Hmmmm. I like Mary Beard but she'd have been better advised to reflect a bit more on why she was so surprised that people were angered by the original Tweet. Putting 'civilised' in quotation marks hardly negated the import of what she said. She was well out of order, and could have just apologized instead of tying herself in knots.
Jeremy Hardy didn't seem to have the same problem understanding that the abuse of Haitians is about power, and gave a stonking performance on the News Quiz. First item on this episode.
