Any difference between ‘reject’ and ‘deny’???
Probably on front page of IT today, available on IT site now:
Also up already on Donovan site:
I have a little difficulty with Shell’s use of language here …
I believe the ubiquitous ‘reasonable person’ would read ‘reject’ as ‘no thanks’/'don’t want that’/'refuse to accept’ etc etc whereas ‘deny’ would be read as ‘it didn’t happen’.
Shell may not want or refuse to accept OSSL’s allegations but they have yet to DENY that in 2005/6/7 they provided booze tp cops.
