He told the BBC Scotland news website: "Things such as this reinforce the problem. We should stick to exotic flavours of ice cream.Now to me buckfast seems quiet an exotic flavour of ice-cream certainly more exotic then Strawberry. And I doubt anyone is going to get pissed on a sorbet of Buckfast unlike a bottle of Scotch which I doubt MacAskill would never dream of calling for banning.
"Some things are just not funny. Scotland has a problem with alcohol, it's a well-known fact.
"Ice cream is to be enjoyed but frankly this is crass and insensitive."
But it seems that the EU still wants to ban buckfast. For anyone that has ever drunk at the Spainish Arch I issue a rallying cry. They may take our lives but they will never take our BUCKFAST.
