Broon Tackles The Hardest Word

And more news from Scotland - Broon has managed to emit the word 'sorry', which is believed to be a lifetime first for him. But note how he's using it - he declares himself 'sorry about what happened'. Not 'sorry for' - and it was just something that 'happened' . All he is saying is that he regrets what happened, i.e. that McBride was found out. Well he would, wouldn't he? Ah but he takes 'full responsibility' - and in case we doubted that, he goes on, 'I take full responsibility for what happened. That's why the person who was responsible went immediately.' But if you're taking 'full responsibility', Gordon, then 'the person who was responsible' was you, and you appear not to have gone immediately. It won't be long though, with any luck...


  1. Ah, the old "the buck stops here, except on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday" routine, it was me but there again maybe it wasn't.
    Poor Gordon, always the bridesmaid, never the McBride.

  2. Just seen it, crivvens, that man's a lousy liar.

  3. Does anyone else really want to read these emails? I know it's a little perverse, but I blame the news reports. When something's described as lurid, scandalous, obscene and, my favourite, scurrilous, an urge to rubber-neck a little is inevitible, no?
