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.”
