    Default Clear association between Buckfast and violence

    What better justification do you need for native honey bees?

    A Scottish sheriff said last week there was a "very definite association between Buckfast and violence". The actual quote from the sheriff was Buckfast breeds violence. I didn't bother reading the article but assume it was written by someone from BIBBA ...

    I think its referring to the upsurge in violence caused by the DRINKING habits of scottish youth imbibing Buckfast wine which has suddenly become easily obtainable and popular. Not referring to the poor maligned Buckfast honeybees.

    Apparently the monks netted 8.8 million from sales last year.
    Better pay than beekeeping!
    I'll drink to that!
    "Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those
    that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and
    remember his misery no more." (Proverbs 31:6-7)

    Why is the top picture a reverse image I wonder. Has the Daily Record person been drinking too much of it her/himself?

    At least the Carrickfergus man did it properly with crystal meth and cocaine as well! Makes the Scot look a lightweight!
