Lords a'leaping

Oooops! The Guardian's correction page on 26 November: “We did not mean to say, in an article about Afghanistan headed 'A war that can't be won', page 21, 21 November, that 'the return of the lawlords has meant harsh political repression, lawlessness, mass rape and widespread torture…” We meant to say the return of the warlords, etc.” Tulkinghorn can only imagine the reaction of messrs Hoffmann, Hobhouse, Hope et al at the allegation that lawlessness could conceivably reign in their courts. God forbid.
