No Offence

When someone ends a derogatory statement with the phrase “no offence” you can be bloody sure that they are being, and fully intend to be offensive. It’s a bit like starting off by saying “ with respect”.

The BBC have just pulled a video for the 6 nations which they didn’t even preface “with respect” or “no offence” –
