    To me, it is just another step on the road to having to 'prove' who you are to anyone and everyone. Bet the police will love this one.

    They’re up to no good with this one. The link states electoral fraud is negligible, so to me the motivation seems to be an attempt to disenfranchise the people who don’t hold a driving licence or passport and are unlikely to go to the bother or expense of getting other forms of acceptable photo ID. Under 20’s, the poor etc.

    This is an old topic but, I think that it is still relevant. https://www.shetlandtimes.co.uk/2021/07/23/carmichael-concerns-over-photo-id Looks like our elected 'betters' might be trying another attempt at this one. They don't give in, do they ?

  14. A friend used to have a breaded dragon and I believe he had a subscription with an online supplier who sent regular packages of live food. Your postie might not thank you though!
  15. I believe Leasks are selling off their buses. Could be worth a try??

    The 'victims' are people who don't like seeing the town vandalised. And The War Memorial was a single location, whereas the last incident was several locations. There are arguments to be had regarding the relative symbolism and validity of the 'targets' but the scale is different. From my perspective, the "outpouring of outrage and criticism" doesn't "far exceed" the War Memorial incident (which made it to the national news), but then I don't know where you're sourcing your outrage and criticism from.

  18. ^ Generally its to get a reaction, stirring the pot, poking 'society' with a sharp and pointy stick etc. The implied 'cause' being supported/condemned in such 'messages' rarely has any relevance other than it being one the author is of the opinion is as controversial that it will trigger the most people. Its certainly worked given the way the media and social media have reacted, although perhaps not entirely in the way intended. As the 'cause' (which if there is one, would appear to be the alleged 'sexism' of the LK UHA, but its a bit cryptic.....) has mostly been ignored and the greatest

    Beats me as to why anyone would want to do this kind of thing. It's really dumb and only serves to alienate anyone who 'might' have supported their cause(?). Interesting that plod is appealing for any CCTV footage that might be out there. I seem to remember 250K + being spent on a system just so they could use it in situations like the aforesaid. What happened I wonder ?

  22. Does anyone have a minibus or bigger who would be interested in doing a shuttle bus from an event near toon? As well as being paid for the service I can provide waterproof seat covers for all seats and a premium valet. I have tried to contact nearly all bus companies but none are interested in dealing with folk coming from a party. I have no problem in signing terms and conditions and holding myself responsible for paying for any potential issues. We also have willing bus driver's if any buses were available for hire. Would even consider buying an old bus. Hope to hear back soon Ch
  23. I recently found hundreds of flies coming out of two previously potted Christmas trees i had planted in the garden. slightly different looking from the normal house flies.

    This is quite disappointing https://www.shetnews.co.uk/2021/07/20/graffiti-defaces-lerwick-town-hall-and-esplanade/ ...and it's not even amusing or thought provoking. I expect it's not only Loki who isn't happy - the SIC cleansing team will likely be a little miffed too! Hopefully the paint comes off the stonework and pointing of the Town Hall without damaging it

  26. Cats and fly papers are a bad mix... Despite having the a few papers hung where no cat could ever possibly reach, our very fluffy gentle giant girl somehow managed to get one stuck to her. A looong jump from the top of the fridge to the far end of a windowsill is about the only trajectory possible. Poor wee thing. It was not pleasant [for either party] completely removing it and the residue which involved a bit of trimming, a lot of washing and, somewhat understandably, some blood (not hers). Never underestimate a cats ability to get absolutely anywhere! I doubt we'll use fly papers
  27. ^I love cats. That's because I was married. Now I use fly paper.
  28. After trying a number of differet sprays, all ineffective to the point where I might as well hit the flies with the tin.. I found some stuff that might be of use.. It's called RAID and it takes the little buggers out of the air with no problem. One quick spray around, and less than 10 minutes later, no files.... Mind you, I have no idea (yet) what it does to the wife and cat. Hope the cat survives..
