On yesterday’s news that the Viking Energy project had been given permission I heard the profound statement that this might be “disappointing” for some people.
Does this mean that the destruction of the land and carbon sinks is disappointing?
When the value of your property has now become worthless – is that disappointing?
When your home and quality of life will be ruined – is that disappointing?
When your sons say they will never come back to live in what will be the Shetland industrial site – is that disappointing?
This is not just my story but also many other people’s too, whether they are fully aware of it yet or not.
The nine councillors – yes only nine – who approved this project have left Shetland a shameful legacy and it is contemptible that it has all been done for money.
