Hariet Harman

During an election hustings with Jeremy Paxman on May 29, the candidates were asked: "Do you think the party should say sorry for what has happened [in Iraq]?"


Jon Cruddas replied: "I do, actually, as part of the general reconciliation with the British people over what's been a disaster in Iraq..."


Ms Harman interrupted, saying: "Yep, I agree."


Mr Cruddas continued: "I don't think we can actually rebuild a sense of trust and a dialogue with the British people unless we fundamentally reconcile ourselves to what the situation is on the ground and our own culpability in creating it."


Ms Harman added: "I agree with that."


But today she told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "I've never said that the government should apologise,"
