"Alex Salmond spent more than £370,000 of taxpayers’ money on official entertaining during his first term in office, according to official figures obtained by the Daily Telegraph.

The First Minister’s private office paid out an average of £1,800 per week on food and drink between May 2007, when he took power, and his re-election four years later.

Mr Salmond ran up his highest annual bill of £115,542 – the equivalent of £316 per day – in the same financial year as the onset of the financial crisis, when thousands of families started struggling to make ends meet."

Bloody hell, will the Scots be able to afford independence if it means they have to foot the bill?

  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.
