    Re: difference in meaning

    "People should always tell me truth. Having said that, I must admit there have been times when I've told the odd white lie."

    In the first part, I make a statement Having made that statement - 'having said that"- I go on in the second to comment on, qualify, or point out instances which conflict with what I've just said.
