Give us peace. How numbingly predictable that, within hours of Andy Murray's thrilling and inspirational US Open win some dull-witted, opportunist politicians would call for the Scot to be knighted. At the age of 25.
Leading the charge was the deputy leader of the Scottish Labour Party, one Anas Sarwar. Like Scottish MPs of all parties at Westminster, Mr Sarwar clearly enjoys an abundance of spare time. "It is only right and proper that his [Murray's] achievements are recognised, and I can think of nothing better than 'arise Sir Andy'," he intoned.
