Copy and Paste this quick - before it gets likely removed by some over-zealous moderator.

 

I have a programme here in front of me. It says:

 

Top o' da Pops

1. That Sinking Feeling - Big **** and the Loss adjusters.

 

I understand **** (yes, the former Jarl himself) sold his boat but subsequently claimed his boat had been sunk. He was trying to get the money from the insurance company.

 

Things might have gone his way, except the new owner of the boat happened to apply to the same insurance company for cover on the (not sunk) boat.

 

**** threatened to throw paint over the Proclamation unless the bit about him was removed.

7000 programmes were printed with the above. However as usual last minute tweaks led to the Bill showing:

 

Top o' Da Pops

 

1. Highway Star - Robbie Williams on Tour

 

The point was still made though:

 

DEFACERS OF OUR BILL WILL HAVE THEIR SEA COCKS AND BILGE SUCTIONS SCREWED UP TIGHT BY WIR JARL.

Some former Jarls don't always enter in to the spirit of UHA as much as some others do I'm thinking. :wink:

I will be interested to see what action (if any )is taken agaist ex Jarl "Big ****".

 

Any other member of the public would be brought before a disciplinary meeting and banned from Up Helly Aa and all its other activities for at least 5 years.

 

I fear however, this will probably be swept under the carpet!!!

Alledgedly the bit "that sinking feeling" was a dig at his depression "sinking into a deep depression" Maybe Ex-Jarls are shunned on by the Up Helly Aa Committee if they have an illness like depression.
