I think I will have to calm Cactus Kate down this afternoon, this has never happened before.
It has always been¬†the other way around. Given the vagaries of time zones I suspect it may be difficult to get hold of her especially as it is Saturday, which follows Friday night.
Nevertheless, I really wouldn’t want to be the journalist who spilled her guts and published private conversations with Cactus. Who on earth would now ever speak or chat with Fran O’Sullivan in what you may have thought were private conversations? She has shown a willingness to publish those private chats in order to protect her own hide.
I suspect things are going to get messy.
The journalist sounds like she is protesting too much and covering her own arse.
I would have thought discretion was the better part of valour, since the very people she has slammed in her article are yet to give evidence (as witnesses, not as participants,¬†“a¬†distinction that will not be lost on sensible readers”) to the inquiry.
I note that O’Sullivan has relied on Cactus properly doing a search in Gmail for her name.
Bad mistake Fran, given that Cactus has a terribly short span of attention when it comes to IT matters because she has always had staff to do work for her, then I suspect she probably got bored after the third emails and thought to herself, “that’ll do, Fran will be OK¬†with this, time for¬†one of those famous Hong Kong brunches”.
O’Sullivan really should have checked her calendar when making a request that required concentration and accuracy…word for the wise…Saturday comes after Friday night, and everyone knows what happens in Lan Kwai Fong on Friday nights, which is why extensive brunch buffets on Saturday have copious quantities of booze soaking food.
I pity O’Sullivan for gobbing off in the media ahead of three other people having to give evidence to the inquiry. ¬† Read more »
