When Gerry Adams last week tweeted an image of a chocolate cake he was using his Twitter account to do what he does best online, winding up critics while projecting to the public an image of himself as a regular guy.

The thick brown chocolate gateau, with “Failte ar ais”  (“welcome back”) written in lurid pink icing, was baked for him after his release from police custody.

He tweeted the image with a message that said: “Back in Leinster House. The Tyrone woman knew I was coming. So she baked a cake. Go raibh maith agat.”
