary action. Those who trash their staff often live to regret it.
I think he's right, but I don't he should be saying it as an impartial BBC reporter. But, as we know, that ship has already sailed for good, like the Titanic.
