  1. Hello everybody, I notice that on the mainland there is a growing movement of people who intend to refuse to pay their energy bills untill something is done about energy companies profits. Has anybody here signed up to this or knows anything about it.
  2. It has come to my notice that recently there has been mention of repopulating the islands. My son who comes here for holidays and to visit me has said that he would like to relocate to the Shetland isles on a permanent basis. This would be a win situation for the isles as he can drive tankers/hgvs, he would also bring his four small daughters and his wife who is a teacher in training. He has written to various employers and there are jobs available but he would need a council house. He has also written to various councillors and received replies but they could not offer any assistance. I do realize that there is a waiting list for council houses but I do find it strange that our councillors are looking at ways to bring foreign nationals here as I assume that they will require council houses. Could we have some sort of merit system in place to cater for off islanders to come here and bring with them needed skills and children to start the next generation. I look forward to all your comments.
  3. Yes, Bulter and Mulhern. You can look at mine. Aith.

    Be very careful. There are lots of scams out there. I was lucky as I got my money back, most do not.
  7. Where have all the regulars gone, foreign holidays perhaps. Can we manage without them.
  8. Just phoned up Gremista and a very helpful man took my name and said that he would put my name on and I could collect when next in town.
  9. How can I obtain a replacement recycling bag. The one that came with the bins and was for glass.
  10. O dear, Am I right in thinking that our leaders are not really concerned or interested in our welfare and are only interested in the money they can get even if the product kills us.
  11. I note that a large amount of heroin has been intercepted and that is good but if you look at the worldwide figures for deaths from heroin against worldwide figures for deaths from smoking drinking why are these substance users not being targeted.
  12. Thank you George that was a great help.
  13. Hello. As my house has underfloor electric heating which does not work if there is a power cut I am considering some type of gas heater so I would be grateful for any advice/information as regards running costs type of gas etc. I did consider wood burning but as you need installation and also the cleaning and getting wood this option does not seem the best.
  14. If we are not careful we will find that we are like China where you can disappear for saying something that the authorities do not like.
  15. You do not have freedom of speech and with all the new powers that are being given to the police you will soon not be able to protest about anything. These new laws of course will all be rescinded once the pandemic is over. I am not Jan.
