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
