Yesterday in response to another interest rate hike, PM John Howard said “I would say to the borrowers of Australia who are affected by this change that I am sorry about that and I regret the additional burden that will be put upon them as a result“.
Today Mr Howard denied apologising for the latest interest rate rise.”I said I was sorry they occurred. I don’t think I used the word apology,” Mr Howard told reporters. “I think there is a difference between the two things (sorry and apology). I think we’ve been through that debate before in the context of something else.”
Sorry Mr Howard, I apologise for this post, because you don’t hold my trust anymore.
