Apologizing for 'Any Offence' Regarding the Darcus Howe Interview

This is not an apology BBC, this is political double talk, and garbage. Just don't say anything if you don't mean it.

It reminds me when I temped for a well known Northern California HMO , and we had to call angry customers and say much the same thing - this type of apology is legally meaningless and scripted as such. It avoids any mention of real guilt or wrongdoing.

In the real world, people say 'sorry , I was wrong to say that'.

"We'd like to apologise for any offence that this interview has caused," the BBC wrote on its website. 1
