And if that list isn’t enough to convince you his words today were not really sincere, here’s what Rupert really thinks about his own part in the mess, in his own words:

I do not accept ultimate responsibility. I hold responsible the people that I trusted to run it and the people they trusted. It is for them to pay … I think that frankly, I’m the best person to clean this up.
