Nicola Sturgeon the 1st minister of the Parliament in Edinburgh, has only this week hailed the Scotch Whisky Industry as a winner for Scotland’s economy.
That is really amusing for me as I well recall Winifred Ewing in circa 1974/5 when she was MP for Moray & Nairn and was canvassing at the time I was Running Tormore Distillery in her Constituency on Speyside.
She appeared quite unannounced on our land. in my Distillery to talk Nat stuff to my workforce.
I challenged her about this and she came out with rubbish about how Scotland’s oil will outstrip everything for ever, and that the whisky industry was not the bees knees !
Her son Fergus is now the energy Genius for Scotland.
He apparently is now in love with wind turbines, having castigated them unmercifully in circa 2007.
There is not a lot of mention about the north sea at this point in time !!
That’s human nature of course, and there is nowt so queer as folk !
So, I’m glad to see that our national drink is back in favour !
If it was not so sad & serious it would be hiliarious.
