But Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister and leader of the Liberal Democrat party in the governing coalition, has apologised in relation to the charging of university fees. You may remember that before the election, when there was no hint of a coalition, the Liberal Democrats were united against tuition fees, which are now £9,000 a year. If you voted LibDem because of this you were shafted when they went into office.
However, Clegg has apologised for adopting the policy against tuition fees in the first place. He has not apologised for joining a coalition which went against one of the fundamental planks of his campaign. He has not apologised for being so drunk at the prospect of power that he went against his word and let down his supporters.
Not really an apology at all.
