The Hard Word

It stands to reason: if a government can't say sorry to a whole people for theft of property and children, then it's not going to go out of its way to apologise to someone for leaving them incarcerated without trial or any legal recourse for nearly three years.

I don't know how much Habib or Hicks were mixed up in Al' Qaedda machinations, but on the amount of evidence shown to date, I can only presume innocence: at worst a couple of idiots who found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The hard nosedness of this government should surprise no-one, by now.

After all, patriarchs can never be wrong, can they?

'Always seems to me,
that sorry seems to be
the hardest word.'
- Elton John
