Wine, woman and children overboard

The cred­i­bil­i­ty of Mr Scrafton’s account is not advanced by the atmos­pher­ics. There was an hour and a half between the first logged call from the PM (8:41pm) and a briefer sec­ond call at (10:12pm). Enough time for a glass or two and some ‘con­fla­tion’ of mem­o­ry? bq. In his ear­li­er evi­dence Mr Scrafton said he still believed he had received three calls from the Prime Min­is­ter but acknowl­edged he may have “con­flat­ed the num­ber of issues dis­cussed with the num­ber of calls”. He had tak­en the calls at the rear of a restau­rant in Leich­hardt where he had gone to din­ner with a female com­pan­ion and “two very expen­sive bot­tles of wine”.
