Second, our now controversial meeting with Michael Mates. It is true that we asked John Blake to arrange the venue and pick up the tab but we intended to discuss various matters with Mates, completely off the record. Somehow that meeting got hijacked and we were not fully in control of it.
The publishing of the Clare Latimer dildo pictures was a complete surprise to us. We knew they existed but not where they were, and there was no collusion between us or anyone else to have them published. Lastly, Angus Wilson did not say we intended to haunt the Prime Minister 'until kingdom come'. That would indicate malice on our part whereas, in reality, we are bored to death with the action and with him.
On a personal note, they were Abbotsbury oysters, not Colchester. Abbotsburies are tastier and cheaper.
