"THE SNP government spent more than £36,500 on alcohol at hospitality events in its first year at Holyrood, almost double the bill posted by the Labour/Liberal Democrat regime in 2003-4. Scottish Government spokesman said: "These ministerial events are for good causes and promote Scotland's interests."

And all at the same time as the Scottish Government are involved in a political crusade to stop everyone else in Scotland from availing themselves of Buy One Get One Free (BOGOF) promotional offers at their local supermarket.

Presumably its OK for foreign visitors to be knocking back the free booze courtesy of the Scottish Government given that any adverse health impacts will largely be met by their own health services in their own countries? Or maybe just double standards of the most blatant kind?
