Re: Hope you are all ok?!

LadyA, struck down with illness yet you cleared out the old tomatoes, made chutney and made Christmas puddings. Id love to see what you manage when you’re firing on all cylinders!

Re: Wet droppings (grey green)

Now I usually refrain from commenting on threads such as these because I have very little to say. Now I realise that one can become very attached to animals and want to do the best for them. Also good stockman ship is essential and if you can’t offer that then you shouldn’t be keeping animals. Havin...

Re: A pity my Poppy couldn't be there!

Controlled immigration does not mean no immigration. I’d agree about our home grown disaffected youth. A real problem.

Re: A pity my Poppy couldn't be there!

I think Brexit was largely a protest vote by a country fed up with austerity, fed up with the government, and wanting to believe that any kind of change would be for the better, fuelled by false promises of a return to prosperity, millions for the NHS etc. So you don’t think that concerns about unc...

Re: A pity my Poppy couldn't be there!

Wow. Thats both detailed and spoken with commitment. I like to think I could repudiate every point you make except for the first one which is factually correct. The referendum was advisory rather than legally binding. However I think it would be a bad day for democracy if having sounded out public o...

Re: A pity my Poppy couldn't be there!

We’ll have to agree to differ on that big question then! But the thing that really p****s me off is this demand for a “people’s vote”. What was the last one then? A chimpanzees vote? A cauliflowers vote? Show me a remoaner and I’ll show you a latent fascist. It’s called democracy. Oh, we don’t like ...

Re: "Shetland in a box?"

I've just been reading a clarissa dixon Wright book, where she tries guga. Said it was the most disgusting thing she'd ever eaten. I think the boys on Lewis are still permitted to go to that remote stack called Sula Sgeir once a year to harvest 2000 guga chicks. Why they would want to rather than g...

Re: "Shetland in a box?"

BAF6F0AB-AC69-489C-B460-08C4C2D5BC08.jpeg Ah. We already have our own flag. The independence movement here gets little support. And only a bit more for seceding from the union and joining Norway. The most popular option is a similar one that exists between the Faroe Islands and Denmark. Don’t hold ...

Re: "Shetland in a box?"

Well it’s not the most important thing in the world, as I’m sure our MSP Tavish Scott would agree. And for those of us in the three most northerly islands we often feel neglected by the centre of power in Lerwick and its adjacent island of Bressay where Tavish Scott lives. Preparing maps with Shetla...
