The Bishop and the nightcap

We hadn't been paying proper attention to the strange tale of Anglican bishop Tom Butler and an apparent drunken escapade in central London of which he has no memory until a little detail was mentioned in last evening's Radio 4 report on it -- that it began at the Irish Embassy. Hence one of the theories in his defence:

An insider at Lambeth Palace [C of E HQ] supplied what might be the real answer of what really happened last Tuesday night.

“We are wondering if he was slipped a glass of poteen [an Irish whiskey]. It does have that effect on you, especially if you don’t normally drink a lot.”
