Very Observant.

Courtesy of Drumlanrig, "Last week witnessed the relaunch of the Scottish Catholic Observer, the country's only weekly religious paper, at a posh canapé and champagne do at the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh. The lunch was hosted by Sir Rocco Forte, owner of the hotel, who was also billed as the owner of the smart new-look paper, but Drumlanrig understands that a fair chunk of the paper is still owned by one Conrad Black, currently serving a jail sentence for fraud. It seems the SCO is continuing in the tradition of hating the sin, but loving the sinner."

Sure fire way to get press coverage though. Invite the press to the Balmoral for champagne and canapes. Very tabloid.
