News International's gravel-throated press baron James (Shaggy) Murdoch has told the Levenson Enquiry that he 'stands by' his testimony regarding alleged clandestine sexual activity on the the bathroom floor.
The lengthy Parliamentary enquiry was set up to ascertain whether the news baron and raconteur of sexual prowess had indeed been 'caught butt naked, bangin' on the bathroom floor' - as alleged in a recent Guardian exposee.
The media magnate made no attempt to deny to the counsel for the inquiry Robert Jay QC, that 'wrongdoing had clearly occured at a number of locations' at his villa including the counter, the shower and the sofa. However he continued to flatly, but charmingly, rebut suggestions that the philanderer in question - photographed in flagrante - was Mr Murdoch himself, much to the exasperation of the Enquiry panel.
Mr Murdoch will take the stand at the enquiry again today to fill in details regarding the so-called 'jacuzzigate' scandal, again involving the unnamed girl next door.
A number of commentators are suggesting that these latest allegations - involving a hot tub, two shadows witnessed in the bedroom light, a misplaced jacket and half a bottle of red wine - will be harder for the embattled deputy chief of News Corporation to explain away with rapid-fire-but-winsome charges of mistaken identity.
The enquiry is set to continue throughout Thursday, Friday and Saturday, adjourning on Sunday to 'chill'.
