WWith this Prime Minister, we’re getting used to excuses that aren’t really apologies. These are the ones where the word “sorry” is used followed by something totally apologetic; a touch of boosterism framed as Boris Johnson intends to “carry on”. It happened again this week with the release of the Sue Gray report.
And of course it’s contagious. In March, P&O Ferries fired 800 employees via video call. After being told this, security forces arranged for them to be removed from the ships so they could be replaced with cheap labour.
