Ken Woe

Militant Moderate makes some interesting comments about the ongoing Livingstone furore, with which I largely agree, however, I can not share his complete ire against the Mail Group and the Evening Standard. It is silly and absurd to make Livingstone utter the now completely meaningless words "I'm sorry" just to placate certain pressure groups in the most superficial manner possible. That, however, renders his comments no less thoughtless, his behaviour no less unbecoming, and his actions no less vulnerable to criticism. The modern trend for behaving how one wishes just to "apologise" in an apparent loss of face must be stemmed, along with the unnecessary public love-ins or moments of false and artifical "grief" a la Diana's funeral which remind me all to eerily of George Orwell's "minute's love/hate".
