Enough is enough (Gail McMillan)
When is this going to come to an end: the use of the public purse? Another near-on £7 million of Shetlanders’ money scuttled in the Nort Mooth.
Why is it the public never hear about what the council has spent until it goes belly-up? I dread to think how many belly-ups the council has had.
I think the time has come for Josie Simpson, our political leader, to come clean on how much and where the council has Shetlanders’ money outstanding.
Shetland has become another Sicily, which was or is run by the Mafia, and once more Shetland will probably be the laughing stock of the world.
Is it not a bit brass-necked of the council to even mention the word “tunnel”, when all these cuts to services are going on? Get a life, you lot in the town hall. If you are going to spend our money spend it where it is desperately required at this given time. As one councillor stated, the money could have gone to more needy outlets, such as the hostels, the pensioners’ lunch clubs, bus stations etc. And finally, how many millions of our money has been written off in the last, let’s say, two decades?
Enough is enough! The residents of Shetland have had it with the SIC and its many blunders. The time has come for the SIC to get the Shetland Charitable Trust cheque book out, withdraw the Shetlanders’ money from the charitable trust, and use the cash on some of the more needy causes. After all, the money is there for the Shetland population.
