I think I shared with you my delight at the comment of a certain Ben Cousins when emerging from intensive care after (so the reports said) he had an adverse reaction to a prescription sleeping pill. He described the episode, poker face, as having been ‘a wake-up call.’ Similarly a Mr Brendan Fevola, or his representative on his behalf, proclaimed his innocence when accused by a mother of four, no less, of having exposed himself to her. The comment: ‘Brendan has nothing to hide.’”

    You know, when Winston Churchill paid a wartime visit to the US, President Roosevelt once accidentally came upon Winny rising out of the bath.

    “So you see, Mr President,” said Churchill straightaway, “I have nothing to hide.”
