THE TV health guru Gillian McKeith has launched a campaign to kill off a much-loved Scots delicacy.The problem arises when politicians get involved and try to impose their values on the populace instead of leaving things to the market. Let's hope that Ms McKeith sticks to persausion and doesn't resort to force.
The dietitian, who helped Pop Idol winner Michelle McManus to shed five stones, now has the famous Aberdeen rowie, or buttery, in her sights.
While visiting the area at the weekend, she said: "I'm here to banish the buttery. Aberdeen is in need of my help."
Anyway, the Aberdeen diet can't be doing too much harm.
