I think Kate used the strange expression "..give an account of the truth".
Even allowing for the fact that English has never been their strong point, why not just say "the truth". That would obviously beg the question about what they had been saying for the last 4 years.
but - 'an account' of the truth ? What can it mean ? Are there other possible 'accounts', of which this is just one. (And Gonçalo Amaral's is another !)
"an account" does imply a set, from which this one is to be selected.
Has anyone ever heard anyone else on the planet use this form of words ?

Kate has had plenty of opportunities to tell the truth to the Police. She does not need to write a book to tell the truth, that clearly is a money making exercise imo. The point also needs to be made when she says one thing in one interview then contradicts herself in other interviews as with the statements that would to me suggest that perhaps she does not know the meaning of the word Truth or how to tell the truth. imo

A million dollar advance......well today i read that it is frankly a timid £200 000 advance. And the only paper to take it up was the Sun.

Not a very good deal financially by a long stretch. And not really that good in marketing terms with just the Sun on board, should be good chip wrapping copy, while they are having phone hacking charges flying around News International.

With Clarence on £75k, Dave Edgar and the team on who knows what, this £200 000 isn't going to last long.......perhaps they are casting the musical soon?

mmmm. Maybe Clarence can go in the spare room that should save a few quid. How much is a decent new rug?

At least we know who to bother sending the list of questions to, given that the Sun 'journalists', will have finished their exhaustive investigation by now, and the other papers will be looking for a spoiler. It would be nice to see the list of questions running at the same time! Ha ha as if!
