All Apologies

Peter Hain has apologised for Northern Ireland’s role in the continued occupation of Iraq:

the man who commanded the FRU during the height of its depredations — Lt. Col. Gordon Kerr — is in Baghdad now, heading the hugger-mugger Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR), a large counter-terrorism force made up of unnamed “existing assets” from the glory days in Northern Ireland and elsewhere.

No, wait a minute. Did I say Iraq? Sorry, he actually apologised for Northern Ireland’s role in slavery. Dammit, this not wearing a proper pair of trousers on a Friday can affect one’s grip on reality.

    I wouldn’t worry about it. It’s very difficult to know if Peter Hain says what he means or means what he says considering he’s often half asleep when he says it. The brand of slacks you are wearing can definitely affect you throughout the day. I’m a fan of the Wrangler myself, if there’s a lot of important sitting to be done. The Levi is a killer if you’ve to cross your legs at any point.
