Our apologies, Prime Minister. I’m sorry we were not racing around the world trying to establish a world record on a ten million dollar sailing vessel that was wrecked by a storm.
I’m sorry we were not a Russian poaching vessel stealing Patagonia toothfish from the waters off the coast of Antarctica where we breached our hull and needed your help.
I’m sorry that we are not an eco-tourist vessel grounded on the beach of Antarctica in need of your assistance.
Unfortunately we’re not setting world records, poaching fish or gawking at penguins.
