  1. I find it odd how because its a new compnay, people are automatically getting suspicious... You realise the address a limited compnay is ragistered at doesnt mean thats where they are from, it could just be the agent they used to register... Also, age of director and age of buisness... someone has to start somewhere... maybe a 21 year old going door to door for work for his own business should be praised for being ambitious and driven, and not automatically assumed to be a dodger... I was 24 when i started my company... from shetland, work in aberdeen, but my company is registered in warrington.... I must be dodgy aswell....
  2. Arnold Clark are very good, and if your under 25 they dont charge a young drivers surcharge!
  3. Best the council just say "f*ck" it, build a few thousand houses around lerwick, shut down all other communitys, close all schools, shops and have one big super school to teach of the the young ones. Its fine, we dont mind that your plans are going to rip hearts out of communitys. Centralisation is the way ahead, no doby likes staying in small places like north roe or sandness anyway. Its a shame the the neglect of small areas like this over the years by all councils is eventually going to destroy them.
  4. Agree with the Kodak, I got one from Currys a few months back and its a very good printer.
  5. Did you know that 90% of people charge in relation to last years riots around the the UK were coloured? Arent you the same person that was upset about a Doll?? And does the name Kris Taylor mean anything to you. If it doesnt, read about him, and then tell me why the rasict finger is pointed in one direction only!
  6. I agree that same sex marraige should be legal. Anyone should be allowed to marry if they feel they want too. What i dont agree with is it being forced upon the church to accept and allow. If that is the churches veiw, why would "gays" want to get merried there anyway? Its like a personal opinion, it shouldnt be forced upon anyone.
  7. Why couldnt you close the tingwall straights for a day and divert traffic either though the west side or past the TWMA quarry and have the day there? Saves on a lot of driving.
  8. Unfortunatley nearly all of Shetlands Pubs, clubs and restaraunts are complete dives. Ive had a good meal and the queens, busta hotel and the Raba. The issues in why these places are so uninviting equally to do with the poor customer service. I moved south recently after spending nearly 3 years back in shetland (im a born and bred shetlander) And ignoring decor of a place, when your greeted by a waiter/waitress who take pride in there job, and you leave with feeling that youve been looked after, your more likley to go back. To walk into the mid brae in, wait an hour for your sub-standard food and get it thrown in front of you by someone in a pair of jeans and trainers isnt much of a dining experience!
  9. Im not a rasict, i dont have any hatered towards anybody chosen by race, culture etc... i'll laugh at rasict jokes, sexist joke, blond jokes. bearing in mind, these are only rasict of sexist if someone finds them that. The issue comes down complete to hypersesitivty. If your hypersensitive, you'll find a gollywog offensive. Take Australia as an example In Australia many young people of Greek, Italian, Lebanese, Syrian and other Mediterranean descent have reclaimed the name "wog" as a humorous identifier.
  10. Yes it was a cut and paste from an email i was sent, and i never prclaimed to have written it myself, but its the point i am trying to make. Why can only whites be racist?
  11. Makes Interesting Reading Proud to be White Michael Richards makes his point...... Michael Richards better known as Kramer from TVs Seinfeld does make a good point. This was his defense speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act. He makes some very interesting points... Someone finally said it. H ow many are actually paying attention to this? There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc. And then there are just Americans. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You call me 'White boy,' 'Cracker,' 'Honkey,' 'Whitey,' 'Caveman'.... and that's OK. But when I call you, <uuh uhh anality!! moo! sproot!>, Kike, Towel head, Sand-<uuh uhh anality!! moo! sproot!>, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink .. You call me a racist. You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you... so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live? You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day. You have Black History Month. You have Cesar Chavez Day. You have Yom Hashoah. You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi. You have the NAACP. You have BET... If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we'd be racists.. If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists. If we had White History Month, we'd be racists. If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance' OUR lives, we'd be racists. We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce. Wonder who pays for that?? A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant. If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships... You know we'd be racists. There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US . Yet if there were 'White colleges', that would be a racist college. In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists. You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists. You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist. I am proud.... But you call me a racist. Why is it that only whites can be racists??
  12. Stevie Jack - I would like this to be the closing comment on this forum. I'd like to point out [***Mod edit - personal attack removed***]. Every called someone from lerwick a "toony"? Its no different to calling a pakistani a p*ki Or a chinese person a ch*nky. Get over yourself.
  13. Okay let me put it this way would he (or yourself) call a friend or family member Chinky? Pakki? Wog? If you don't use that term for your own, you don't use it for anyone else. To suggest that the term "Black" is racist I think personally is rather telling. PC has not gone mad, just folks like playing it up more to cover their insecurities. Several episodes of the BBC's"Clare in the Community" spring to mind as good examples. Is it any different from alling a shelty a shelty? or a American a Yank?
  14. Hypersenstive reactions thats exactly what this is. Im sure if you go into the shop, speak tot he shop owner and say "is this gollywog being displyed as an act of racism or hater towards coloured people" the answer would be a BIG fat NO! It is the reciever who decides whether a remark, image, doll or anything else is regarded as rasict. And these are the people hat need coaching. Political correctness is ruining this country. My Grandfather was corrected in conversation for saying he would "like to go and get a chinky" Chinky? Really? What next, cant call a black board a black board? Oh wait, thats happened too! Ba ba black sheep? Better not sign that anymore. I suggest if you offended my something as innocent as a Doll. you are the one that needs the help.
  15. Darren Mackie Looks like he wont get a new contract at Aberdeen, he might have the quality to play for Ness B?
