Let them eat (oat)cakes

Let no-one say that wee Eck is profligate with Scottish resources.  When entertaining guests, he even gets his wife to provide the oatcakes – see p 8 point 3 of this pdf document released on the dinner marking the opening of the third session of the Scottish Parliament.

  1. interesting reading. I can only begin to imagine how you came across this…although legally I assume.
    A point that worried me though: on page 8 it says that because the first lady is supplying the oatcakes they should delete the “homemade” from the menu. Surely that should *strengthen* the argument for calling them homemade? In fact, I’m worried that they were being described as homemade prior to that, when in fact they were “caterer-made”, in fact if I had been attending that dinner and saw the oatcakes described as “homemade” then I would have assumed, nay trusted, that they had been made by the fair hand of moira.
    What a chilling look into the seedy underbelly of the scottish catering menu-writing profession.

    I don’t know why, but that document rather amused me.
