Partial Apologies To The BBC, To Mr Mandelson, And To Ants Everywhere

In the interests of accuracy, I have checked my notes on those errant Newsnight subtitles, and realise - with some reluctance - that I made a mistake in the transcription of my shorthand. Mr Mandelson's fellow "participants" in the EU were not "piss ants" at all. They were "piss pant".
I think there was only one pant involved. I have now written to Ms Martha Kearney, c/o Radio 4's Woman's Hour, to try to ascertain the style of pant in question.
