When a video of former Labour minister, Lord Sewel, doing lines of coke with "prostitutes" came out, media everywhere responded with both shock and mockery, but for all the wrong reasons.
In fact, when I first heard the news on CBC Radio last week, prostituted women weren't even mentioned. It was reported as a drug scandal: "Lord Sewel caught doing cocaine!" Who cares, I thought. (An article published later at the CBC briefly noted that "Lord Coke" was accompanied by some "scantily clad female companions.")
