  1. I've just had a quick check - all figures are approximate. Ward of Scousburgh (the road above Levenwick) = 260m Bressay = 220m Collafirth (next to Ronas Hill) 230m Saxavord = 270m, but I'm not sure it is available to the general public, so yes, I'd agree on the high road from Levenwick to Scousburgh. Plus it is the only road that actually goes somewhere, as opposed to the top of a hill.
  2. Pots and kettles, perhaps... However, I do not feel insulted by the term "soothmoother", as I did come in the south mouth of Lerwick harbour about 23 years ago. If it has taken on negative connotations, it should be reclaimed like the word "queer" was by homosexuals. I'm a soothmoother, and proud.

    Councillor Miller does not appear to know about the Streisand Effect.

  8. Indeed. For the sake of understanding. What really was the process that went on? IIRC, the CE post was interviewed by all 22 coucillors.
  9. It's a quote from the song. I didn't get the joke first time.

  12. There are a now number of active threads that comment on the workings of various aspects of the SIC. Whilst it can be cathartic to post a general whinge about the council, would it not be more constructive to communicate directly to the SIC any concerns that people may have. I'm not sure that senior officials/ the councillors spend time reading Shetlink and think "Oh, that's a good point!". However you should get a response by using the feedback form on the council website. If you make a FOISA request then the council has a statutory obligation to respond within 20 working days. Any information gleaned this way may then be shared (if you want) with the members of the Shetlink community. This should provide more constructive light on issues rather than a negative rant that does not, I suggest, improve how the council provides services for us.
  13. Thank you for being open about this. Raising awareness, which leads to catching cancers earlier, is clearly a *good thing*.
  14. ^^ I agree, so why not elect the members of the charitable trust? As it has to be separate from the council, insist you cannot be both a councillor and a trust member. The current councillors however appear to be reluctant to relinquish any power.

    Gosh. This is our money, being written off.
  16. Six councillors call for chief executive to be suspended pending investigation into ‘misconduct’ Tomorrow's meeting should be interesting.

  20. 1. a 2. b 3.c 4.a 5.a 6.b 7.c Male, Aged 45-64 Lewis, I hope your project goes well. You could make your findings available via Shetlink in some way.
  21. ^^ I heard that as well - possibly the Shetland Times ? The Sun has covered some of the recent town hall shenanigans, however.
