Too clever by half …

 Oscar Wilde, my grandfather, ‘talked himself into prison’.

Here, as he reads from the cross examination, Holland groans. “Oh God! Honestly! How he could have done that. He had one joke too many and he talked himself into prison.”

That was my conclusion when I read an account of the trial many years ago.
