The Scottish health minister is perhaps the capo di tutti capi of nannying fussbuckets, a champion of extreme health fascism and user of any stray lie to justify his gross bigotry.
But this one takes the whole biscuit barrel:
Health Secretary Alex Neil has claimed that former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is to blame for the drink culture in Scotland.
Apparently the Scots were frogmarched down to the offie by Maggie and made to buy Tennant's Super and Buckfast Tonic Wine. Before 1979 no Scot ever had a drink stronger than Irn Bru, of course.
