I have absolutely no idea what Gladys Berejiklian is like as a person. Nor can I possibly form any sort of concrete view about whether she engaged in corrupt conduct or not. What I do know, however, is that the nearer you get to what you think might be the "truth" about any public figure - what they are like, the sort of person they are - certainty quickly evaporates into mist and fog.
