The whaling industry has returned to Dundee.
Or so you might think when confronted and affronted by the blubber that walks down the High Street each day.
Scotland is in the midst of an obesity epidemic and Dundee is at its heart.
But let’s not lose heart.
Our elected fatheads in Holyrood have at long last recognised the link between education and diet. Just how long it is since Simple Simon met a pieman I do not know, but surely that pastry encrusted clue didn’t take them that long to solve....?
Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with the occasional Dundee peh, as we lovingly call our local delicacy.
It's just that we need to encourage a different school of thought as well as a more svelte school of whales.
