Ahhhh. a 'BBC apology'
On Newswatch (A 'Points of View' type program specifically for BBC news coverage). They often have Editors or Producers on, who normally defend their actions with excuses, 'we are right' and trite comments, occasionally they give a 'BBC Apology' which like the Shapps letter are so mealy mouthed to be worse than useless to my mind.
I find Newswatch now so infuriating I can't watch it.
It reminds me of the big company customer service department standard response of "We are sorry you felt..." which is no apology at all.
