Right - I've been very quick to run my mouth off in the 'John Lewis HP Laptops' subject and I think it's time for me to apologise.
Firstly, I recognise that I got the situation wrong and VERY wrong on that day, and admit that I may have seen the situation I wanted to see - a conman instead of a salesman doing his job. Interrupting was rude on my part and I, as the editor stated, was right to be asked to leave.
Secondly, I intended no libellous reference to John Lewis, its employees or customers. What I stated was based on my anger at the time - and once again, someone was right to pick me up on this. As a law student, I should know better - and I rather let my emotions get ahead of me.
Lastly, I offer my sincere apologies to anyone who I've offended. I was quick enough to let my hotheadness get the better of me - it takes a man to say sorry.
I hope that this is the end of the matter - and to anyone who I've unintentionally offended, my sincerest apologies.
