Break wind together

So what’s the odds that the SNP will claim they will restore their leadership in Scotland next year by erecting even more wind turbines?

But not in their own back yard, thank you very much, and with some of our silly councillors helping. I can now see their next election slogan: “Let’s all break wind together.”

They closed the Scalloway school to save £700,000 or so but they will throw away £68 million on these eyesores. And in so doing, destroy the views of the most beautiful island in the world.

Good God! They have spent as much over the years on getting the tourists to come to Shetland in the first place, so now they will spend as much to keep them from wanting to come here full stop.

We should just have elected monkeys to the Town Hall. They could not have b*******d it up any worse for Shetland.
