Why then is it giving grants to breweries (September 17)? One is to receive a grant of £1.85million and another £551,000.
Surely there are enough varieties of beers already available without Government funding more?
Part of the justification seems to be that it will create 34 jobs.
Do we need more alcohol industry jobs, especially at a cost over £70,000 per job?
I think this decision needs some explaining.
I WATCHED the BBC report of the Welfare Reform Group at Holyrood and it made me ashamed that things have been allowed to get this bad.
We all know there are some folk who have played the benefits system for years, but to tar everybody with the same brush is wrong.
The current benefit changes are attacks on the least able by the most able, attacks on the poorest in society by the richest.
The Westminster Parliament is filled with very rich people who are only concerned with their own greed.
Worse, we have a Labour party willing to go along with the attacks on the poor and disabled.
Suddenly, independence doesn't seem so bad.

IS it beyond the wit and wisdom of our city roads bosses to carry out major repairs when the roads are at their quietest?
The chaos and tailbacks on Hope Street on Wednesday were a joke. Who thought it a good idea to dig up and cone off one of the busiest routes into the city in the middle of the day?
Surely the work to fill the potholes could have been done at night.
As it was, buses were backed up right down Hope Street to the Clyde, and traffic coming off the M8 was log-jammed along Bothwell Street.
Yes, I'm glad the worst of the potholes are fixed but, next time, spare a thought for us drivers.
