    Is dat whit happens on da ferries? I somebody tests positive den dey aa isolate??
  2. I canna imagine da Flea wid ken how tae post messages on a forum!
  3. Good on dee. Somebody has tae dae it!
  4. I doot dis fellow is doin more harm tae his cause dan he is raisin support for it https://www.shetnews.co.uk/2022/03/04/uha-campaigner-turns-his-attention-to-community-safety-board/ I'm sure he tinks persistance will pay aff, and while I dunna necessarily disagree we him, I'm gettin a bit tired o him. If he had twartee of da weemin he's campaignin on behalf backin him up, den his points might be better received.
  5. I towt dis wis a weel written and informative letter A short history of Ukraine: a new Iron Curtain descending? https://www.shetnews.co.uk/2022/03/04/a-short-history-of-ukraine-a-new-iron-curtain-descending/
  6. So, whaur du you tink dis will end? And whit news sources do you find haes da most informative coverage?
  7. Agreed. Da Brugert shop hae splendid bacon, but it's a bit of a trek from Muckle Oxter HQ. Wid dat be Anderson's Butchers maet?
  8. I've had enough o yun pre-packed supermarket bacon. Is it joost me, or has it gotten warse pwer the past few years? When you pit in in da fryin pan it seems tae boil in it's ain scummy white water rather den fry. So... whit's da best locally produced bacon?
  9. Dir number is listed here - https://www.zettrans.org.uk/contact/bus-services - but dat's aboot aa I ken!
  10. And dunna forget da hosts and hostesses! Efter da last torch has been fired intae da galley, it's dem dat run da show - da rest o wis are joost dir guests! As I'm sure ony overexcited guizer whaa his been reprimanded by a hostess can testify, dey're no da put-upon subservient serving wenches some folk wid lik tae portray dem as! I wance got datn a stonesin for wirkin dirt dat I wis nearly greetin
  11. I'm on da fence re: female guizers in da respect dat I dunna hae a particularly strong opinion, but it does seem lik a thankless task tae try to spaek aboot realities and legalities when folk are bein swept along we emotions and a desire fur equalities above onything idder. I feel dat da debate has gotten mair divisive ower da past few years as da folk demanding change ir increasingly drawing parallels atween Lerrick UHA and domestic violence, misogyny, sexism etc which has left da many 'traditionalists' feelin bemused and under attack. It also seems to me dat ower da past decade or so Lerrick UHA has been promoted as a 'community' event in da widest sense o da word, but I feel dat da community is da 'Lerrick UHA community' and tae a large extent you hae to earn your place in it. If da 'Lerrick UHA community' want change den I'm sure it'll come. But if dey dunna, I doot dirs plenty o folk in da 'wider community' who simply winna accept it and we're doomed for dis divisiveness tae run on and on.
  12. @EM seemed to be da fellow that knows about the legalities aroond UHA. EM, is du oot dare?!
  13. Is it my imagination, or is dir a lot more letters aboot female guizers in Lerrick Up Helly Aa letters bein published in da local media dis year? Dir doesna seem to be ony new discussion points, or ony sign o reconciliation.... joost mair o it! I dunna sense ony change in folk I spik tae's opinions, but it feels lik folk are even mair entrenched da more it's spoken aboot.
  14. Yis, and his only redeeming characteristic is dat some folk tink he is a loveable buffoon. I'd have towt being a buffoon, lovable or not, wid hiv worked against a Prime Minister.
  15. I'm tinkin atween partygate and da Saville comments den it's time tae scoot!
