Don't hold your breath

So, in relation to the foot and mouth outbreak.
The breaches at the Institute for Animal Health at Pirbright, four miles from where the disease was found, are shown in two reports due on Friday. They include a leaking pipe; drains inadequate for floodwater; and failures in monitoring people and vehicles.
I assume that Johann Hari will be issuing a grovelling apology for this then? I mean you can't just casually assert that foot-and-mouth disease has somehow seeped out of an American pharmaceutical lab and into the animal population well before the publication of the report into the incident, and then ignore the fact that the breach was actually from the Government run laboratory can you? That would mean that you had made the story up entirely, on the basis if nothing but prejudice, and then didn't even have the decency to acknowledge it.
