Regrets and apologies

 

A chara, – A misleading headline to your report “‘I probably let my guard down’: Leo Varadkar apologises for attending Merrion Hotel event”, News, August 7th).

Reading the article, it is clear that the Tánaiste actually makes a point of not apologising. “I probably let my guard down”; ‘I want to express my regret . . . that it has led to this controversy.” No pun intended, but I’m sorry, this is not an apology.
