come on donut where are they the boat went under before you could get the info from them about harbour landmarks etc, you don't even know what part of the country they are in far less east or west of Shetland.

 

Where are you going to start looking for your flotsam etc

 

not as simples as you seem to be

keep up i posted the answer two minutes before your last post, obviously to fast for you

 

that will be the poor connection from BT a common problem that you ignore completely till it suits you to make a comment on how slow we are up here.

 

also aberdeen co ordinates emergencies on rigs as the rigs are in a known fixed position no need for local knowledge is there.

bobdahog you are upset because with the questioning i was demonstrating there i would have the bloke and his two bairns out the blue crinkly and home for his tea, next job please, oh wait a minute next job for shetland is in 3 months times.

 

If you want to check IP addresses feel free, but i guess that is showing that i am hitting a nerve or vein of truth with some of you guys

 

Childish, very childish

you haven't saved them yet because you still don't know where they are. the battery went under water and shorted out before you had a chance also your accent is hard to understand.

Hypothermia is setting in with the bairns and dad broke his leg getting them on to a skerry so no chance of them swimming the hundred yards to shore.

I think again you are greatly misled.

 

I am not campaigning to have Shetland shut nor any other station. What i cant stand is to see public money flogged on a dead horse.

It sure looks like you are campaigning to shut Shetland, you do not answer any questions put to you, you seem to constantly belittle the staff at MRCC Shetland and, in my humble opinion, the only dead horse is the management who drew up these ill thought out proposals .

 

 

You lot are really being impossible.!

How? By trying to save one of our lifesaving blue light services?

 

 

I came on here to put to you that shetland islands is a lib dem strong hold and it is the guys that you voted in that is allowing this to happen to you.?

AGAIN - Our MP and MSP, the ones we voted in, are quoted in the press as supporting the retention of Shetland Coastguard

 

 

I gave you stats from blue boss which demonstrates to the world how you are the least busy coastguard station on the coast.?

And where exactly are these statistics, prove them or they are unsubstantiated and worthless.

 

 

I also put it to you how you believe that a MOC with improved Technology was incapable of running shetland little patch from Aberdeen when these guys deal with rigs further away than shetland?

All you could reply is 'Local Knowledge' 'Local Accent' ' Big Jobs' 'Losing our jobs' and abuse to anyone that spoke against you.

Once again you have not been reading the posts – on page 1 it clearly states that there is a weak link to the mainland which would leave Orkney and Shetland without cover if there is a fault.

 

 

You mentioned selling the training centre, well you should know that is ear marked for sale and will be sold in the next few years and training centre moved.

Excellent, there is one brain cell there then

 

Face facts guys what is happening here is you are like during the strikes demonstrating what a crowd of narrow minded bigotted selfish rude people work at shetland.

These people, Shetland Coastguard Staff, continued to provide a service to US during the strike, I salute them.

 

I have been been to shetland a couple of times and i know this is not a reflection of the people of shetland but what a poor impression you must give the shetland people of the coastguard.

When are you coming back?

 

I will now sign off to allow you lot to throw your teddies out the pram at a few home truths.

I think you need to face the truth that Shetland will fight tooth and nail to Save Shetland Coastguard !

Aberdeen C/G and the whole MCA, with their improved technology, hadn't a clue who a casualty was, nor where she was, despite her being right on Aberdeen's doorstep at the time of the incident. It doesn't inspire confidence.

 

Local knowledge, had it existed in the shape of C/G staff from her homeport area, which Aberdeen C/G could have spoken to, would have very likely known the boat in question, her history and circumstances, which could well make all the difference as often as not.

 

Of course the MAIB spread the blame widely, so that no-one got hung, including a not inconsiderable portion on those who couldn't answer for themselves. The dead crew.
