"if i'm at fault for anything i'm sorry, but if there's a chance you won't blame me then I won't take responsibility, and i can't be bothered to work out what is my fault or what i should be sorry for"

# Chris Huhne did a great one just before he was jailed in 2013...
"I am sorry. I want to say that to family, to friends, to constituents and to colleagues, and more broadly to everybody."

Which would have been fine. But he actually said "and more broadly to everybody who cares passionately about the causes I care about, including saving the planet for our children and our grandchildren."

What kind of please-don't-hate-me bullshit is that? Did he seriously think he'd get out and maybe pick up his political career where he left off?
