Others cannot resist the profile it offers. ­Newspapers are always looking for ways to move it from the back pages to the front.

National outrage has supposedly been sparked by his engagement at the Nou Camp in Barcelona last week when he could have been abstaining in person at the House of Commons. …” The Scotsman
