Amritsar

HMG regrets the 1919 massacre at Amritsar, but won’t say sorry: “we debase the currency of apologies if we make them for many events”, and I suppose it would take too long.

Here’s Ferdinand Mount on the subject.

Reginald (not, pace the Grauniad, George) Dyer went to Midleton College in Cork; Sir Michael O’Dwyer, who approved of his actions, was from Limerick Junction.

The Conservatives thought Dyer was a great chap.
