Meaking a meal of it.

"IN FIRST minister Alex Salmond's well-publicised bid to eat only Scottish food last week, he would have been well advised to steer clear of the Scottish government's own canteens. An investigation by the Sunday Herald has discovered as much as 80% of the vegetables and half the meat served to nearly 6000 civil servants in Edinburgh and Glasgow is imported from outside of Scotland. The revelation, condemned as "appalling" by food campaigners, has prompted drastic action by ministers."

Another one of those occasions where the political rhetoric sadly fails to live up to the on the ground reality. Pat on the back to Mr Hutcheon for pointing it out. Fancy a Ruby Murray?
