Mr Myers Regrets

at

In the most pompous way imaginable.

Whatever animosities there have been must now be laid aside. Not merely do I wish him well, but upon reflection, I also accept that the personal antagonism existing between us was in part my fault: that some of the language I used about him was not merely too personal, but was an abuse of columnar privilege. I regret, and I apologise for, this. President-elect Higgins on Friday becomes President Higgins, head of state of the Republic, and my president: he is entitled to, and is accordingly granted, my unequivocal loyalty as citizen.

Columnar privilege.

Quite.
