  1. I dont think there would be a problem fishing in any loch in shetland i have never had any. If fishing is your thing the anglers association would be a good club to join, my two trouts every five years is not worth 25 quid a year. There should be salmon running now no permit needed for dale tight lines.

  2. I might be wrong but were the road markings not changed after this accident ? That makes makes me think a problem was identified by the roads department ? Going at 60mph it would not be easy to stop if a stationary vehicle was stopped at the road junction faster no chance. I dont think this junction would be allowed today if planning was asked for. Some good points have been made on this topic, up to the courts though, whats for sure another fortune for our legal profession making their honest living.

  3. There are now notices there prohibiting this practice and the police are being sued for £200k...

    Am I the only person who thinks this lawsuit won't stand up in court? The cause of the accident seems to be mostly the careless driving of the non-police drivers.

    I wonder if suing the sic roads department might be a better case, no doubt if it is the police will shift the blame.
  4. Fuel sales is quite a lucrative business if you have large volume sales like leasks large rebates from the wholesaler too. I suppose its just changing times the likes of grantfield sound and sutherlands can forget about fuel sales when Tesco comes. Unless you have a site that can cope with large volume sales it will be quite useless trying to compete. They have all done very well out of fuel sales in the past big rebate cheques all around.

  5. Should it not be the customers that dictate what is stocked by Tesco not the planning department? If they dont stock the goods you want to buy vote with your feet and dont go back. As for the letter from Vic Thomas it would be against the competition laws to reduce prices for the sole purpose of removing your competition and then increase prices. Case law Laker Airlines v British Airways. I agree big buisness needs to be reminded of the law now and again.

  6. Minimum price for alchohol i have no problems with that as long as people are means tested then the higher paid folk pay more.

    Its only sugar and yeast quite simple to make . Some good vodka kits on Ebay 10 quid for 21 litres you will also need about 8 bags of sugar. I dont think their is a minimum age to buy these kit either which makes a mockery of the rules and regulations our goverment dreams up.
