An own goal

An interesting letter appeared in this morning's Times from one Miriam Gonzalez. Normally, this would not attract any attention but some media commentators have felt the need to refer to it purely because the author is the wife of the Deputy Prime Minister. She would not approve:

Sir, now that Spain has won the World Cup and Iker Casillas demonstrated on Sunday that he is an outstanding goalkeeper regardless of whether his girlfriend, Sara Carbonero, watches him from the touchline or not, it may be time for you to eat a bit of humble pie. Trying to blame Sara for Spain's initial lacklustre performance while she was simply doing her job was not worthy of a newspaper that should treat women for who they are and not simply for what their male partners do.
