Rupert and the soldiers - sorry!

Rupert Everett apologises for calling soldiers 'wimps' - Telegraph

A proper apology, though I read his interview as him being very English using flippant irony, making good points. Of course it never pays to do so to a journalist as they believe irony means something is made of steel.


Actually, most journalists believe that irony is what you would normally call coincidence. For example, the guy who invented jogging died of a heart attack while jogging. This, according to the average journo - and indeed the average Brit - is 'ironic'. Good spot.
