What else could explain a background that has involved revealing the 'Mission Impossible' takeover attempt of Rangers by Ethan Hunt; that Little Britain stars created a storm when describing Motherwell in less than complimentary terms; unveiling Scotland's most valuable companies; and detailing the £1bn hole in the country's public sector pensions.

Road and rail routes were packed as more than 50,000 fans came to see the first Scottish Cup final between the Edinburgh sides in 110 years.
Before the game, which ended in a painful 5-1 defeat for Hibs, the atmosphere was good-humoured, with Hibs supporters daring to dream they might lift the cup for the first time since 1902, while fans of Hearts, the favourites, were trying not to jinx their hopes with over-confidence.
But yesterday the forecast focused on locations with a royal connection as Prince Charles made a special appearance to present a weather report.
The Duke of Rothesay, as he is called when north of the Border, surprised viewers with his broadcast during a tour of BBC Scotland's Pacific Quay headquarters. His accomplished performance was followed by Camilla giving it a go.
Reporting Scotland news presenter Sally Magnusson was given the chance to introduce Charles as the special weather presenter.
