"So sorry, Ma'am"

"The BBC has apologised for revealing the Queen raised concerns with the government about why radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri had not been arrested.

"The apology comes after security correspondent Frank Gardner told BBC Radio 4 of a private conversation he had with the Queen some years ago.

"The BBC said it and Gardner were sorry for the 'breach of confidence', which both 'deeply regret'.

Glenn Reynolds comments: "The apology is interesting, but mostly I like the idea of the Queen calling her rather feckless ministers in to ask What the hell do you think you’re doing?"

What The Queen Really Thinks might be a very interesting book.
