I always make sure my raincoat’s to hand on the afternoons of the Holyrood garden parties.

What that means, of course, is if there is a god he’s probably a republican, and if our Dear Leader was the same he’d get his vote next year.

On Tuesday afternoon, parts of Edinburgh were swamped with people on their way to or from the Queen’s garden party, which was held in the Palace of Holyrood House. Does anyone know how much this event costs to put on? I don’t want a revolution or anything. Just curious.
