All this remind me about the Member of Parliament who was required to 
apologise for calling one of his opposite numbers a liar. He did so by 
reading out the statement

"I called the Honorable member a liar it is true and I am sorry for it", 
adding that the Honorable member could insert the punctuation wherever 
he so chose.
