    MEP in isles putting forward EU Remain case

    Originally published by and copyright of www.shetnews.co.uk

    SNP MEP Alyn Smith, who has been representing Scotland in Brussels since 2004. Photo: Shetnews/Neil RiddellVOTING to leave the EU would jeopardise human rights, employee protections and freedom of movement – leaving huge areas of public policy at the mercy of a right-wing Conservative government at Westminster. That is the argument of SNP MEP Alyn Smith, who was speaking on a visit to the islands a little over three weeks ahead of the UK’s in/out referendum on EU membership on Thursday 23 June. Smith is staging a meeting at Islesburgh from 7.30pm on Monday. He said the Remain campaign was contending with Vote Leave opponents who are “propagating fairy stories” such as the widely-dismissed claim that Britain hands £350 million a week in public money to Brussels.

    Preview: A book reading that is a stand-up

    Originally published by and copyright of www.shetnews.co.uk

    Stuart Maconie will perform a part stand-up, part book reading at Mareel on 11 June.The Pie at Night is not a promotion of Stuart Maconie’s book of the same name – not really. It’s more that the book is a jumping-off point for an evening of what Stuart describes as “somewhere between stand-up and a book reading”, writes Alex Garrick-Wright. Stuart is under no illusions that a straightforward book reading can be a dull affair. As a veteran journalist, writer and broadcaster, he is fully aware that a person reading from a book is not, by itself, that exciting. The show coming to Mareel, he assures Shetland News, is quite different to what you might expect.
