Roast Anyone?

Mr Smith likes a bit of history, so thanks to the Herald Diary for this insight: "A NEW range of luxury chocolate bars by The Chocolate Library feature famous Scottish landmarks, including one entitled the Scottish Parliament. The condensed history of the parliament accompanying the bar explains that Queensberry House, which has been incorporated into the parliament building, includes the oven where the son of the Duke of Queensberry, 300 years ago, roasted a servant boy on a spit. The oven is now in the office where politicians' allowances are processed."
