To be fair, I just felt we needed a distraction from Brexit. So , perhaps but probably not.

"To be fair" = I wish you to believe that I am a person who considers both sides of each argument but, in reality, I know I am always right so what I am about to say will be the TRUTH.

It's just an add-on that (lazy) people don't realise they're using in conversation.

It definitely shouldn't be used in written text, hence this thread from cue2 when I used it.

To be fair, I'd punch you first before running away.
