Poor Cornelia Rau. She’s lately acting on advice from Bob Ellis, as her sister Christine explains:
Christine also criticised the “wisdom” of the treating psychiatrist who gave Ms Rau permission to leave the state and called for her to return to resume treatment.
“It was unwise for the doctors to let her go without taking a blood test to check if she was taking her medication,” Christine Rau said.
Her sister travelled to Melbourne after meeting author Bob Ellis at Adelaide’s Festival of Ideas a week earlier.
Ellis did not return phone calls yesterday, but Christine Rau said he “felt bad about planting the idea in her head to go to the festival”.
Good work, Bob.
