    But he’s a lefty economist; they are all wrong by definition ‘cos their theories depend on the rest of the country funding the daftness of denying human nature. But it’s nice to get an appology.

      He didn’t apologise. The rest of the article after the line quoted here is an exercise in insisting he was actually right, despite being wrong. Also – Osborne, Daily Mail, yada yada yada.
