    I don't know how we will all cope with the trauma of having to momentarily having to ease off the gas a bit, turn the steering wheel a bit and then gently accelerate again to a reasonable speed before repeating the operation again a couple of times.

    The speed calming measures will no doubt hasten the apocalypse, the semi-circular road markings outside the Thule are in-fact the Gates to Hades and the Roads Department are the agents of Lucifer himself who financed this ludicrous safety initiative through mortgaging the souls of our children.

    We must not yield to the SIC's forces of evil.

    The damage to trade is usually due to the laziness of people who can't be bothered to use a shop unless they can park outside. Ask some of the shop owners who are no longer in the street.

    Crashbox, cost isn't always the main issue.
     
    For example the Nissan Leaf barely has a charge capacity that will get if from Yell to Lerwick and back.
     
    Good for banging around city centres, rubbish if you live anywhere that involves  a reasonable amount of travel.

    What about the small matter of the 63% of all Scottish exports that go Sooth to the rest of the UK?
     
    That's £49bn you've just smoked, George.
     
    Currently Scottish exports to the EU are a pathetic 16% (£12bn), and rest of world are 21% (£16bn), there's no way Scotland/Shetland can turn it's back on rUK as a trading partner.
     
    Also, if Scotland votes Indy and joins the EU, it will have to toe the EU line on common trade agreements. It will not be able to negotiate independently with rUK. So, if the EU take their bat home regarding trade with rUK - then Scotland is stuffed regarding the £63bn.
     
    Happy days, eh?

    What baffles me is why Nationalists (with a capital 'N') are so hell bent on getting away from Westmonster so they can be an 'independent nation' whilst simultaneously falling over themselves to become a minor player under the heel of the EU?
     
    Is it because deep down they really fear true independence and are really nothing more than ABE eejits?

    Scorrie reacted to blue beetle in Toft Pier   
    All im saying is that piers which are used by many different industries are vital for the on going success of  the wider Shetland economy. Using the fact that a few scallop boats havnt paid their dues for landing at a derelict pier as an excuse for not maintaining an essential part of our islands infrastructure is quite frankly pathetic.

    I think it's actually the cinema licence that is legally enforceable based upon the film classification.  So if a cinema states it is going to show films with a recommended age classification of 18 and over, then the cinema licence conditions expects age checks to be undertaken.

    Film classifications are recommendations only, they have no legal status.
     
     
    That would be the decent thing to do, a refund or replacement tickets for the group could have smoothed things over. Sure, it is made abundantly clear by Mareel that ID may be required, and is common knowledge for all cinemas or licensed premises, but it is also natural not to think about it when you're 34. Nobody is really in the wrong, and I hope one day I look young enough to be refused, i'd be delighted!

    Yes there are.. Part of the Servewise training (OK, it's for alcohol) involves photographs of different aged people. 
     
    Anyway, the fact that the person was served alcohol with 10 minutes of being refused entry to the cinema suggest, to me, that at least 1 member of Mareel staff needs a "refresher"

    Is this even news? "A man doesn't get into cinema but gets a pint"??
     
    Sub headline "Two different members of staff in different parts of a building had different opinions on how old a customer looked, and the customer didn't have the proof of age that customers are recommended to take with them"
     
    I expect that the exact same situation happens in cinemas and all kinds of licensed premises on a daily basis.
