Life lesson: the apology must be commensurate with the wrong done

When the apology is not commensurate with the crime, forgiveness comes more slowly, if at all but hopefully it does come.

This is why insincere apologies read out in Parliament during the time allocated to read out statements don't work.

This is why when instructed to apologise, the spirit of remorse is absent and therefore the damage is not undone.

This is why ironic and/or sarcastic apologies and/or apologies based on lies are invalid.

To come with an apology that is not commensurate with the wrong done, is like coming with a two inch plaster to cover a gashing 12-inch wound.
