Whisky Galore

I meant to write this some time ago, and the Scottish Gigolo jogged my memory.
In that marvellous film, there is a publican, who spills the beans to the authorities about where the whisky is hidden.
When asked why, he replies that there was no benefit to his business from the hidden whisky and therefore he could see no reason to NOT tell the authorities.
It struck me this is a very Scottish attitude, although it may be prevalent elsewhere too.
Why should I help you if you are not helping me?
Not very helpful to charities, I would say.
