Shocked and appalled

Danny Williams won't be muzzled. Picking up pen and paper, he fired off a missive to Quebec's daily Newfoundland newspaper, saying:
I will accept responsibility when mistakes have been made, but I will not turn a blind eye to erroneous statements which destroy my reputation or the reputation of others.
It would be a lot more believable, that bit about how he "will accept responsibility", if the second part of that phrase didn't lapse into the impersonal passive voice, "when mistakes have been made".
