What on earth are we supposed to think about whatever follows these words? I'm too busy questioning if the person is admitting they're unsure of their own honesty, to be frank.

It's probably a quirk of the wonderful syntax that is the English language but to me, the use of the word "if" also implies that the speaker might have a predisposition for being more dishonest than honest...

I love the hierarchy of words that politicians use to describe their achievements...

"A complete success" means we might just get away with it
"A partial success" means a failure
"A limited success" means a disaster
"A learning opportunity" means a career-limiting disaster
"A regrettable sequence of events" means an act of such unspeakable dishonesty, that it requires immediate resignation in order to avoid being sacked

With the greatest of respect, I think we've heard this before, or will, in the fullness of time.

At the end of the day we all repeat ourselves sometimes and say things again too.

"We have learned a valuable lesson" - we were totally wrong, irresponsible, culpable and should be prosecuted - but have decided just to draw a line under it and never mention it again.
