Be careful what you wish for...

I wished quite hard for this...

Just once it would be nice to hear a Very Important Person apologising for something that he or she has actually done ... rather than offering a fulsome apology in the sure and certain knowledge that he or she can never really be blamed for the Bad Thing being regretted.

When it finally happened it turned out to be strangely unsatisfying.

It doesn't make me feel any more sympathetic to Nick Clegg in person, although it has made me a bit more understanding of the politician's dilemma and the justified fear being mocked for showing contrition.
