Is it the news that DC’s hero the Reverend Blair, has seemingly skipped paying a large amount of wonga from his incredible (in every sense) earnings?
Is it to take the heat off the decision to go ahead with the high speed rail link through the heart of toryshire?
Is he too upset after seeing his heroine depicted as more than a little batty in a movie? If so he needs a reality check.

Readers with more possibilities are welcome to throw them into the pot.
