Phone Hacking: Kelvin MacKenzie Apologies To Lord Leveson
Stop the press. Motormouth Daily Mail columnist Kelvin MacKenzie has done something he rarely does – apologise.
But it’s not for comments he made over the Hillsborough disaster which he has trended on Twitter for.
Instead MacKenzie has said sorry to poor old Lord Leveson who he hit out at last week.
“On reflection, I owe an apology to Lord Leveson, the judge heading the inquiry set up in the wake of the News of the World phone-hacking scandal,” he wrote in the Daily Mail.
MacKenzie made a speech in which, amongst other things, he described PM David Cameron as an arse kisser.
But it was his comments about Lord Leveson which he regrets. “I was somewhat disparaging of his ability when, as a young QC, he failed to win a conviction for tax evasion charges against Ken Dodd.
“Before I delivered my speech, he was very courteous to me and yet I repaid him by being disobliging. I shouldn’t have done it and I am sorry.”
