Frank Dunlop: Sorry your lordship; my eidetic memory is fading

Former lobbyist Frank Dunlop has said he cannot remember getting over IR£1 million in payments from a developer in the 1990s.

He was asked by Michael O’Higgins SC how he can recall getting £25,000 from Mr Kennedy but not £1.2m.

Mr Dunlop said he had a vivid or eidetic memory about some things, but not about others

Now c’mon people, is that not a perfectly reasonable defence.

After all, we’ve witnessed dozens of politicians, bankers, civil servants and property developers claim that they too ‘suffered’ from a vivid or eidetic memory about some things, but not others.

And yes, I did have to Google ‘eidetic’ for its meaning.
