Contributors to the “web” and to Facebook do so with wide-ranging motives and may feel that they can express their views on every and all subjects – and why not?

Your regular feature Words from the Web is usually quite interesting but this week we note that a post from Gordon Harmer immediately after last week’s election, which can be said to be controversial, was picked up and published in The Shetland Times.
By the addition of the two following comments it could appear to attribute Gordon’s post as Wir Shetland’s policy, which it is not.
Neither is Gordon a spokesman for Wir Shetland; readers can view Wir Shetland’s policies on their website.
Secretary, Wir Shetland (but not a spokesman)
Caergarth, Scatness, Virkie.
