and for that I sincerely apologize
I can appreciate that for a man paid, what...£500k a year, that's an onerous task, saying sorry (without admitting liability, natch). But what if his customers are British and want him to apologise?
I say hanging's too good. Public drowning in a washing up bowl full of cold porridge, that's what's needed. Do it at the Institute of Directors on Pall Mall, and you'd find that suddenly British companies started to take data protection seriously.
