Adams obeys the rules, takes an office of profit under the Crown

David Cameron has just told Nigel Dodds MP and the Commons:

You may not have caught up with this yet but the member for West Belfast has just accepted an office of profit under the Crown. I’m not sure he will be delighted to become a baron of the manor of Northstead….. We are aiming for all members to take their seats. If any of them have a problem, they should come and talk about it.

Dodds had asked a question about SF abstentionism, This seems to have been a device to allow Cameron the break the news.
