Australian PM Kevin Rudd issues apology to British child migrants click here
Better late than never, I suppose. GB's apology will be coming soon.

I wonder if the Pope will do so too at the way nuns beat them in their care.

Will the Catholic church be apologising for the Inquisition's actions too...?

It's history, can it really mean much now?

It does to the survivors. That's why the apologies are forthcoming.

If you had watched the inetrview on BBC Breakfast with a lady who was one of those forced to migrate you would never say that.

It was without doubt one of the most moving interviews I have seen for many years.

Sorry wrong post.

Just an interesting aside to consider. Brown's going to apoligise to these (now adult) migrants. How come he never apologises for errors he's responsible for?

Up to now the silence from the various church organisations that were involved in this disgraceful business has been quite deafening.

the church has a lot to answer for :/ but im not allowed to get into that ..

i always find it strange how someone not responsible for it has to apologize, itd mean nothing to me
