THIS IS INTERESTING: BBC apology to Queen over Abu Hamza disclosure.
The BBC has apologised for revealing the Queen raised concerns with the government about why radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri had not been arrested.
The apology comes after security correspondent Frank Gardner told BBC Radio 4 of a private conversation he had with the Queen some years ago.
The BBC said it and Gardner were sorry for the “breach of confidence”, which both “deeply regret”.
The apology is interesting, but mostly I like the idea of the Queen calling her rather feckless ministers in to ask What the hell do you think you’re doing?
