Going to Jackson's.

From Drumlanrig, "That were SNP MSPs doing in in Jackson's restaurant in Edinburgh last week? Some say it was their delayed celebration knees-up to mark a year in power. But they insist it was a simple dinner to celebrate the best of Scottish produce, with Environment and Rural Secretary Richard Lochhead. What's politics coming to when you even have to spin your tea? The slap-up feed featured haggis, Scotch beef, sea bass, Scottish berries and Orkney fudge ice cream. Surely just a coincidence then that the event was timed just after the first meeting of Holyrood's Cross-Party Group on Obesity? And surely there were no MSPs who attended both events? So much for the fudge ice cream, although it could have been worse – at least the whipped-cream cranachan was off the menu. And the less said about deep fried Mars Bars the better."
