Well they aren't called Brian Taylor

"Asked about the information given to her by Dr Calderwood, Ms Sturgeon said it was possible for more than one thing to be true at once. |
For a moment, I was back with Alice in Wonderland, or rather Through the Looking Glass, contemplating six impossible things before breakfast.
However, I know what she means. Ms Sturgeon was initially given limited information, dealing with a single weekend visit, said to be intended to secure the Fife property.
It then emerged that there had been another visit, on a different weekend. This, understandably, excited further questions from the wicked media.
Ms Sturgeon argued that the number of visits was immaterial. There was no justification for the CMO in leaving Edinburgh at all. It was indefensible, and she did not defend it."
Taylor's first thought was right, invoking Alice in Wonderland. Sturgeon was initially downplaying the first visit when it seemed to be the only one, then in order to absorb the impact the second visit would have, she then makes the first visit the important one. A pair of impossible thoughts, but probably after breakfast.
